ATTACK THE BLOCK (R)
SCREEN GEMS (2011)
Starring: Jodie Whittaker, John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Leeon Jones, Nick Frost & more.
ATTACK THE BLOCK is a throwback to the 80's styled Sci-Fi Horror genre. A group of kids in a
gang from the streets of South London go around terrorizing the neighborhood and everyone fears
them. They soon become the heroes of the neighbor after they stand up to an alien invasion. Some
crazy alien creatures start falling from the sky and viciously attack anyone they can get their teeth into.
The creatures are a mixture between ape and dog like with no eyes and big glow in the dark teeth.
They are extremely violent and devour every living person in their way. The gang of teen thugs decide
to stand up and protect their home turf. They use what ever they can as weapons and go after the
creatures. They team up with a woman that they earlier attacked in the film along with Nick Frost
(SHAUN OF THE DEAD) who is a drug dealer in the neighborhood. This was a very cool film that
reminded me of the movies CRITTERS, GREMLINS & NIGHT OF THE COMET all combined,
but with a better story, acting, special effects and a lot cooler looking aliens. If your a fan of British
Horror, Sci-Fi & Comedy then you will love this film!
