Netflix Movie Review: Salvage

Salvage (Rated R) is a British horror film directed by Lawrence Gough, written by Colin O'Donnel and Alan Patterson. I had it in my queue for some time. The movie cover was 220px-Salvage_DVD_coverappealing, but for some reason I kept shying away from watching it. Granted, I have over 145 movies and shows currently in queue, but that is neither here nor there.

The premise is simple. It is the morning of Christmas Eve. Clive (Dean Andrews) is taking his daughter Jodie (Lindzey Cocker) to stay with her mother, Beth (Neve McIntosh). The couple divorced a while back. Jodie prefers to stay with her father. She wants nothing to do with her mother, blames the failed marriage on her, and can't help but feel abandoned.

The news indicates that a shipping container was found on a nearby beach. Military helicopters are flying everywhere. When Jodie gets to her mother's, and after a last-ditch effort to stay with her father, she lets herself into Beth's house. Upstairs she finds her mother having sex with Kieran (Shaun Dooley), and flees to stay a few doors down at a friend's house.

Turns out the shipping container contained a genetically altered person who is now a killing monster. The military fill the small town, ordering people to stay inside. The monster begins picking off neighbors and military personnel. Beth's main concern is finding and keeping safe her daughter.

At 79 minutes, the movie is thrilling. The action is tight and I caught myself jump more than once. The acting was excellent. McIntosh was outstanding. I expected "Jodie" to be more of a focal point based on the beginning, but it id McIntosh and Dooley who own the movie. The dialogue is crisp and intense. The new way I am judging movies is by if I play with my phone during them. This film, Salvage, I did not. I am giving it 7 out of 10.
