Lake District locations 'star' in new black comedy film Sightseers

A black comedy which takes movie-goers on a horror journey across the Lake District opens in cinemas tomorrow.

Have your say

@ John - having viewed the trailer for the movie I feel I have to ask - are you a Daily Mail reader?

Charlotte's point is you have used an article on a horror movie to complain bitterly about how awful your life in Keswick is.

That's the real horror.

Looking forward to catching the film on DVD if it doesn't get a showing in Carlisle.

A real shame that I wont be able to see this film at the cinema.
With all the screens that VUE has it could have found somewhere to screen it, hope it gets a chance in Carlisle cinema.

Looks a fantastic British film with comedy, violence and knitting and British attractions like Long Meg stone circle featured.

Does it really depict Cumbria at its best? Cumbria should be perceived as tops in tourism. Need to avoid horrors of the Lakes or advertisements which maintain "it always rains in Windermere" when it doesn't! Historical quote applies to Borrowdale rains 3 days out of 4!

@ Charlotte, sitting comfortably? then pay attention please, i am well aware of house prices locally and nationally having spent considerable time in both, in actual fact in the south there are amny items cheaper than here in cumbria, definetly, as for climbing shops etc, a small town with approx 5000 pple, having 30 outdoor shops, is ridiculous. in an area where local people struggle to make ends meet, there isnt even one cheap affordable supermarket, i also think your comment about not going in shops because i dfont like them , is hardly a considered response, as for the local econmy, 2.25 million vehicles use the a66 approx, each year, and tourists have been coming to keswick, for example long before the expplosion of overpriced junk outdoor wear, which only actually benefits the shopowners who sell them, or the importers of much of thsese items from the far east.which is hardly fair trade. many house prices in kent for example are a lot cheaper than here.

Honestly John, any opportunity to whinge! If you don't like outdoor clothing shops then don't go in them, why complain when they bring money into the local economy. And if you think house prices here are expensive have yourself a little trip down South and prepare yourself for a shock.

The true horror storty of living in the lake district, is the over priced ghods, shops that sell outdoor clothes, keeswick for example has i believe about 30 outdoor shops, not to mention, lack of affordable housing, or a lettings policy thats dreamt up by those who have no understanding of local need, unfortunatley unlike the film, this isnt fiction. and a laughable non existent village network transport infrastructure. welcome to reality.

Don't know about other local cinemas but Sightseers will be shown every day at the Plaza Cinema Workington from Friday 7th Dec show times to be confirmed.

Clair, I think it's being shown at Plaza, Workington (much to my surprise!)

Will a new tattoo studio in Carlisle persuade you to get a tattoo?

Yes - I might be tempted

No - I don't like tattoos

I would rather go to a more established studio
