Bloody vengeance comes to the streets of a British seaside town in this darkly comic horror, which sees a young student turn vigilante on the drunken thugs who caused the death of his kebab shop-owner father.
A tense and gruesome thrill-ride, K-Shop delivers a cutting social commentary about the sordid side of British nightlife – with a side order of stomach-churning black humour.

After his father is killed in an altercation with drunken thugs, Salah's world is plunged into darkness. Forced into running the family kebab shop alone, Salah struggles to manage the increasingly rowdy night life and when a fight with an angry customer goes fatally wrong, he finds himself with a dead body on his hands. With no faith in the authorities Salah disposes of the body in the one place he knows best… the kebabs. As the shop's gullible customers devour the new recipe, Salah develops a taste for the kill and seizes the opportunity to turn vigilante and seek revenge on the abusive drunkards plaguing the streets.
We like it because:
As the first feature film ever shot in Bournemouth, K-Shop follows in the bloody footsteps of homegrown horror hits such as Severance and Dog Soldiers – making for a film that’s distinctly British with a dark sense of humour.
And while writer-director Dan Pringle packs K-Shop with the blood, guts and meat to satisfy the hunger of the most hardcore horror fans, there’s some genuinely smart satire as the film takes a meat cleaver to drinking culture – hacking to pieces the kind of carnage many Brits will recognize from the streets most Friday and Saturday nights.
There’s a great breakout performance from Ziad Abaza with support from a fine cast of British acting talent.
Most importantly, K-Shop is an exciting and tasty horror, with enough nerve-shredding tension and excruciating violence to keep you gripped throughout – the perfect horror takeaway!
