Ciaran Foy's tale of urban terror and agoraphobia will be something worth leaving the house for.
October often feels like a missed opportunity, with horror offerings at the theater being slight. This year, however, looks like a healthy mix of big and small (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4, SINISTER, V/H/S) and the debut from Irish director Foy has just been added to the menu.
CITADEL sees "the dilapidated suburbia of Edenstown cast a shadow over Tommy Cowley’s life. Trapped there by his agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children, he nowfinds 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 tobe 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."
Foy's film is strong and often unnerving, if ultimately thin. You'll be able to catch it in limited release October 26 (alongside Jaume Balguero's great SLEEP TIGHT).
