In NY theaters November 9th and LA theaters November 16th from Cinedigm Entertainment Group and New Video is the Irish home invasion horror Citadel (review), about a man protecting himself (and his baby) from group of feral children. The Irish/UK co-production is directed by hot new writer-director Ciarán Foy.
I recently hopped on the phone with Foy and we talked about his approach to the film’s look, the idea for the feral children and the all too real trauma that inspired him to write the film in the first place.
In the film, “The dilapidated suburbia of Edenstown casts a shadow over Tommy Cowley’s life. Trapped there by his agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children, he now finds himself terrorized by the same mysterious hooded gang, who seem intent on taking his baby daughter. Torn between the help of an understanding nurse and a vigilante priest, he discovers that to be free of his fears, he must finally face the demons of his past and enter the one place that he fears the most…the abandoned tower block known as the CITADEL.”
