Ciaran Foy’s “Citadel” is a horror film that walks the line between supernatural thriller, kids-gone-wrong tale, and religious terror. Balancing all of these threads, the film creates one of the best genre offerings of the year. Two spooky new clips give you a good idea of the atmosphere and level of tension that works throughout. Read our review HERE.
Here’s a synopsis:
Tommy Cowley (Aneurin Barnard) lives a quiet life in a decaying apartment complex with his highly pregnant wife. The couple is attacked one day by a group of hooded young thugs, and after a shocking act of violence, Tommy is left to raise his newborn daughter alone.
So shaken by the events that he’s developed extreme agoraphobia, Tommy alternates days hiding out indoors in his new flat from imagined threats and intense therapy sessions aimed at bringing him back to normalcy. When the same hooded gang, seemingly intent on kidnapping his daughter, begins terrorizing his life again, he’s torn between his paralyzing fear and protective parental instinct. With the help of a vigilante priest who has uncovered the genesis of this ruthless, potentially supernatural gang, Tommy must overcome his fears and venture into the heart of the abandoned tower block known as the Citadel to save his family.
“Citadel” opens in a limited release November 9, with more cities popping up as time passes by. Hopefully it picks up a groundswell of support, because this is one of the most worthy horror offerings to come along in a while.
