Horror
This is a crazy little movie about a young man named Tommy who, when moving out of a crumbling tenement, sees his pregnant wife attacked by strange kids dressed in hoodies. The wife dies shortly after giving birth, leaving Tommy to raise the child while trying to conquer his newfound fear of the outdoors. Director Ciaran Foy is making a bizarre social statement here (These kids today are a demonic, criminal brood!) while also suggesting everything could be going on in Tommy’s head. While it is a bit confusing, it’s also effectively creepy, with Aneurin Barnard doing a damn fine job as the frightened Tommy. I especially liked James Cosmo as a foul-mouthed preacher who wants to put an end to the marauding, demonic youths. In addition to being a decent horror offering, it actually works as dark satire. This is Foy’s debut; looking forward to more stuff from this guy.
