One of the films I was most impressed with at last year’s Film4 Frightfest in London is Lawrence Gough’s claustrophobic creature feature Salvage (review here). Finally the flick will be slamming in with a limited UK theatrical release (along with Sky Box Office, iTunes, FilmFlex, and LOVEFilM) on March 19th. A few days later, on the 22nd, it will appear on retail shelves on DVD — all courtesy of Revolver Entertainment.
It’s Christmas Eve, and a quiet cul-de-sac is suddenly plunged into a world of violence, terror, and paranoia when a group of heavily armed military personnel storms the area, sealing off the close and ordering the residents at gunpoint to retreat inside their homes. Unsure if this is the first sign of a terrorist attack, or something worse, one local single mother, Beth (Neve Mcintosh), finds it in herself to fight to save her estranged daughter, Jodie (Linzey Cocker), who is visiting her for the holiday but is now stranded across the street in a neighbour’s house. However, with growing dread, the trapped residents soon discover that the imminent threat is far more monstrous than any of them could possibly imagine. Only one thing is certain … survival is no longer guaranteed.
The disc’s special features include audio commentary by director Lawrence Gough, writer Colin O’Donnell, actor Shaun Dooley, and associate producer Alan Pattison; on-set cast and crew interviews; and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
Check out the box art and trailer below. According to a report earlier this month from Fangoria, you Yanks can expect a Stateside release during the summer on July 6th.
