Director: Jeremy Saulnier
Starring: Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Patrick Stewart, Mark Webber
Synopsis: When a group of punk rock fans stumble across a brutal crime, they are trapped by a gang of Neo-Nazis who don’t intend to let them leave alive.
Notes: Jeremy Saulnier became a well-regarded name after his crowd-funded feature film debut Blue Ruin stole lots of press and praise for its portrayal of amateur vengeance and gritty violence. It did so well for him that now he’s been given a talented cast and an even bloodier story with which to get his hands dirty. His tactic of taking average people and giving them everyday objects to defend themselves with is something he has done well with in the past, and it appears to be a very promising pursuit here too.
