Why did I enjoy this?By TheWatchman (749 reviews) from Suburbia , 21 Mar 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]I watch a lot of horror/slasher films and most of them I get about half way through before I turn off. Comedown had absolutely nothing new to add to the genre and the characters were pretty unlikeable, yet I found I managed to sit through the whole thing without actually turning it off. A bunch of pretty horrible teenagers break into a condemned London tower block in order to set up a pirate radio station. However, theres the obligatory psycho happens to already be living there. And, unsurprisingly, he doesnt take too kindly to their intrusion. What follows is the typical hunt em and kill em scenario. Although the killer looks like hes already starred in I Know What You Did Last Summer, hes played by Geoff Bell, an actor who always puts in a good performance (even if he does only just squeak in this case!). The rest of the cast are basically killer-fodder. You wont find yourself shedding too many tears when they start getting hacked to death. One girl is pregnant and her boyfriend is a reformed convict, so I think were supposed to root for them. Jessica Barden, who plays a particularly chavvy young lady, actually puts in a pretty good performance. Theres nothing new here and what little budget the film had seems to have been wasted on using computers to add extra blood in. Personally, Id rather theyd have simply squirted a couple of bottles of tomato ketchup here and there, as the computer effects look a little bit too fake. Like I say, nothing too new here, but strangely watchable and quite good fun in its genre.

good but slow startBy azandgillcolchester (23 reviews) from colchester essex uk , 29 Jun 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHidelow budget prob but i think this was a great film bit of a poor start otherwise good film set in a rundown building as they put it which the outside is cg still it looks stupid ending cos main person gets done for the murders and police take forever to turn now if it reality they turn up faster to abandoned 999 calls and they would of had a mobile signal in a hire rise block still i enjoyed i give it 4 stars

Mediocre throughoutBy a customer , 18 Jun 2013Low budget British film but the actors did an alright job. The storyline was like any other horror but unfortunately it had no twist. If you liked adulthood/kidulthood/attack the block then I'd give this one a watch.
not bad :)By madmummaria78 (168 reviews) , 17 May 2013now this film was alright, acting was good and I liked the storyline, very dark and creepy ! deffo worth a watch :)
its allright in'it!.Top film really is.By a customer , 14 May 2013Terrific film. Might start a little slow,but not much. Once it gets going,its a very gripping,good horror,that had me on edge of seat. Some elements of Saw and the killer seems quite innovative and clever,and its not just a slasher movie. One small niggle,is its the bloke out of Green Street and he says nothing all film,so could easily have cast someone else,other than that,acting is good,action is great and i thoroughly enjoyed it blood!lol
Pretty Good if you get over the first half hour . . .By ZenZii (192 reviews) from Preston , 09 May 2013One teen gang horror set in a deserted tower block. The place is not empty and whoever is there does not like the intrusion. Game of cat and mouse but exciting i have to say, after the first half hour it picked up and i watched it all the way through and it wasn't bad. x x x
