We heard good things about Tower Block out of last year’s Fantastic Fest and we;re pleased to report that the film will be released on DVD and Blu-ray via Shout! Factory on July 2nd.
Written by James Moran (Torchwood, Severance, Cockneys Vs. Zombies) and directed by Ronnie Thompson (Screwed) and James Nunn (Cockneys Vs. Zombies), the high concept suspense thriller stars Sheridan Smith(Quartet), Russell Tovey (Being Human, History Boys), Jack O’Connell (Skin, Harry Brown), Ralph Brown (Alien 3, Nearly Famous) and Kane Robinson (AKA rapper Kano).
“The residents of Tower Block 31 are terrified after witnessing the brutal murder of a young man. The case is left unsolved, due in large part to their collective silence. A year later, with their building marked for demolition, the witnesses begin to find themselves picked off one by one by a mysterious sniper out for justice. Pitted against not only the sniper’s deadly traps, but also each other, the residents must figure out a way to escape their own building…or die trying.
Featuring critically hailed performances by Jack O’Connell (300: Rise Of An Empire) and Sheridan Smith (Quartet) and co-starring Ralph Brown (Stoker), and Russell Tovey (BBC’s Being Human), Tower Block is a pulse-pounding thriller that delivers gritty action and relentless suspense.”
Specs and bonus features are still being determined.
