Kidulthood director Menhaj Huda returns with another look at the UK capital’s delinquent urban youth, only to take a different direction - although not entirely - with suspenseful shocker, Comedown. Thn first caught an early screening during October’s GrimmFest event in Manchester (read our review Here), and can safely say it adds nothing new to the tried and tested teen slasher formula other than a welcome change of location and some impressive gore. Not being a Hippoty-Hop fan, the soundtrack also got on my tits as did British bell-end Adam Deacon!
The film follows recently-released toe-rag Lloyd (Jacob Anderson) and his drug and alcohol-binging mates’ attempts at putting a pirate radio aerial on top of a condemned London tower block – only to find a mysterious psychopath lurking in the shadows. Here we have the first official trailer for the British thriller slated for release on DVD and Blu-ray »

Get ready for the Queen of Thorns Olenna Tyrell, played by veteran English actress Diana Rigg. Thomas Brodie-Sangster also joins the show as Jojen Reed, the younger brother of Meera Reed and eldest son and heir of Lord Howland Reed of Greywater Watch.

Kidulthood director Menhaj Huda is back on familiar ground as his latest effort begins as the ever now tiresome ‘urban yoof’ drama before descending into the even more familiar slasher flick territory. You can name check pretty much all those traits expected to feature throughout this film – recently-released youngster brought up on bad estate wants to go straight, a pregnant girlfriend wanting him to do so, annoying ‘friends »

Fright Night 3D (DVD/Blu-ray)

After high school senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) makes the connection between Jerry’s suspicious activity and a steadily rising body count, he vows to end the reign of terror next door. But he can’t do it alone. His only hope is Las Vegas magician/vampire-slayer Peter Vincent (David Tennant). Together, »
Here is the beauty of the horror genre. Filmmakers challenge themselves to do things differently. We've seen, for example, movies made with a zero dollar budget or taken in a single shot. You never see that in other genres. You don't see anybody trying to find a unique way to shoot a buddy comedy. Only in horror do you get these unique approaches to filmmaking. And we've got a real winner for you with The Swarm.
Directed by Tom Harper, who also shares writing credit with Geoff Bussetil and Daniel Kaluuva, The Swarm is an alien invasion film based in London, shot entirely on five Xperia Arc S phones. That's right, folks, this movie was shot on mobile telephones.
Amazing, I know. Harper is an up-and-coming British director who absolutely nailed this project. For a film that was shot in two days on cell phones, it's awesome.
The film features Jacob Anderson, »
