Citadel Reviews

Flick Filosopher

A familiar story of sinister creature frights and psychological horror gets a little boost from a gloomy mood of urban decay and isolation.

The Skinny

The film's pretty repugnant if taken as social commentary, but plays with contemporary fears and anxieties incredibly effectively.

Foy's talent lies in suggesting horror, not delivering it.

Tim Evans
Sky Movies

A lean and mean horror set in a shattered city that is both all-to-recognisable as broken Britain while also feeling totally alien.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Despite its defiantly un-PC 'fear-a-hoodie' message, the film nails its urban setting, filling every frame with a richly sustained sense of despair, decay and dread.

Tara Brady
Irish Times

Drawing from his own experiences of agoraphobia following a brutal mugging, Foy has taken the emerging genre of "hoodie horror" and pushed it in novel and disturbing directions.

A gritty sister to Philip Ridley's Heartless, this is similarly flawed but full of flair.

This is a basic story, simply and directly told by Irish writer-director Ciaran Foy.

Writer-director Ciaran Foy knows his job, even if he's never done it before -- this is his feature debut -- and he handles it well.

A compelling inner city nightmare, with the supernatural elements barely masking a very real scenario.

A bare-bones man-against-his-worst-fears white knuckler, shot through deep, menacing shadows.

[Aneurin Barnard] gives one of the most compelling and powerful performances I've seen this year.

Has an atavistic pulse, evoking a decaying society where elevators fail and bus drivers cower behind mesh grills.

Just tense enough for just long enough to keep potentially nagging disbelief at bay.

Citadel is stripped down and no-nonsense, fixating on Tommy's emotional and psychological struggles with an intensity that's harrowing.

Maitland McDonagh
Film Journal International

This taut thriller wrings maximum suspense from all-too ordinary, real-life terrors while gradually edging into full-blown horror territory.

Film School Rejects

Citadel is a solid enough horror thriller anchored by a strong lead performance and an earnest heart. The second and third acts could have used a polish to punch up some otherwise dull happenings, but the film remains another fine genre offering.
