Nasty Neighbours go to war in a suburban cul-de-sac, when Mr. Peach (Tomlinson), a failed double glazing salesman, goes head-to-head with loutish new resident-next-door, Mr. Chapman (Daniels). Mr. Chapman is contemptuous and scornful of Peach's attempts to draw him into the cosy community of the close, and Mr. Peach begins to focus the bitterness of his career failures and mounting debts on his new neighbours until matters escalate into a bloody finale.

In adapting her smash hit play for the big screen, first time director Isitt arrives as a fully-formed and unique new voice in British cinema, one that could well prove to be increasingly important in years to come. This is jet-black comedy with the sort of razor sharp wit you could slash your wrists on.
