One film that made a splash over at this year’s European Film Market was Patrick Hughes’ bloody revenge thriller Red Hill. So the question beckons … when will we see it here?
According to Screen Daily the flick walked away with UK distribution as well as several offers for Germany and Spain. Hopefully the fact that HBO’s “True Blood” star Ryan Kwanten is an integral part of the film will fan the flames for some US distro. Let’s hope.
When a young police officer, Constable Shane Cooper, relocates to the small high-country town of Red Hill with his pregnant wife, he does so in the hope of starting a new family. But when news of a prison break in the city sends the local law enforcement officers into a panic, Shane’s first day on duty quickly goes from bad to worse.
Enter Jimmy Conway, a convicted murderer serving life behind bars, who returns to the isolated outpost seeking revenge. Now caught in the middle of what quickly becomes a horrifying blood bath, Shane will be forced to take the law into his own hands if he is to survive. A tight action/thriller, Red Hill unfolds over the course of a single day. Told with explosive action and chilling violence, the story is a modern-day Western set in high-country Australia.
