The dilapidated suburbia of Edenstown casts a shadow over Tommy Cowley’s life. Trapped there by his agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children, he now finds himself terrorized by the same mysterious hooded gang…

A mostly-okay horror flick with a lot of potential that it fails to live up to. First of all, it's as if every single person was cast from a different corner of Ireland, Scotland, England, and the like - making the placement of the film very vague and thus damaging the thin socio-political commentary. Although, it almost works (unknowingly) as an anti-immigration piece, honestly. Passable acting, some okay scares.
Good drama/horror with some interesting ideas. Barnard who plays the main character does a good job in portraying the broken and downtrodden Tommy. The "feral children" are quite scary and violent but director Foy does not use them enough to really make them as memorable and frightening as they should have been. The locations and music does a good job conveying the urban despair. Worth a watch!
Una película que inicia bien a raíz de la atmósfera degradada y el vértigo que se proyecta desde la mirada desorbitada de su protagonista principal, pero que a medida que se va develando una de las causantes de su mal, va cayendo en un precipio que aborda la lógica y deja de lado lo que pudo ser un evento paranormal.
An uber-paranoia thriller that works very well as a social commentary on mental health and how it affects parent hood but can also be treated as just a scary and well paced horror film. I had been waiting to see this quite some time and though I was underwhelmed, I did find myself enjoying it more than being sour with it. Will need to be revisited.
