Hoodie horror

Films inspired by the fear of "hoodies" and concerns over Broken Britain - the fear of the feral underclass bubbling up to the surface (and some more redeeming stories too).

Some of these films might not be classed as horror but they almost all contain violence.

This list is partly inspired by this article from The Guardian. See also this piece on the representation of black people in these current films.

See also:The British horror renaissance, of which these films form an interesting part. Attack the block, my list for tower block based action and horror. Someone else has a heartless britain list which crossesover with this one and expands on the theme.
