Quick Review: Citadel (2012)
Before we get into our end of the year awards lists, let's take a few minutes to at least offer a paragraph or two on some of the movies that we never got around to writing about, and that deserve to have a few words spoken about them. 

Citadel is one of those flicks that left us feeling unsure about whether we liked it or  not. On one hand, it's a pretty interesting concept that's executed fairly well, while on the other, the main character whined and winged so much, that it was really hard for us to care about what happened to his ass.

The movie centers around and guy who watches a gang of creepy little Hoodie kids kill his wife, and his descent into agoraphobia thereafter. He's left to take care of his infant daughter on his own, which is all well and good (despite his petrifying fear of leaving his house), until the same gang of creepy kids show up again, hell bent on taking his daughter away from him.

Sorry, we're not home.
Citadel has its moments, and manages to deliver a decent amount of tension, but it honestly felt a bit like a modern-day take on The Brood, with a British twist. The Demonic aspect of the Hoodies was interesting, as it's always fairly creepy watching a bunch of creepy kids running around and acting all creepy.

No one will take his baby!
Citadel was decent enough, but as I said before, the winging of the agoraphobic lead left us mostly cold. Still, we're glad we saw it. Once.
