Exclusive: F Poster
Boyz 'n' the hoodie

09 September 2010  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

If you're concerned by the state of Britain's education system, horror/thriller F is probably not the movie to allay your fears. Acclaimed at FrightFest, it's set in a cavernous secondary school invaded by faceless hoodies. And as you can see from its gritty, blood-splatted quad poster, they're not exactly intent on extra maths.

Jaded and alcoholic, teacher Robert Anderson (David Schofield) finds himself stranded in the echoing corridors of his school and faced with a hoodie invasion. To make matters worse, his resentful daughter is stuck on the school grounds with him, a John Carpenter-esque premise with huge potential.


Think Eden Lake-meets-Grange Hill, with forked sausages replaced by dirty great spanners. It's directed by Johannes Robert, a filmmaker described as "the man to rejuvenate the twisted scrub of British horror" by Empire's own Kim Newman, a man who can spot a twisted horror scrub from a million paces. You can judge for yourself, though, when F is released on September 17.
