At 85 minutes this little puppy motors through its story with genuine laughs and thrills. The small budget is amply compensated by a lively script and invested performances in this crowd pleaser from Joe Cornish. It’s no wonder the film was a hit with audiences and critics everywhere it played.
It reminded me so much of CRITTERS (1986), all fond memories, with is teenage resilience and winning comedy.
It’s really well shot, tightly edited and thoroughly entertaining… And there’s nice smatterings of gore to keep horror fans happy.
ATTACK THE BLOCK is a big big WIN!
