If Kill List placed Ben Wheatley among British cinema’s most incendiary new talents, this latest exercise in black comedy certainly confirms it. What’s striking about Sightseers is how Wheatley takes two social misfits and their mobile home on a trip round some of Britain’s most pitiful tourist attractions, then creates a seemingly inexorable logic as their misadventures turn into the stuff of outright horror. Offbeat, funny and highly original, it is executive produced by Edgar Wright and the team behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
