Urban Horror Flick Comedown Headed To UK DVD This January

Comedown (2012) Movie Image

Note to self: Never break into abandoned buildings in large metropolitan areas. Although the idea of urban exploration excites me in ways I’m uncomfortable describing on this website, the possibility of being eviscerated by a deranged psychopath is enough to keep me from pursuing my unusual dreams. Such is life, I suppose.

Enter director Menhaj Huda’s 2012 slasher “Comedown.” The film takes a handful of street thugs, a topic explored in the director’s previously film “Kidulthood,” and tosses them inside a dark and spooky building equipped with a blood-thirsty psychopath. I’m sure you can guess where things are headed. The trailer looks pretty straightforward.

For those who need their hand held, here’s the synopsis:

Six tearaway teenagers break into an abandoned, condemned tower block to make mischief and party. When one of the group is snatched from the roof her friends begin to search the dark, eerily hollow interior of the tower and soon realize that they are not alone in the building. A resident psychopath lurks within the floors and is determined to track down and kill them one-by-one, ensuring they never leave his building alive.

In other words, it’s kind of like “The Raid: Redemption” with a horror twist. Except not really. “Comedown” is slated to hit UK DVD on January 28, 2013. A US release date is currently unavailable as of this writing. If you’d like to watch the trailer, you may do so below.
