WATCH: Jamie Bell Terrifies Cillian And Thandie Again In ‘Retreat’

Cillian Murphy and Jamie Bell in 'Retreat'

I tellya , that Billy Elliot was a LOT nicer when he was just a ballet-dancing miner’s son, wasn’t he?

This, friends, is another astonishingly tense trailer for the film Retreat, which stars Thandie Newton and Cillian Murphy as a nice couple who go off on holiday to a remote island.

Things go wrong when Jamie Bell turns up, claiming to be on the run from a global pandemic (a bit like in 28 Days Later). As you will see, he’s not dancing any more, unless jumping over Thandie’s axe counts:

Don’t have nightmares.
