Movie Review: Salvage (2010)

In this low budget and ineffective UK horror, it’s Christmas Eve on what looks like the leftover set from ‘Brookside’. Via a lot of incoherent yelling we learn that a shipping container has washed up on a nearby beach and that Jodie a sulky teenager has to spend some time with her estranged mother Beth.

There is bad acting and shrieking and then soldiers invade the cul-de-sac and order everyone indoors. The phones don’t work and even looking out the window is a bad idea. Via long boring interludes and more incoherent screaming we learn what is loose. Beth finds Jodie and there is a downer ending. This was awful, it’s no ‘Dog Soldiers’ or ‘Shaun of the Dead’.
