Exclusive: Images from the Irish killer-kids flick Citadel

The Irish thriller CITADEL is an interesting entry into the "evil children" genre; it functions almost more as a drama with terrifying situations than an actual horror movie. Should be very interesting to see what people think of it. While it doesn't hit the states until November (our favorable review will be online right beforehand), we've got three exclusive images from the film to get you prepped for these creepy little buggers.

Directed by Ciaran Foy, CITADEL goes like this: Tommy Cowley (Aneurin Barnard) lives a quiet life in a decaying apartment complex with his highly pregnant wife. The couple is attacked one day by a group of hooded young thugs, and after a shocking act of violence, Tommy is left to raise his newborn daughter alone. So shaken by the events that he’s developed extreme agoraphobia, Tommy alternates days hiding out indoors in his new flat from imagined threats and intense therapy sessions aimed at bringing him back to normalcy.

When the same hooded gang, seemingly intent on kidnapping his daughter, begins terrorizing his life again, he’s torn between his paralyzing fear and protective parental instinct. With the help of a vigilante priest who has uncovered the genesis of this ruthless, potentially supernatural gang, Tommy must overcome his fears and venture into the heart of the abandoned tower block known as the CITADEL to save his family.

CITADEL will be opening in select theaters beginning November 9th. Click on the images to see them bigger.

Extra Tidbit: If I were to compare CITADEL to a movie right off the top of my head, it would be THE BROOD.
