Film review: Comedown
Director: Menhaj Huda
Starring: Adam Deacon, Sophie Stuckey, Duane Henry, Calum McNab
There is something too familiar about this low-budget British horror film, which adapts a creaky old plot into a modern urban setting. A group of London teenagers breaks into an abandoned tower block to set up a pirate radio station, but a shadowy stranger is already in residence and reacts badly to this intrusion. The stranger starts killing off the youths one by one. A good slasher film is not about originality or realism, of course, but about execution – no pun intended. As such, director Menhaj Huda does a decent job with limited ingredients. But there is nothing in this pulpy, formulaic nerve-jangler that horror fans will not have seen countless times before.
