In an edition full of first works, a film like this one is a must. Here we are with K-Shop by Dan Pringle. It is a masterly portrait of the filthiest face of our society and a direct criticism against hate and racism.
Year after year, new directors surprise us with films like this one; these directors deserve a praise that, unfortunately, they very often do not receive.
Regarding the film… everybody knows the saying the says that «food is not a toy», after watching K-Shop, we think that most people in the audience will think twice before going to a kebab shop again.
Horrortalk – K-Shop is a ball-breaking horror film.
ukhorrorscene – K-Shop fun and incredibly dark and I think that this is because of its verisimilitude.
brutalashell – An incredibly stunning début.
