Attack the Block 2011 ★★★★★

Oh man, I LOVED THIS TOO. I didn’t know much going in, but I didn’t have quite the same dread in my stomach because I was too busy having fun and loving it. I was a bit nervous about seeing a movie that could be scary in the theatre, because I scream a lot, but I’m so glad I did. (I still screamed out loud several times.) It was fresh and unexpected and didn’t hold back. Too often, genre films that want to transcend their genre seem to work from a checklist – subvert, subvert, subvert. This movie was fresh in that it didn’t work backwards from what to avoid – it just went and did its own thing, perfectly.
