Christopher Webster [Celluloid 01.06.11] United Kingdom movie trailer news horror thriller

Pretty sure it was Guy Ritchie who alerted the world to what exactly a "Pikey" was when he hired Brad Pitt to play one in Snatch. Essentially I think they are like hillbillies here in the States. Just simple country folk... who'll slit your throat at a sideways glance.

On the surface, Travellers appears to be your typical city-folk-in-peril thrillers, but after watching the trailer and reading an early review over at one of my new favourite sites, ionlywatch18s, I think it could be a well shot British shocker.

Four friends set out on a motorcycle adventure weekend, clocking up miles in an attempt to outrun their age and urban lifestyles. After bartering with a local land owner for a place to set up camp, they spend the night reminiscing over their wasted youth. The following morning they spot an ominous looking caravan, and decide to investigate. Within minutes, an idiotic prank leads to a series of brutal events and a deadly race for survival.

A modern plunge back into the worlds created by movies such as 'Deliverance' and 'Southern Comfort' but with a gritty British twang. Kidnap, murder and a hidden past are just some of the reasons these four adventurers should have stayed at home. An action thriller that will make you question who the villains really are. You cant outrun what's in your blood.

Written and directed by Kris McManus, and produced by Brian Levine, the film stars Charley Boorman (Long Way Round), and Dean Jagger (The Killing Truth).

Check out the trailer or Travellers after the break.

I would say Pikeys are more akin to gypsies rather than hillbillies.

It's interesting talking to english about them because the ones that has any contact with them seriously hates them. As they are generally poor a lot of them pretty much need to do illegal stuff to get by. That combined with the whole nomadic traveling lifestyle means they can get away with it pretty easily too.

There's a lot of english seriously frustrated by the fact that, and I'm quoting some english now, they get the benefits from the government and exploit the laws but don't live by them and don't contribute to the society at all.

But it's not PC to judge an entire people so you can see the frustration of some english who are really annoyed with them but can't really express it in fear of being considered racist.
