TOWER BLOCK (2013).
One tower block. Fifteen tenants. One sniper.
Someone is picking off the last remaining occupants of a tower block, using a high powered, silenced rifle. Nobody else has heard the shots, and no help is coming. If the terrified victims can’t figure out how to escape, they’re all going to be killed, one by one.
With career-defining performances from Sheridan Smith, Jack O’Connell, Russell Tovey, Kano and Ralph Brown, this fantastically gripping British thriller is a movie not to be missed.
This British found-footage horror movie has made real waves on the international film festival circuit and now gets a well deserved UK release on the 28th January. Grimm Up North present this special pre release screening.
Set in a remote village which has been haunted by a local legend for centuries. One day a group of friends decide to explore the folklore, however they are soon presented with grave and terrifying consequences.
