Horror Trunk Review: The many hoods of horror.
7 March 2013 | by BonhamktSee all my reviews

Recently, 'Hoodie' horrors have been emerging from the British horror scene, focusing on young generations, and their violent exploits. Citadel is the story of a man who helplessly watches a group of youths attack his pregnant wife.

Mostof the violence is narrated off-screen; instead the action is shown through shadows, reflections, and sounds. The shots are compiled well, a particular favourite set in the cemetery.

Citadel is not as violent and shocking as its predecessors. Through the choice of a small cast,and limited sets, it offers a narrative focused on personalising the story.I would recommend as a thoughtful look into a usually over-violent sub-genre.
