Indie Trailer Sunday: Australian Neo-Western 'Red Hill' Trailer
Revenge just rode into town. Today's trailer is for a "neo-western" called Red Hill that actually comes out of Australia, directed by Patrick Hughes and starring Aussie actor Ryan Kwanten (of "True Blood" fame). It's essentially about a police officer (Kwanten) who moves to the small country town of Red Hill, but on his first day on the job, there's a prison break and a convicted murderer serving life behind bars makes his way out to seek revenge. Thanks to Twitch for first finding this. It's got a bit of No Country for Old Men feel to it, but it also just looks damn good, especially in the second half of this trailer. It's a good find, so check it out!

The film was shot in Omeo, Australia last year and has already played the Berlin, Melbourne, Sydney and Edinburgh Film Fests, with Chicago and Fantastic Fest coming next.
