Movie Info

Bex and Dawn are trapped. Everyday they work the same market food stall, selling the same food to the same low lifes. They dream of owning their own upmarket cafe, but no one will give them a loan. Then they meet Jeremy, an independent businessman who offers to fund their dream. Shocked and thrilled, they accept - but soon the true motives for Jeremy's kind offer shine through. He is a vicious loan shark - his ways and means are as unforgiving as his capacity for terror and cruelty. Unable to meet his outrageous payment demands, Bex and Dawn must find it within themselves to turn the tables on their viciously calculated aggressor, leading to a maelstrom of bloody, savage and pitiless retribution.

  • Here we see a broken Britain dominated and drained by a self-appointed élite of financial bullies, and a working populace whose hard-earned capital seems always to drift out of their hands to the undeserving and the corrupt.

  • Slinger creates one of British cinema's vilest villains, excruciatingly smug but menacing and deadly to boot.
