The Horseman Gets Limited Theatrical Release

Prepare to have your head pummeled with a nice big slab of retribution, Aussie style, as Steven Kastrissios’ grim and brutal The Horseman (review here) will be beating its way to a limited theatrical release here in the States.

Screen Media Ventures announced today that The Horseman will be in theatres on June 15th. Check out the film’s insane opening below, and look for more soon!

Action-packed, multi-award winning Australian thriller The Horseman features a range of powerhouse performances in an unflinching study of grief and retribution. Explore the dark fantasies we all dream up when Christian (Peter Marshall) is sent a horrifying pornographic video featuring his recently deceased daughter. Setting out to find answers, he soon spirals into a world of violence and recklessness as he follows the links through the industry with his unique methods of brutal questioning.

Driving through north Queensland to locate the final suspect, he reluctantly picks up Alice (Caroline Marohasy), an awkward young runaway, and an unlikely bond develops. But as the crime is pieced together, an ugly truth is revealed that leads everyone down a dangerous path.

    I really want to see this, but thanks for the warning. I’ll try not to get too excited.

    P.S. Definitely right, Harry Brown is a great guy flick.

    Keep expectations in check. I was majorly stoked on seeing it. Then…I saw it. It’s HOSTEL meets Paul Schrader’s HARDCORE (but kind of watered down)

    HARRY BROWN with Michael Caine, now there’s a well crafted revenge flick. :)

      The plot sounds almost exactly like Hardcore just without Los Angeles or Calvinists.

  • Masked Slasher

    Really want to see this!
