First look at Comedown

First look at Comedown, the new teen urban-horror feature from Kidulthood director Menhaj Huda.

The young cast includes Jessica Barden, Jacob Anderson, Sophie Stuckey, Duane Henry, Calum MacNab and Adam Deacon  as six tearaway teenagers who break into an abandoned, condemned tower block to make mischief and party.

Mercy Point, a high-rise tower block conceived and built in the sixties, condemned in the nineties. Abandoned by all, it is now home to a brooding malevolence, and what resides within its empty floors is truly terrifying.
LLOYD (Jacob Anderson) a young man in his early 20′s, is facing the reality of fatherhood, determined to rise above the pervading knife culture and bleak environment he calls home. He’s back after time away in jail, reunited with the crew he left behind: GARY (Calum MacNab) – pyromaniac joker of the pack, JASON (Adam Deacon) – Lloyd’s Alpha male rival, COL (Duane Henry)– Jason’s slow-witted lackey with a crush on; KELLY (Jessica Barden) – boisterous and text obsessed, joined at the hip to; JEMMA (Sophie Stuckey) – Lloyd’s pregnant girlfriend.

Events take a terrifying twist when Jemma is snatched from the roof. Realising their friend has disappeared, yet at odds with each other, the frightened youths search the dark, eerily hollow interior of the tower. Doors bolted, stairways obstructed, lift now inoperable, they find themselves trapped in a hazardous, concrete labyrinth and when the pills kick in – the real terror begins. As the crew begin tripping out in the darkness, someone is exacting their own psychotic revenge, intent on ensuring the kids never come down alive.

A deranged tenant (played by Geoff Bell) living a solitary existence, is on a mission to eradicate what he sees as vermin invading his home. And just like rats the kids can run, they can hide, but no one knows this tower like this tenant...

Comedown is due for release later this year.
