    Great movie, Aneurin Barnard playing the role of an agoraphobic father did great! Definitely not the best actor ever but you could see the fear and accomplishment when he was simply trying to leave his house! The atmosphere is dark and has a unique touch to it! The end of the movie is pretty rough though, no suspense or anything I just stood there wondering : wait, it's over? But overall I recommend it for any fans of Psychological/Infection horror movie.

    It took me a while to get absorbed in this because I'm familiar with the area where this was filmed. Once I was into Citadel it was a bit slow but It's actually a nicely paced, moody horror that kept me interested throughout.

    The acting was pretty good all round, even the baby cried on cue, lol. James Cosmo (Braveheart, Sons of Anarchy) is the only person I recognised and his role as
    the heavy handed, ever swearing Priest seemed almost convincing but he was good. Aneurin Barnard played the most annoying of characters Tommy who I kept hoping would get killed in a particularly nasty way. Admittedly his acting was good it was just his role that I hated. The very attractive Wunmi Mosaku played the (almost) love interest well and I really hope I see more her in future.

    This was a nicely produced and well directed indie flik and all with minimum resources which is impressive. I hope Ciaran Foy, the writer/director does more features because this being his first he's done very, very well. Recommended.

    Score: 6.5/10

    The opening to this film was fantastic but unfortunately it goes downhill quite quickly. The acting is pretty poor and the suspense/horror was spoiled for me by too much being revealed too soon. It's such a shame because it has a lot going for it. Very atmospheric with some bleak locations that really add to the sense of foreboding. A decent plot at it's core with a very disturbing concept and some brilliantly intense scenes. But the plot takes a dissapointing direction early on. I switched it off eventually. Would love to see more original, low budget films like this though Expand

    Foy's talent lies in suggesting horror, not delivering it.

    [A] fresh, eerie twist on urban horror.

    Plenty of pungent ideas and a nice line in urban terror. The final product falls short of the best in Brit horror, though.
