Ever wondered how different the classic John Hughes film Home Alone would have been had Kevin McAllister swapped his toy cars for a sawn off shotgun? Well, it’s with utter fanboy curiosity that we can announce the violent indie thriller The Aggression Scale – coming out on DVD and Blu-ray from Anchor Bay on 3rd September.
Gone is the cutesy Christmas soundtrack! Out with the slapstick sticky bandits! Ain’t nobody receiving comedy irons to the face here! This ain’t no child’s play! This is a matter of survival as mini-Rambo himself Owen Rutledge takes on a posse of hit men, despatched to terrorize his family for an outstanding debt. Yet, all is not what it seems… It turns out Owen has a emotionally disturbed background in violent behaviour which he sure as heck isn’t about to give up on any time soon!
From rising genre director Steven C. Miller, the man behind the highly anticipated reboot of the 1984 cult classic, Silent Night, Deadly Night, and starring Derek Mears (Predators; Friday The 13th) and reuniting ‘Twin Peaks’ stars Ray Wise (Mad Men; X-Men: First Class) and Dana Ashbrook (Crash; The Kill Point), The Aggression Scale asks the question: How far would you go if your life depended on it?
