We're always keen to get behind a decent Irish flick, but this time we'll need to get behind a cushion too; Citadel is an Irish horror. Yikes!
Citadel will arrive in cinemas to creep us out next month (June 14th to be exact) but you can check out the trailer right here. As for the story? Here be the official blurb:
Tommy Cowley is a young father inflicted with chronic agoraphobia since his wife was brutally attacked by a gang of twisted feral children. Trapped in a dilapidated suburb, he finds himself terrorised by the same gang, who now seem intent on taking his baby daughter. Torn between the help of an understanding nurse and a vigilante priest, Tommy sets out to learn the nightmarish truth surrounding these hooded children. He also 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.
Certainly sounds original and considering I hit myself in the face within seconds of watching the trailer (for the fright, you see) I get the feeling that this movie's level of 'oh-sweet-Jesus-where's-my-mammy' scariness won't disappoint. Written and directed by Ciaran Foy, Citadel stars James Cosmo (Game of Thrones), Aneurin Barnard and Amy Shiels.
