Brian Cox, Kim Dickens, Tom Sizemore, Robert Englund, Amanda Plummer / Fiction / English

Brian Cox gives a mighty performance in this tense, intelligent smalltown thriller.

All Avery wants is to settle into old age and nurse his memories, with his faithful hound Red by his side. When local thugs disrupt those plans, they find themselves up against an unexpectedly formidable foe. Based on a novel by the cult horror scribe Jack Ketchum, and costarring the legend that is Tom Sizemore, this is redhot: as creepy, cool and compassionate as Stephen King at his best.
