Default Christmas Comp #2 - The Aggression Scale - FINISHED

Hello again everyone,

It's time for the 2nd Christmas comp of the year! Horray! This prize is a cracker - it's a fantastic film that you will love. Think adult version of Home Alone and you're half way there...

The Aggression Scale



“Damn near perfect.” – BeyondHollywood.com.

Home Alone” meets “First Blood” as two teen siblings take on a group of vicious hitmen in this tense and brutal home invasion thriller from up-and-coming genre director Steven C. Miller.

Directed by Steven C. Miller (Scream Of The Banshee; Zombie Transfusion), the man behind the soon-to-be-released suburban nightmare shocker “Under The Bed” and the highly anticipated reboot of the 1984 cult classic “Silent Night, Deadly Night”.

Written by Ben Powell (Satanic), 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.

If, like us, you’ve ever wondered what “Home Alone” would have been like if it had been a gritty, violent thriller instead of a cutesy, slapstick comedy then ‘The Aggression Scale’ is just the film for you. There’s still plenty of black humour here, but the tension, action and bloodletting is seriously hardcore, thanks in no small part to the presence of one of cinema’s most original anti-heroes in the form of young Owen Rutledge. And, just when you think the movie is over, director Steven C. Miller delivers a fantastic head-rush of a final scene that will have genre fans begging for more.

“Clever, sleazy and breezy crime thriller… Home Alone meets Rambo… one hell of a fun flick.” – Dread Central.

TO WIN....

Simply answer the following question:

2012 saw a brand new section added to the forum dedicated to the very best of television, but which cult TV show is this strange family from?




Slightly harder than yesterday's. Think you know the answer? Then PM (Private Message) me before midnight and you'll be entered into a random draw. One lucky winner will be selected just before the start of tomorrow's comp.

Good luck!

Kyle

Wow Kyle, that's tough. A TV show about dinosaurs? I can't imagine what they might have called it.

I would enter, but having already seen the film, and thought it was unimpressive, I won't bother.

The core idea was decent enough, but the film just seemed to lack something. I think it could've been harder edged and I didn't find the young protagonist very believable, certainly not scary or particularly aggressive. There's kids round here who are tougher and more aggressive than that kid.

But anyway, back to the Comp...
