A visceral experience rife with violence, it’s interesting to note that for the director, this preoccupation with violence is entirely subconscious. “I would say that I'm more interested in existential sort of filmmaking questions about why we're here, and I suppose that's where…

Get a Look at the Powerful Trailer for Upcoming Irish Film Savage

Savage, judging by the trailer, might be the most aptly named film to come along in quite a while. Take a look at this Irish psychological thriller and see if you don't agree!

Written and directed by Brendan Muldowney and starring Darren Healy and Nora-Jane Noone in a film that's already been compared to Taxi Driver, Savage looks to follow right in step with that Straw Dogs, man pushed too far motif. We're digging what we've seen so far.

Watch the trailer, and then check out the official Savage website and while you're at it, head over to the official Savage Facebook page and give them a like. This one looks like it has real potential to knock audiences on their asses!
