Described by the media as "thrilling" (Bizarre), "scary and believable" (Sci-Fi London), and "a seriously shocking chiller for our times" (Alan Jones, Frightfest), Salvage, the stunning debut feature from director Lawrence Gough, is a brand new British horror film that redefines the genre with a strong female heroine and a topical plot that positions the terror right on our doorstep.
Written by Colin O'Donnell (Hollyoaks) and starring Neve Mcintosh (Dr. Who; Gormenghast), Shaun Dooley (Married Single Other; Eden Lake), Linzey Cocker (Wild Child), Trevor Hancock (Behind Closed Doors), Dean Andrews (Life on Mars), Kevin Harvey (Everyone Loves Sunshine), Paul Opacic (Bad Girls) and Shahid Ahmed (28 Weeks Later), the film has already thrilled audiences at the London Frightfest, the Edinburgh Film Festival and at Texas's prestigious Fantastic Fest where the film's star Neve Mcintosh was rewarded with the Best Horror Actress Award.
It's Christmas Eve and a quiet cul-de-sac is suddenly plunged into a world of violence, terror and paranoia when a group of heavily armed military personnel storms the area, sealing off the close and ordering the residents at gunpoint to retreat inside their homes. Unsure if this is the first sign of a terrorist attack, or something worse, one local single mother, Beth (Neve Mcintosh), finds it in herself to fight to save her estranged daughter, Jodie (Linzey Cocker), who is visiting her for the holiday but is now stranded across the street in a neighbour's house. However, with growing dread, the trapped residents soon discover that the imminent threat is far more monstrous than any of them could possibly imagine.
Only one thing is certain... survival is no longer guaranteed. Shot by Director of Photography Simon Tindall (Bright Star; The Queen, 28 Days Later) on location in and around Merseyside and on the set once used for the popular TV drama series 'Brookside', this highly effective shocker is one of the best British horror movies to come along in years.
Salvage is released by Revolver Entertainment and will be released on DVD on 22nd March 2010 and open at selected UK cinemas on 19th March 2010 as well as being available on Sky Box Office, iTunes, FilmFlex and LOVEFilM on the same day.
