The UK Trailer for Tower Block Has Arrived

Fresh off its Film4 FrightFest premiere and bound for the U.S. film festival scene is Tower Block, a new UK thriller from Severance scribe James Moran.  IGN UK debuted a trailer, you’ll find it inside.

A quick glance at some of the reactions to the FrightFest screening yields a mostly positive response.  Our pals at Bleeding Cool seem to have dug it as well.  Expect our own review as we near Fantastic Fest.

Synopsis: Hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil. When Jimmy is brutally murdered by two hooded figures, Becky, Kurtis, Neville and the other residents of the Serenity House tower block are witnesses to the killing but, fearing retribution, are too scared to give detectives any information and the police investigation is going nowhere.

Fantastic Fest 2012: Another Look at Tower Block, New Photos

Tower Block made Shock headlines just before Comic-Con hit and I’m afraid that a lot of you missed out on our official announcment regarding this UK thriller.  ‘Tis cool, however, this title is back in the news because it has become a selection of Fantastic Fest – the upcoming event hitting Austin, Texas in September.

Directed by James Nunn and Ronnie Thompson, and scripted by James Moran (Severance), the film concerns a sniper who targets a tenement and begins picking off the residents who must set aside their differences to survive the various traps the killer has set up for them.
