"An Impressive debut" Timeout

Directors: David Hoyle, Mike Nicholls, Gary Reich

Writer: David Hoyle, Ashley Ryder

Stars: David Hoyle, Ashley Ryder


David Hoyle co-directs his feature debut and stars as UNCLE DAVID in this unsettling tale of an uncle and his nephew (pornstar Ashley Ryder), combining a heightened sense of English normality with the logic of madness.

This low budget, black comedy is David Hoyle’s feature debut and he is joined by pornstar Ashley Ryder as his nephew. Both actors are improvising their lines which gives the whole work an edginess, heightened by the atmosphere of an out-of-season caravan-park on the Isle of Sheppey. The banalities of conversation between uncle and nephew are thrown into the realms of the utterly unconventional when we realise that not only are they involved in a sexual relationship but there is a sinister reason for their holiday. We are drawn into a world of disturbing madness, whose cracked logic is delivered with an unnerving avuncular charm.
