There’s no better time than now to watch a movie scarier than the fear of getting the coronavirus. Dread looms large in writer/director Teddy Grennan’s “Ravage,” a 77-minute, run-for-your-life heart pounder featuring a kick-ass Annabelle Dexter-Jones, a ferocious Robert Longstreet, and a chillingly menacing Bruce Dern. Dexter-Jones plays a professional photographer who witnesses a savage murder in the rural backwoods of the South and thus becomes prey for the good ol’ boys who have committed the crime. She’s captured, tortured, and escapes. While evading her pursuers hellbent on her demise, she sets booby traps that even the playing field but, ultimately, the tables turn. No spoilers, but a particularly grisly scene may be hard to shake.
Opening in select drive-in theaters August 14th and VOD August 21st.
Also available late August is “You Cannot Kill David Arquette,” an unflinchingly honest look at David’s life and his dedication to do whatever it takes to earn the respect of his fellow professional wrestlers. His performance is a veritable tour de force. Kudos to David, directors David Darg and Prince James, and all involved.
A shout-out to the legendary Louis Gossett Jr. on his Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor on HBO’s “Watchmen.” His new movie, “The Cuban,” just opened. For a list of theaters, click here.
