Shallow Grave – 30th Anniversary

Directed by Danny Boyle

Three flatmates, a dead body, and a suitcase full of cash – what’s the worst that could happen? Featuring a killer cast and pitch-black humour, Danny Boyle’s feature debut Shallow Grave is back on the big screen in celebration of its 30th anniversary. 

David, Alex and Juliet are looking for a flatmate. They don’t want a nerd, a freak or a social inadequate, which is a pity, because they seem to be the only ones answering the ad. 

When Hugo appears, he’s like a breath of fresh air. He passes the rigorous interviewing process with ease and moves in. But the next day, his flatmates make a shocking discovery that shatters their short-lived domestic bliss.
