Citadel

27, marzo 2012

Basándose en su propia experiencia con la violencia y la agarofobia, Ciaran Foy dirige Citadel (2012), una película sobre un chico que, luego de ser atacado por un grupo de pandilleros y quedar severamente traumado, deberá enfrentarse nuevamente a ellos, pues le quieren robar a su pequeña hija. Para vencer sus traumas, él deberá internarse en las calles de Citadel, un barrio peligroso de la ciudad en que vive. La extrema violencia de la cinta hizo que esta cinta fuera seleccionada para las funciones de medianoche del festival. (texto: Morbido Fest). In my late teens I was beaten with a hammer and had a dirty syringe held to my throat by a gang of kids who were no older than 13 or 14 years old. The scariest thing about it for me was that they didn’t want anything. They didn’t take anything. There was absolutely no provocation for what happened. But they left me with a psychological scar and a trauma which eventually became agoraphobia.  In terms of directly influencing Citadel, I’m a massive fan of Adrian Lyne’s Jacob’s Ladder. It gets under your skin and stays with you after. It’s not just cheap scares. I’m also a big fan of Cronenberg, particularly The Brood. In terms of generic horror antagonists, so many movies have zombies and vampires and werewolves, but feral kids creep me out. So the idea of that in The Brood certainly creeped me out. Also Chris Cunningham’s videos for Aphex Twin.
