If Commando was set in the Louisiana swamplands, you’d have Savage Justice. Newly engaged Shelby John (Jack Huston, Kill Your Darlings) and Ruby Red (Willa Fitzgerald, Scream: The TV Series) want a fresh start after their struggles with addiction, but when Shelby discovers his beloved Ruby dead on their porch, he embarks on a vengeful killing spree of the dealers who supplied her. Armed with nothing but adrenaline and a nail gun, Shelby begins to unleash chaos on the town’s criminal underbelly, gradually making his way to the crime lord Coyote (Quavo, The First Purge). Sheriff Church (Robert De Niro, Raging Bull) must race against the clock to put an end to Shelby’s vigilante justice before the entire town descends into a bloodbath – even if that means putting him down. Also starring John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich), Savage Justice is directed by Randall Emmett (Silence, End of Watch) and written by Adam Taylor Barker and Chris Sivertson (I Know Who Killed Me).
Signature Entertainment presents Savage Justice on Digital Platforms in the UK from December 12th, with a DVD release on 13th February, 2023.
