If you’re a regular on Moviehooker then you will know that I have been keeping a close eye on a new hardcore vigilante movie called, The Demolisher.
This is a film that managed to suck me in, even before I knew anything about the plot. This was due to the awesome poster that was released. It was simple, yet effective – it had someone dressed in full riot gear and the title The Demolisher (above image).
The guys over at TwitchFilm were the first unleash the trailer you are about to see. The Demolisher will have it’s world premiere on July 27th at Fantasia Film Festival, Montreal, Canada.
Bruce (Ryan Barrett) is an ordinary repairman tormented by a crippling sense of responsibility for his disabled wife Samantha, an ex-policewoman (Tianna Nori), the survivor of a gang-related assault. Bruce’s increasing hyper-sensitivity to the injustice suffered by his wife steer him down a dark path of vigilantism, and with his rapidly disintegrating mental health, paranoia and overwhelming sense of doom, Bruce channels his inner rage towards a young woman Marie (Jessica Vano) and finds refuge in a world of extreme violence. Both a character study and a psychological examination of trauma, The Demolisher is an unapologetic portrayal of what can happen when a fragile mind is pushed too far.
Sounds awesome, doesn’t it?
Enjoy the Trailer & thanks for reading.
