Football meets British horror in 'Kick'!

I've come across a number of new titles this week but here's one that stands out because it's (a) different and (b) topical. With less than 24 hours to go before the World Cup starts, I've come across Kick, a new British horror film about football.

My initial concerns that this might just be yet another sub-Rise of the Footsoldier violent thug picture dissipated as I watched the terrific trailer. Basically, two football fans bribe their way into a Premier League stadium but then get trapped inside with a psycho. Lots of blood and body bits sliced off in this entry into the sport/horror mash-up genre.

Starring Rik Young (Beowulf, Voodoo Moon), Kellie Shirley (Whacked, The Sick House, EastEnders), Daniel Bayle, Richard Strange (Harry Potter 7, Inkheart), Nicola Posener (Axed) and Simone Kaye (Dead of the Nite), the film is written and directed by Marcus Warren.

I can't wait to see this one. Find out more at, Facebook or Twitter

  1. I haven’t heard of the British movie, but there’s a Hindi action-thriller romantic comedy by the same name that is not a football movie by a long shot. It was also released in 2014.
