Thriller about four sadistic criminals who, after escaping during a transfer, take over a posh Manhattan apartment complex and start looting and terrorizing its occupants during New York City's famous 1977 blackout.
A short, timely docu-drama made by Channel 4 and exploring a 'what if?' week in Britain in the event of a massive power cut leaving the country without electricity. BLACKOUT cleverly mixes in footage of the London riots with newly-shot, 'found footage' style material following a diverse group of people as they struggle to cope in the wake of a mini-apocalypse.
I've always found films exploring the breakdown of society interesting and this low-fi outing is no exception. The lack of any big name or recognisable stars gives it a documentary feel, and the acting is generally realistic for the most part. There's plenty of incident to keep you watching, and although the plot lines are of the most basic variety, I found myself enjoying the thing regardless.
