The Aggression Scale Trailer

What is The Aggression Scale? Wow, I am very impressed, I really want to see this now! THR posted the first promo trailer for The Aggression Scale, directed by Steven C. Miller, which was just announced as a world premiere in the SXSW Film Festival's midnight category next month. The original description states: 4 hitmen + $500,000 of stolen cash + 1 family = WAR. It basically looks like a home invasion meets crazy teens, and more, horror but I love this trailer, I love the music, it looks great. The cast includes Fabianne Therese, Dana Ashbrook, Derek Mears, Jacob Reynolds and Ray Wise. Highly suggest watching!

Watch the first SXSW teaser trailer for Steven C. Miller's The Aggression Scale, via THR:

The Aggression Scale is an 1980's influenced action movie with two teenagers as the heroes. Four heavily armed hitmen and two unusual teenagers go to war over $500,000 of stolen cash at a home of one family.

The Aggression Scale is directed & edited by Steven C. Miller, of the zombie film Automaton Transfusion previously, from a screenplay written by Ben Powell. It was produced by Travis Stevens of Snowfort Pictures and Joe McKelheer and Eben Kostbar of Film Harvest. This is premiering at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival in Austin in March. For more info, visit the official website: SlashFilm also has the first poster.

Nice trailer. If it ever makes it across the pond I'll go see it

Automaton Transfusion was a horrible excuse for a movie.  I don't care what the budget was.  BUT it's good to see Miller is moving forward and evolving. Granted, I didn't have sound watching this, but his shot direction and camerawork is far better than anything he's shown in the past. Just confused by the font choice....did that throw any one else off, or was that just something the sound might have helped me understand?

isnt that two actors from twin peaks?

Great observation. I wouldn't have noticed Dana Ashbrook if it weren't for your post. Ray Wise is a bit more obvious though.

Automaton Transfusion was alright. This looks pretty rad. I'm in.

Anyone know what this song is?

The font was strange, everyone seems to be doing the 'Drive' thing. But otherwise is looks good. Lots of running away and skyward screaming but hey...

What languages is the movie made in?

2 teens holding their own against 4 hitmen?.......if a person can let themselves believe that, then this might be an ok watch.

If you read the official synopsis, you'll see that they are not really 'hitmen' per se, but rather four performers from Circu Soleil who are told that unless they do this deed (posing as knarly cold blooded hitmen) they will never wear a pair of purple, crotch hugging spandex again. Realising that their multi-colored dreams of fabulousness are about to be taken from them, our performers try their best to play the tole of hit men but are easily out-maned by several teenage girls and one rather effeminate lad.

Is Richard Pryor in this?

Crapola on Feb 9, 2012


Looks good, I"d see it..

Definitely ordinary B-movie without the background score. If only it plays the same all thru the movie.

Home Alone 4: The ridley scott remake looks good
