Attack the Block

de Joe Cornish



From the creators of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, comes this zany alien movie that has been all the rage in the United Kingdom. A group of teenage punks mug a nurse who they wind up leaving alone when they see a weird object plummeting down towards a car. When it reaches the vehicle, the gang sees that what has landed there is a strange creature. Neighborhood kids prepared to fight off an invasion, incredibly fresh performances and more than one touch of humor round off this film that was born to be labeled a cult film.
