Red, White & Blue review

An unconventional horror yarn

A twitchy revenger’s tragedy that veers from offbeat indie towards torture porn, Brit writer/director Simon Rumley’s follow-up to the equally vivid The Living And The Dead shows three lives messily intersecting in Nowheresville, Texas.

Amanda Fuller is the promiscuous little girl lost, Marc Senter her one-night stand and Noah Taylor her would-be saviour, though salvation’s in short supply here.

Not a horror film, but an undeniably horrifying one, it depicts believable characters in credibly desperate situations, with none of the usual genre comforts on hand to halt the path to damnation.
