Directed by Ciaran Foy
An agoraphobic man enlists a renegade priest to save his daughter from an evil gang of feral children who attacked his wife. Urged to pity the impoverished youngsters by a social worker, Tommy (the wonderful Aneurin Barnard) turns instead to the priest (James Cosmo of GAME OF THRONES) who believes the killer kiddies are demons who need to be exterminated. Roger Ebert hit the nail on the head when he called CITADEL, "a horrifying thriller painted on a small and very dark canvas." It's an intensely disturbing film sure to keep you from falling asleep tonight.

Cast: Aneurin Barnard, James Cosmo, Ian Hanmore
decent story, good acting, good setting, good movie.
Urban decay and desperation drip off every frame of this film and make for a far greater terror than the supernatural elements. The lead actor's portrayal of someone beaten down by the city and violence is very affecting. That the "monsters" resemble inner-city youths in hoodies speaks to a more suburban fear of the downtrodden.
