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.

I bought this movie about 6 years ago..i loved it..yes in parts it's slow & drawn out..and there are a lot of "why didn't he's"..much like what happens in everyday life..why didn't we..but it does have an underlying message..i got it..did you..i think in time..this flick could become a classic in its own category !.. ;>
A bit too slowly paced. But it makes up for in constant INTENSITY. Well written and acted. So definitely worth a watch.
If you’ve ever seen the Wanderers, It’s the Ducky Boys on heavy acid. This movie sucks from beginning to end.
demonic children creatures with a lot of darkness and atmosphere, indie horror done right!
Just because your movie calls out demonisation of the poor doesn't make the movie itself any less demonisation of the poor. Not a bad film for what it is, just a little thin and with a fairly uninspired end.
