Attack the Block follows an unlucky young woman and and a gang of tough inner-city kids who make an unlikely alliance to try to defend their turf against an invasion of savage alien creatures, turning a South London apartment complex into a war-zone. Written by
I thought this movie was scary and hilarious at the same time, actually creepy enough to make me jump several times while at the same time spoofing horror movies. The main characters are better developed and deeper than typical "spoofs" making this a good movie as well as fun. Very interesting and surprisingly intellectual twist at the end. It's filled with hilarious one-liners that I'll remember for awhile. On a side note, I am grateful for closed-captioning: as an American, I would've missed a lot of the dialog and humor if I hadn't been able to read along; silly as it seems, British English can sound as foreign as a foreign language!
