Feral boys in the hoodies

Tommy (Aneurin Barnard) is helpless as his pregnant wife (Amy Shiels) is attacked by a gang of hoodlums. This isn't any ordinary gang, but one that apparently kidnaps children and can smell fear, but "can't see you." He believes they are after his child and is forced to face his fears and the killer children in the "Citadel" an abandoned apartment high rise. He is aided by a priest (James Cosmo) and a blind boy named Danny (Jake Wilson).

At some point in time I had to question if the creatures were real or Tommy's imagination. In one scene they break out a car window, then as they drive to another location, it is fixed. So I had to question if this was a plot point meaning the children were imaginary or just a sloppy production.

The film is all about Tommy's fear and did little to frighten me. It is a film you can take a nap in the middle of it, wake up and know what is going on. The actors did a fine job, I just found the film rather slow.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

Decent horror n excellent acting by the lead.

I saw this on a rented DVD in 2013. The movie was not bad. It has a sort of atmosphere which pulls you into the story. Some scenes were disturbing and kind of twisted. Found it to b scary and chilling, not like most horror films nowadays, where the scares are predictable and you can pretty much guess what will happen. The visualisation of the desolate slum-land is brilliantly created. The abandoned tower block was creepy. Tim Fleming's restless cinematography further adds to the picture's overall unsettling impact. The demons/stalkers are depicted as a genuinely menacing and frightening. Kinda supernatural/genetic mutations. The movie is extremely brooding n claustrophobic. There is a sense of dread, paranoia, surrealism, loneliness n helplessness. The film's exploration of the lead character's agoraphobia is powerful without being overpowering. The fears the lead character has are realistic. Brilliant acting from Aneurin Barnard. He looked like a person who is going thru a trauma. There is this feeling in this film that the lead character is completely alone. There is no help coming n he will have to fend for himself. Only one thing i disliked in this film was the twist in the end. Well its not predictable but i dint like it. The director was successful in creating tension by putting a baby in jeopardy. The priest in this movie looked like Brian Cox.

What a garbage

I can't believe that some people gave this trash more than 1 star,what is this? where is the story?.Really if there is a degree under zero this film deserve it.This is a vacant story, simply and directly told by Irish writer-director Ciaran Foy. He doesn't try to explain too much, he doesn't depend on special effects and stays just this side of the unbelievable. As Tommy, Aneurin Barnard is very effective. He trembles and sweats with fear, he would seem paranoid if it didn't seem the "demons" weren't really there, and if they hadn't really killed his wife.

The priest enlists Tommy in a scheme to destroy the Citadel and send the demons back to the flames of hell Hahhhhhhhhhh Where are these demons? and like the trash movies some things happen ad elevator did not open as usual. Tis film is very boring,no blot and also no acting
