Action and Adventure, Comedy, Science Fiction and Fantasy




A bunch (or gang, as they would see it) of South London teenagers who reckon they're fairly tough find their tower block under attack from deadly aliens, in this fast, sharp and funny sci-fi horror film. It was directed by Joe Cornish of Adam & Joe fame, but don’t expect a film played just for laughs - there's lots of inventive action and plenty of scares, too, along with some great dialogue. The film makes excellent use of the tower block setting and it’s good for a change to see a film in which the kids in hoodies are the heroes.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
