DVD Review: Savage

16 March 2011 4:15 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Savage

Stars: Darren Healy, Nora-Jane Noone | Written & Directed by Brendan Muldowney

The Irish. A bunch of drunks and fighters, as like to use your face as a bottle-opener as shake your hand, or so the stereotype goes. But that’s exactly the stance Savage takes toward the people, painting most of its characters as violent, unhinged thugs. The film follows freelance photographer Paul (Darren Healy)’s descent into mental instability – and ultimately, violence – after being mugged, beaten and even castrated in an alleyway.

A timid and passive character to begin with, the traumatic event reduces his manhood even further, causing him to start carrying a taser and flinch at passersby innocently asking him for the time. His father’s carer Michelle (Nora-Jane Noone) attempts to help him recover, but the wounds are too deep, and it’s only a matter of time before Paul does something drastic in order to restore his masculinity. »

Competition: Five copies of ‘Savage’ to win on DVD

11 March 2011 3:00 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Released on DVD on March 14th, Savage is the debut feature from writer-director Brian Muldowney and stars Darren Healy (Disco Pigs; Layer Cake) and Nora-Jane Noone (The Day Of The Triffids; The Descent; The Magdalene Sisters) in a gritty and brutal “Straw Dogs”-meets-“Taxi Driver” exploration of violence, obsession and revenge that has been described as “uncompromising… utterly compelling… [and] not for the faint-hearted”.

Dubliner Paul Graynor (Darren Healy) works as a freelance press photographer, visually documenting the day-to-day events of a vibrant city that, like many others, is becoming increasingly hostile and threatening. What Paul doesn’t realise is he is about to become front-page tabloid news himself. Walking home alone at night after a date with Michelle (Nora-Jane Noone), the care worker who is responsible for looking after his ailing father, Paul is accosted and violently assaulted by two youths.

Left unconscious by his attackers, he awakes several »

Savage (2009) Movie Review

8 February 2011 11:35 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Irish indie production “Savage” marks the debut of writer-director Brian Muldowney, and is basically a “Taxi Driver” style tale of urban ills and revenge, showing a distinctly non-tourist friendly side to the streets of Dublin. The film features Darren Healy (“Disco Pigs”, “Layer Cake”) in the lead, with support from Nora-Jane Noone (“The Day of the Triffids”, “The Descent”) and various nasty looking young thugs. Having enjoyed a measure of critical praise at festivals, the film now arrives on region 2 DVD via High Fliers Films, coming complete with commentary by and a Q&A session with Muldowney, plus cast auditions. Healy stars as Dubliner Paul Graynor, a press photographer whose trade often brings him into contact with the worst of humanity. One night, walking home after a date with his elderly father’s care worker Michelle (Noone), the poor man is attacked by a couple of particularly vicious youths, who »

Scenes We Love: 'The Descent' (2005)

1 February 2011 12:30 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Horror, Cinematical

At its best (or worst, depending on your perspective), horror taps into our most basic, most elemental, and most primal of fears. No fear is more basic, more elemental, or more primal than fear of the dark. As our ancient ancestors learned, what you don't see can most certainly, definitively cause you grievous bodily harm, up to and including dismemberment and/or a painful, excruciating death. Add to that primal fear of the dark a labyrinthine cave system, lost spelunkers, and cannibalistic mutants and you get something like Neil Marshall's ('Centurion,' 'Doomsday,' 'Dog Soldiers') second (and, so far, best) film, 'The Descent.' Released in the UK and Europe in 2005, but not released stateside until the following summer (with an alternate ending no less), 'The Descent' is survival horror at its most compelling (and terrifying, of course »
