The Aggression Scale UK DVD and Blu-ray release
This is another of those crossovers into the horror genre that tend to sit so well with horror fans, like the remakes of I Spit on Your Grave and Mother's Day; not necessarily horror in the traditional sense, but bringing the tension, violence and gore that we so adore. The Aggression Scale is directed by Steven C. Miller (Scream Of The Banshee; Zombie/Automaton Transfusion), the man behind the soon-to-be-released (and screened at Frightfest 2012) suburban nightmare shocker Under The Bed and the highly anticipated reboot of the 1984 cult classic Silent Night, Deadly Night.
It is written by Ben Powell (Satanic), and the film stars Ryan Hartwig (Parks And Recreation; Cold Case), Fabianne Therese (John Dies At The End) and Derek Mears (Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides; Predators; Friday The 13th) and reunites Twins Peaks stars Ray Wise (Mad Men; X-Men: First Class; Reaper) and Dana Ashbrook (Crash; The Kill Point).
Released from prison on bail for 48 hours after being charged with murder, ruthless crime boss Reg Bellavance is planning on avoiding a life behind bars by skipping the country with his young son. But first he needs to lay his hands on the illegally gained stash of cash he had put aside to fund his departure. Bellavance places the task of finding the money in the hands of hitman Lloyd and his accomplices, instructing them to hunt down and kill anybody who could possibly have been involved in the money’s disappearance. Their bloody trail of murder and destruction eventually leads to the new home of Bill and Maggie Rutledge and their kids, Lauren and Owen. On paper, this particular hit should be the easiest and most rewarding of the lot. What Lloyd and his goons don’t know – but are soon to find out – is emotionally disturbed Owen has a secret history of violent behaviour that makes their exploits look like child’s play in comparison.
The Aggression Scale is release on UK DVD and Blu-ray by Anchor Bay on 3rd September 2012.
