The Raid Trailer

The RaidOkay so The Raid is not technically horror but having already received its UK premiere at the Frightfest Glasgow Film Festival we are going to cover it anyway and once you’ve seen high octane, blood splattering, literally break neck action in the trailer below I’m sure you’ll let us off.

Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums stands an impenetrable apartment block; a safe house for the city’s most dangerous killers and gangsters and considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite SWAT team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it and fight their way through the deadliest to survive their mission.

Winner of the 2011 Midnight Madness People’s Choice Audience Award at the Toronto Film Festival, The Raid stars the newest martial arts sensation, Iko Uwais, was written and directed by Welsh man Gareth Evans and features a kick ass score by Mike Shinoda.
