Originally, Salah (Ziad Abasa), son of immigrants from Turkey, wanted
to study for a business degree - but when his father is killed by a bunch
of drunk customers in his kebab shop, Salah finds himself forced to run
said shop instead - and he sure gets the worst of British binge-drinking
culture, serving mostly drunk customers on weekends, and being treated to
quite a bit of racism in the process. Things take a turn when he
accidently kills one particularly annoying customer - but not a turn for
the worse, as Salah soon works the guy's flesh into his kebabs, which do
become quite a hit with the party crowd. So Salah just continues killing
those of his clientel he particularly despises - and the police of course
is none the wiser. Shit hits the fan though when prominent nightclub owner
Jason Brown (Scot Williams) wants to take over Salah's place, and while
Salah's not willing to sell, Jason Brown is not one to accept a no from
anyone. And Jason Brown is not the guy you can just lure into a trap and
then turn into kebab ...
K-Shop is quite an unusual
film, blending horror mainstays with biting social satire, staying serious
throughout while being totally aware of the over-the-topness of its story.
Now add to that a bunch of spot on performances, a dynamic direction that
gets the most out of its limited sets, and authentic (hidden camera)
footage of the weekend night crowd drinking, pissing, puking, fucking in
the streets, and you've got yourself quite an interesting movie!
