Anchor Bay Films has acquired Steven C. Miller’s intense thriller “The Aggression Scale” for DVD and Blu-ray, and has set the film for a May 29, 2012 release. The movie is coming off a well-received screening at SXSW last month, and 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!”
Sounds like fun?
