The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Citadel (2012)

Starring: James Cosmo, Aneurin Barnard
Director: Ciran Foy


Premise:
A man watches his pregnant wife die at the hands of street kids and is unable to help her. He now must raise his newborn baby while battle a severe case of agoraphobia. The kids keep coming for him and the baby.

My Take:
I often enjoy movies which have an original premise and have more depth than they appear at first glance. This flick has both. The street kids aren't exactly what seem and the man's phobia battle creates a lot of nice friction. Plus there's James Cosmo chewing up scenery as a priest hell bent on aradicating the kids. Lots of tension here and it's most definitely worth watching.

Rating: So Good
