Chris (Steve Oram) and his new girlfriend Tina (Alice Low) are an unlikely couple. Both in their late 30s, Chris is a total dullard, fascinated with obscure museums and offbeat tourist attractions that most ordinary folk would probably be bored senseless by. Whilst Tina is an extreme introvert, who has spent virtually her entire life closeted in the family home, caring for her mother.
So when Chris offers to take her away for a few weeks on a caravanning holiday, much to the chagrin of her overbearing mother, one might assume they were in for a fairly dreary time. But we soon discover that Chris has a much darker side.
It starts at the Crich tram museum when he 'inadvertently' backs over an annoying litter lout in the car park. The police write it off as an accident, but soon after, similarly annoying people are getting shoved off cliffs, run off the road and battered to death with hiking poles. And it seems Tina has a similarly dark streak in her, as they tour around the country, leaving a trail of corpses in their wake.
Darkly humoured, featuring some hilarious kill scenes and some exceptionally disturbing knitted underwear, the film is extremely good fun and takes great pride in poking fun at some of more bizarre tourist locations us English regard as "quaint" (in what other country would people be fascinated by Railway viaducts and 'Pencil' museums???).
The humour and self deprecating style is all very "English" though, so I'm not sure how well this will translate overseas, but if you like comedy horrors, such as "Shaun of the Dead" or comedy programs like "The Royle Family", you should enjoy watching this.
