The trailer above is for a Scottish horror film called Citadel and looks suitably grimy and disturbing…after all it was shot in Scotland.
*tap dances, claps hands and shouts ‘Tada!’*
The Irish/Scottish co-produced movie features rising star Aneurin Barnard, (Ironclad) and James Cosmo, (Braveheart, Game Of Thrones) and deals with a violent, mysterious pack of vicious feral children on a dilapidated housing estate. The plot rattles along like so:
Based on director Ciarán Foy’s real life experiences with being violently attacked and his subsequent life as an agoraphobic, Citadel is a very personal journey. The run-down suburbia of Edenstown casts a shadow over Tommy Cowley’s life. Trapped there by his agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children, he now finds himself terrorized by the same mysterious hooded gang, who seem intent on taking his baby daughter. Torn between the help of an understanding nurse and a vigilante priest, he discovers that to be free of his fears, he must finally face the demons of his past and enter the one place that he fears the most…the abandoned tower block known as the CITADEL.
Honestly? You had us at ‘pack of vicious feral children‘.
