Citadel trailer builds tension through therapy

Citadel.jpgCitadel is an interesting looking film from writer and director Ciarán Foy starring a small cast of Aneurin Barnard, James Cosmo, Wunmi Mosaku and Amy Shiels. The trailer is rather powerful and builds well to a bit of a surprising closing moment.

I'm rather taken by it and the trailer on its own and the blurb just adds to the idea. This could be a nice little thriller and perhaps ultimately horror.

Here's the bigger blurb for Citadel although you might want to watch the trailer first though.

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

So, here's the trailer for Citadel which comes through TrailerAddict. As I say I think it looks rather good, give it a go.
