We here at ScreenAnarchy are big fans of Ciaran Foy's feature film debut Citadel
. It's an intense, tight horror film that examines a young man's crippling agoraphobia in the wake of a violent attack by strange youths that leaves his wife dead. Our own Brian Clark described it
as "one of the most intense depictions of pure fear I've ever seen", and it was on my top 20 list
of last year. Mixing monsters will the real-life terrors of poverty and isolation, it's both personal and incredibly relatable, particularly to those with knowledge of life on Britain's social housing estates, where crime is often rampant with seemingly no way out.
The film is due for release on Friday, July 12, and there are four preview screenings on Tuesday, July 9 in select cities in Scotland:Aberdeen Cineworld, Union Square, 7.40pm
Edinburgh Cineworld, Fountain Park, 8.10pm
Falkirk Cineworld, Central Retail Park, 7.40pm
Glasgow Cineworld, Renfrew Street, 8pm
Winner of the Feature Film Méliès d'Argent at the Neuchâ
tel International Fantastic Film Festival, and the Audience Aware for Best Feature Film at the Paris International Fantastic Film Festival, the amazing art direction and claustrophobic atmospheric story demand to be seen on the big screen. Highly recommended.
