Dir: Ben Wheatley
Starring: Steve Oram and Alice Lowe
A caravanning couple on a road trip kill everyone that annoys them
This comedy horror is at times bizarre, and at others downright disturbing, yet for the most part is darkly hilarious. The film features some very good scenes filmed at the National Tramway Museum at Crich, Derbyshire, with plenty of vintage trams on view. Trams that are seen are Derby Corporation No.1, Glasgow Corporation ‘Kilmarnock Bogie’ No.1115, Glasgow Corporation No.812, Blackpool Corporation ‘Balloon Car’ No.249, London County Council No.1, plus New South Wales Government Steam Tram No.47, which is briefly visible in the background to one scene. There are also some good shots of London Passenger Transport Board ‘E1’ No.1622, which includes scenes filmed onboard. In addition, the Making of documentary on the DVD features additional shots of No.812 and No.1622. The final scene where Steve Oram falls to his death used the Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle-Carlisle Railway and there are some very good shots of the majestic structure. Not nearly enough footage of this viaduct has appeared on screen but this film attempts, in part, to at least put that right. The ground-level shots are interspersed with camera tricks ‘up-above’ that involved placing a mock 5ft wall on the deck of a different disused railway viaduct, the location of which is undisclosed to help with the owner’s privacy.
