An unconventional horror yarn

Red White and Blue review

A twitchy revenger’s tragedy that veers from offbeat indie towards torture porn, Brit writer/director Simon Rumley’s follow-up to the equally vivid The Living And The Dead shows three lives messily intersecting in Nowheresville, Texas.

Amanda Fuller is the promiscuous little girl lost, Marc Senter her one-night stand and Noah Taylor her would-be saviour, though salvation’s in short supply here.

Not a horror film, but an undeniably horrifying one, it depicts believable characters in credibly desperate situations, with none of the usual genre comforts on hand to halt the path to damnation.

      I saw this last Halloween at our annual festival in Dublin. A truly fantastic film but it's far from an easy watch. It deals with very dark subject matter but in a manner which makes you question how one would react in similar circumstances. It also contains two genuinely brilliant performances from the consistently excellent Noah Taylor and the sadly often overlooked but insanely talented Marc Senter.
