We have some new sales art and a still for Menhaj Huda’s psycho-laden flick Comedown, which has been kicking around since 2009 and tells of the dangers of taking to the airwaves illegally. Listen up and check it out, kids!

Martin Compston, Geoff Bell, Adam Deacon, Red Madrell, and Charleene Rena star.

Penned by Steven Kendall, the story tells of “six tearaway teenagers setting up a relay aerial for a local pirate radio station at the top of a condemned tower block who are targeted by a resident psychopath intent on exterminating the ‘vermin’ he perceives are besieging his home.

Original Long-Form Synopsis
Mercy Point, a high-rise tower block conceived and built in the Sixties, condemned in the Nineties. Abandoned by all, it is now home to a brooding malevolence, and what resides within its empty floors is truly terrifying.

LLOYD, a young man in his early 20’s, is facing the reality of fatherhood, determined to rise above the pervading knife culture and bleak environment he calls home. He’s back after time away in jail, reunited with the crew he left behind: GARY – pyromaniac joker of the pack, JASON – Lloyd’s Alpha male rival, COL – Jason’s slow-witted lackey with a crush on KELLY – boisterous and text obsessed, joined at the hip to YASMINE – Lloyd’s pregnant girlfriend.

Jason receives a call from pirate radio station Skank; broadcasts have been severely disrupted by the loss of one of its relay aerial transmitters. There’s a cash incentive and free drugs in return for erecting a new transmitter, and the perfect high-rise location looms overhead – Mercy Point.

Loaded with aerial transmitter, narcotics and alcohol, and using their mobile phones as torches, the crew venture into Mercy Point. Once inside and up on the 20th floor, they begin to fight, fall out and fracture. Setting up the aerial, tuned to ‘Skank Radio’, Jason, Gary , Col and Kelly try to salvage the evening. Booze is downed, grass is smoked and pills are popped. Lloyd declines the drugs, but that doesn’t stop Jason spiking his drink.

Events take a terrifying twist when Yasmine is snatched from the roof. Realising their friend has disappeared, yet at odds with each other, the frightened youths search the dark, eerily hollow interior of the tower. Doors bolted, stairways obstructed, lift now inoperable, they find themselves trapped in a hazardous, concrete labyrinth, and when the pills kick in – the real terror begins. As the crew begin tripping out in the darkness, someone is exacting their own psychotic revenge, intent on ensuring the kids never come down alive.

A deranged tenant, living a solitary existence, is on a mission to eradicate what he sees as vermin invading his home. And just like rats the kids can run, they can hide, but no one knows this tower like this tenant.

In order to survive the terror, this tough gang of youngsters must put their differences aside if they are to overcome their relentless adversary, or find themselves condemned to a high-rise hell.

Comedown is a terrifying teen horror, real kids’ relationships in the midst of truly tripped-out horror and tension. The raw teenage angst of Kidulthood grows up to meet the all-too-real terror of Wolf Creek.

Published

on

Sad and shocking news has come in from the music world as Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of The Cranberries, has been found dead at the all too young age of just 46.

According to the Associated Press, the singer’s publicist, Lindsey Holmes, confirmed she died in London, where she was recording. “No further details are available at this time,” Holmes said, adding that the singer’s family was “devastated” by the news.

London’s Metropolitan Police were summoned to a hotel just after 9:00 AM today. As of now her death is classified as “unexplained.”

During her career, O’Riordan provided music for the short film Z, Birdemic: Shock and Terror, Evilenko, and many more films and television projects. We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to extend our sincerest of condolences to Dolores’ family members, friends, and constituents.

If you, if you could return. Don’t let it burn. Don’t let it fade.
