After impressing at Frightfest
last year, director Patrick Hughes' modern day revenge western is arriving in UK cinemas on 13th May with a DVD and Blu-ray release slated for 30th May.
Featuring a bold and surprisingly sympathetic performance from Ryan Kwanten, and backed up by support from a grizzled Steve Bisley, Red Hill
hits harder than its genre trappings would imply."Revenge
rides into the town of RED HILL when convicted murderer Jimmy Conway
escapes from jail and returns to the outpost town hunting down the cops
who sent him away for life. Enter police office Shane Cooper (True
Blood's Ryan Kwanten), whose first day on the job quickly turns into a
nightmare as he is caught in the middle of what will become a terrifying
and bloody confrontation. Cooper will be forced to take the law into
his own hands if he is to survive."
Directed with panache and enough heart to keep you hooked, it's a mighty satisfying package that marks Hughes out as a talent to watch. Quick-fingered Londoners can still get tickets to The London
Australia Film Festival's screening of Red Hill at Barbican tomorrow
night (9th May) here. Hurry!Red Hill is in UK cinemas from 13th May and on DVD and Blu-ray from 30th May through Momentum Pictures.
