They Must Have Short Summers in the UK
The poster and title – sooo misleading. In fact, it’s pretty CRUEL they used a horror-movie themed advertisement to sell a dramatic story that takes place in less than 24 hours, let alone a whole “summer.”

Movie posters and trailers are often deceptive, but it’s their job to sell their product. The actual substance of this “true story,” is NOTHING like the Friday the 13th-type poster and title. Thankfully, I was not tricked as I had read the synopsis before clicking on this movie to watch. But, looking back, while writing this, I’m appalled at the artwork for the film and title. I mean, as stated, this all takes place in less than 24 hours, not the typical 3-months of summer.

Another flaw, if you can call the person who named this and advertisers “flaws” for the film, itself, is the substance. The movie is incredibly short for such a horrific “real life-inspired” event and even at its 80 minutes, the actual movie ends at minute 72 with 8 astounding minutes of credits. Additionally, all-but nothing happens for the first 45-50 minutes, so you’ll have basically 22 bona fide minutes of actual substance of the “inspired events.”

Now, that all said, those approximately 22 minutes are extreme, shocking and further detriments the title. It wasn’t “cruel,” it was inhuman. “Disgustingly evil” would describe those last 22 minutes.

Basically one hot head loses his mind and reverts back to pre-primate thinking after a break up. He concocts a lie with one of his blokes after he hears of another lie of a young autistic boy sleeping with his now ex. The entire premise of the lies is weak, but apparently, the hot head needs his vengeance out on someone and the power he absorbs by manipulating and controlling a girl who fancies him and his mate is intoxicating to him.

Meanwhile, the autistic boy, probably his first ever trip out alone from his parents in the wilderness is completely content with his accomplishments of camping alone. He truly looks at peace. And that’s what makes the events that follow, that fateful Saturday, when the 3 bad teens meet up with him and punish him (BAD) for absolutely nothing…all the more unbelievably torturous to see.

Anyone getting mistreated by bullies is bad enough, but to see how this completely innocent and at peace autistic boy is tortured so one alpha male can release some anger…is an abomination.

Not sure the intentions of the filmmakers. To tell the story of the non-eventful events leading up to the tragic story and show the monsters these pricks were, or to cash in on the event for film-rights. For, once the story concludes – and believe me, I was completely and utterly emotional, it just abruptly ends, giving us a description of what happened next in 3 short sentences for what probably dragged on for months, if not years.

I will say this: despite any intentions, the movie was beautifully shot, well-acted, believable and those last 22 minutes, including the VERY last 3-4, were so emotional for me, it’s almost worth a recommendation. But, it’s hard to tell someone else to see this when probably no one should ever.

Unless they want to know true evil of some dumb bloke.


Final thoughts: Since this movie is so heavy, I’d like to finish on a lighter note: I loved the song “Cruel Summer” by BOTH Bananarama and Ace of Base in my younger days. That’s all. Nothing about the movie and no, they play neither song in the movie. Spoiler? Ha.
