London Film Festival Cult preview: Citadel Simon Fitzjohn October 5, 2012 Features, London Film Festival, Production Photograph 1969 Part hoody horror and part a slick slice of urban paranoia, Citadel looks to be one of the more intriguing offerings in the Cult strand at this year’s festival. Set in a run-down tower block, the action focuses on Tommy (Aneurin Barnard), who is left to fend for himself and his newborn daughter after his pregnant wife is attacked and left for dead. Terrified of setting foot outside his apartment after the incident, Tommy is convinced the rowdy youths will return. And things take an even more sinister turn when a vigilante priest turns up to tell him that not only are his fears correct, but that these urban menaces are actually after his baby. With hints of flicks like Eden Lake, Them and the underrated F, the trailer positively drips with dread and a feeling of unease. Helmed by first-time director Ciaran Foy and also starring the likes of James Cosmo, Citadel screens at the festival on the 19 and 21 of October.
