Cinedigm Entertainment Group and New Video have announced an October 19th limited theatrical release for the Irish feral terror film Citadel from first-time writer/director Ciaràn Foy and we have a new bit of eye candy on tap for you!
The Ireland-set horror film had its world premiere at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Midnighter Audience Award. Citadel is the first scripted acquisition under the recently announced partnership between the two companies.
Writer/director Foy brings us the flick, which stars Aneurin Barnard, James Cosmo, Wumni Mosaku, Jake Wilson, and Amy Shiels; and this baby looks to be one to keep an eye on!
Tommy Cowley (Aneurin Barnard) lives a quiet life in a decaying apartment complex with his highly pregnant wife. The couple is attacked one day by a group of hooded young thugs, and after a shocking act of violence, Tommy is left to raise his newborn daughter alone.
So shaken by the events that he’s developed extreme agoraphobia, Tommy alternates days hiding out indoors in his new flat from imagined threats and intense therapy sessions aimed at bringing him back to normalcy.
When the same hooded gang, seemingly intent on kidnapping his daughter, begins terrorizing his life again, he’s torn between his paralyzing fear and protective parental instinct. With the help of a vigilante priest who has uncovered the genesis of this ruthless, potentially supernatural gang, Tommy must overcome his fears and venture into the heart of the abandoned tower block known as the CITADEL to save his family.
Winner of the Midnighter Audience Award at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival, CITADEL brings a fresh take to classic horror by raising the question: How can you protect your family from evil when you’re afraid of everything?
