Director Will Jewell | 2020 | 92 mins | Thriller | UK | English
Official Selection – Fright Fest 2020
High in the rugged mountains, a disparate crew of builders begin renovating an opulent mansion belonging to Simon, the heir of an illustrious military family.
As Simon forces the workers to live in squalor and refuses to pay them, tensions begin to simmer. One by one the men snap, turning first on their boss and then on each other, building to a visceral crescendo of violence that ensures none of them will return home the same.
Part Coen Brothers, part BLUE RUIN, Will Jewell’s electrifying debut is a ferocious, wickedly twisted modern noir.
“CONCRETE PLANS IS A DARK, COEN-ESQUE THRILLER IN WHICH ONE BAD ACTION QUICKLY LEADS TO ANOTHER, AND EVERYONE GETS DRAWN INTO A DOWNWARD SPIRAL OF VENALITY AND VICIOUSNESS.”
“BRUTAL, BLOODY AND UNNERVING.”
– STARBURST MAGAZINE
“A STRONG, DARK, AND GRITTY HORROR.”
“ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING BRITISH THRILLERS IN YEARS.”
– THE HOLLYWOOD NEWS
“I HAVEN’T FELT THIS TENSE IN A POKER SCENE SINCE CASINO ROYALE OR LOCK STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS.”
– POP HORROR
“A REMARKABLY ACCOMPLISHED DEBUT FEATURE. THE WHOLE FILM IS GRITTY, UNCOMFORTABLE AND SUFFUSED WITH A GROWING SENSE OF MENACE AND UNEASE THAT PERFECTLY SUITS THE COLD AND REMOTE LOCATION, MILES AWAY FROM CIVILISATION.”
– STARBURST MAGAZINE
“WHILE THIS ISN’T AN EASY FILM TO WATCH, IT IS ONE THAT IS RELEVANT, WELL-ACTED, AND FILMED BRILLIANTLY.”
– HORROR BUZZ
