So harsh, bleak and intense it achieves a level of raw power. A sordid little nightmare of contemporary England.

The film's one major fault is that Reilly's character repeatedly acts in ways that serve the plot, but which run contrary to rational human behaviour. By contrast, the shattering downbeat ending is well earned and genuinely shocking.

Instead of Deliverance's deep backwoods hicks we have now backwoods chavs who live a life unscrutinised by cops or anyone. Watkins has consumed all those tabloid hoodie tales and regurgitated a horror.

You don't watch it, you survive it. A battering experience, and the hardest Brit horror in years.

if it gets people talking about youth violence, class conflict and the gulf of social inequality in Britain, then all the better - and if it does not, at least it will give them a frightening, albeit derivative, ride.

Has some seriously haunting themes torn right from the headlines, giving us something thoughtful to chew on. Besides our fingernails.
