Two more clips from Steven C. Miller’s The Aggression Scale have landed in our laps, and we’ve got every trick and trap primed and ready to snap. Honestly? We almost wish these two never came up. They’re not spoilerish, but they do clue you in on the unexpected direction the film takes.
From the Press Release
Anchor Bay Films is proud to announce the May 29, 2012, release of The Aggression Scale on Blu-ray™ and DVD. Coming off a successful buzz-creating midnight showing at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival, The Aggression Scale is a unique take on the home invasion thriller with two teenagers confronting some heavily armed bad guys who are looking for stolen cash, leading to a bloody battle of wits and will. Directed by Steven C. Miller (Scream of the Banshee), the film stars Dana Ashbrook (“Twin Peaks”), Derek Mears (Friday the 13th, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) and Ray Wise (“Twin Peaks,” “Reaper”).
When out-on-bail mob boss Bellavance (Wise) discovers that $500,000 of his money is missing, he sends four hardcore hit men (including Ashbrook and Mears) to send a “loud and messy” message to the suspected thieves’ families. But when the killers invade the Rutledge home, they’ll meet the household’s emotionally disturbed young son, Owen (Ryan Hartwig). Owen has a history of violent behavior, knows how to make lethal booby-traps, and is about to teach these thugs some deadly lessons in extreme vengeance. Fabianne Therese co-stars in the savage thriller that IndieWire called “like Home Alone with more death!”
Webster’s dictionary defines “The Aggression Scale” as the frequency of overt aggressive behaviors in children that may result in physical or psychological injury to others, but The Aggression Scale here isn’t scientific. It’s a visceral reaction from two unusual teenagers whose most vicious instincts are unleashed in order to protect themselves and their home. Disturbing, dark, and unforgettable, The Aggression Scale is a pulse-pounding ride that will leave you in a sweat.
The Aggression Scale Blu-ray™ and DVD include “The Making of The Aggression Scale” featurette. SRP is $24.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $22.98 for the DVD.
