For the Sake of Vicious – Gabriel Carrer and Reese Eveneshen
Reese Eveneshen and Gabriel Carrer made sure For the Sake of Vicious checked all the boxes for blood, gore, and non-apologetic violence.
There were creative kills. Property destruction. And plenty of nondescript bad guys getting killed by heroes you want to cheer for.
The film stars Lora Burke, Nick Smyth, and Colin Paradine. Gabriel Carrer and Reese Eveneshen directed the movie from a script from Eveneshen.
Here’s the long synopsis of the movie:
Romina, an overworked nurse and single mother, returns home from her late shift on Halloween night to find Chris, a forlorn maniac, hiding out with Alan, a bruised and beaten hostage within her home. Her home becomes the stage for Chris to enact brutal justice up Alan whom he blames for an alleged act of horrendous inexcusable violence against a close family member. Romina finds herself plunged into a personal hell as she struggles to side with either party. The worst is yet to come.
An unexpected wave of violent intruders descend upon the neighborhood and lay siege to her home. The trio soon realizes the only way out of the situation is to become as violent and vicious as everyone else.
