Product Description

From the director of Kidulthood (Menhaj Huda) and starring actor, filmmaker, and record artist Adam Deacon (Anuvahood, Adulthood, Shank, Jack Falls), Comedown is urban British horror at its most terrifying and brutal.

In exchange for free drugs and cash, six friends agree to set up an aerial on the roof of abandoned tower block Mercy Point for local pirate radio station Locked FM. After successfully avoiding the authorities and breaking into the condemned building they begin an excessive night of drugs, booze and tunes. But Mercy Point isn’t as empty as they’d originally thought. There’s someone lurking in the darkness that calls this place home, someone determined to kill all trespassers…

Special Features:

• Behind the Scenes
• Exclusive extended interviews with Menhaj Huda, Adam Deacon, Jacob Anderson, Jessica Barden.

1.0 out of 5 stars The view from www.drunkenmovieramblings.co.uk 5 Sep 2013
Format:DVD
A group of Sahf Lahdan yoofs take on the seemingly easy job of setting up a mast for a Pirate radio station on the top floor of an abandoned tower block, soon though they realise that a resident maniac is picking them off, one by one....
My expectations were set to low for this 'Brit Urban horror' (very reminiscent of "Tower Block" and "Citadel") and they were 'reached' early on.The cast are a vile bunch of wannabe gangsters, unable to conduct or construct any civilised conversation, constantly bickering, arguing or threatening others, someone give the killer an Uzi so he can finish them all off a bit quicker.
Dreadful dialogue, one character hears a noise "What was that noise?", later she's startled again, "What the **** was that ?",she exclaims, zero thrills or chills, the killer looks like the Emperor from Star Wars, there's a painfully bad twist, and not even some nice nail gun action can save this sorry mess.

3.0 out of 5 stars IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE A PARTY 22 April 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This film starts out as a British gang movie and half way through suddenly becomes a slasher film.

A group of young adults agree to place a broadcasting antenna for a pirate radio broadcast (they still do that with the Internet?) on top of Mercy Point, an abandon apartment building taken over by rats and pigeons. They also decide to party with mind altering drugs. When the expecting Jemma (Sophie Stuckey) goes missing, her boyfriend Lloyd (Jacob Anderson) leads a search party with the expected knife/ nail gun slasher film results.

I watched the film not realizing the slasher aspect, which made it a surprise for me and slightly more enjoyable. The film description gives this aspect away, something you don't realize until half way through. I liked the setting and set up, although the slasher had no personality. There appears to have been some connection between the slasher and Jemma, although that was not known or developed. Likewise, we know nothing about the slasher until the end. It seems they set this film up for a sequel which will add interesting and intriguing aspects they opted to leave out of this one.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

1.0 out of 5 stars High-Rise Howler 23 Mar 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This is low budget Brit horror trash. Most of the action takes place in a derelict tower block, where a sinister figure targets a bunch of hideous inner city teens ("innit" and "bruv" etc). The fact that we're rooting for a salivating, homicidal, pigeon-fancying retard tells you all you need to know about how hateful the main characters are. With terrible dialogue, a recycled storyline and a nonsensical ending, "Comedown" adds nothing to a well-worn genre.

1.0 out of 5 stars Trash, and not in a good way. 15 April 2013
By JONESY
Format:DVD
Ist rule of horror films...... create some characters viewer will care about!!
If, as in this film, the main players are a bunch of chavvy violent moronic simpletons where does your sympathy lie?
Couldn't wait to see these revolting retards die. Wished their deaths could have been even more slow and horrific.
Award for this film.... D- Fail.

2.0 out of 5 stars What you looking at fam?... (spoilers) 15 Jan 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Six friends break into the tower block they lived in as kids, now deserted and condemned, to rig up a pirate radio station, and party.

When one of the group goes missing, her friends begin to search the dark interior of the tower and soon realise that they are not alone.

A resident psychopath lurks in the shadows and is hunting them down, taking them out, one-by-one....

What sounds like a good idea, is ruined by the awful script, and the equally awful dialect that the characters spout out every other minute.

There are so many troupes in this film, guy comes out of jail to do right, friends try and turn him back to the criminal ways he had, and the friend who is a bit mental, but really weak.

The cast are good, Deacon plays the same character he does in every other film, and it all ends up a bit Kidulthood meets I Know What You Did Last Summer.

It's intense in parts, the initial set up is great, but when the main protagonist is vexed because of pigeons, you know you cannot take this film seriously.

The action literally takes place on on corridor, and we are treated to scenes of the villain in his torture chamber, playing with his victims, another cliché in this type of genre.

deacon is the most vile character, hence he gets the most intense death scene.

The ending is too obvious, the boy who wants to change gets implied in the killings, and we are treated to a final scene with the killer...sequel time? This time, I very much doubt it.

It's okay, but nothing worth writing home about.
