One of the surprise hits of the summer and one of the best-reviewed films of the year is Joe Cornish’s creature-feature Attack the Block. Each week the film has slowly expanded to more and more cities. For those living in the hometown of Destroy the Brain, St. Louis, the film just opened in a few theaters here this past Friday. To read my positive review of the film, click HERE. Trust me . . . if it’s playing in your city now, head out to your theater this second. For those who haven’t been lucky enough to have the film open in their city, breathe a sigh of relief. You won’t have to wait too long to catch the film on DVD and Blu-ray. Hi-Def Digest is reporting that Attack the Block will hit stores October 25. Just in time for Halloween! I highly recommend a double feature with this and Monster Squad for your Halloween entertainment. No special features and cover-art have been released as of yet. Infusing just the right amount of humor and action in this tale of monsters-running -a muck in a South London suburb, Attack the Block is a must-own film when it gets released next month.
