We've been following High-Rise and its production for quite some time and, from everything we've seen so far, it looks like Ben Wheatley has absolutely nailed it.
The early word has it something along the lines of this generation's A Clockwork Orange, mixing social commentary with brutal horror and violence to make something that's truly unmissable. The first Irish screening of High-Rise will take place at this year's ADIFF on Monday, February 22nd at the Light House. Unfortunately, it looks like tickets for that event are sold out - which is no surprise as Ben Wheatley will be conducting a Q&A session after the screening.
The film won't be in cinemas again until March 18th when it goes on full release, but in the meantime, here's a brand-new trailer and a poster to go along with it.
Oh, that track that plays during it is Com Truise and the song is Data Kiss. Check him out, he's brilliant.
