A questionable thriller that leaves a bad taste

Unresolved class tussles are all the rage in UK horror right now (F, Cherry Tree Lane), and writer/director Kris McManus’ no-budget debut is a patchy survival thriller that pits city-boy bikers against angry pikeys (their words) with bug-eyed, but rarely boring, results.

Though all-but scuppered by scripting issues and variable acting, it boasts a beautiful slide-guitar score, a fearsome bare-knuckle boxing sequence and a sweary cameo from Charlie Boorman.

Whether that constitutes ample recompense really depends on your tolerance for enthusiastic, if amateurish, exploitation.
