Starting later this week, Daily Dead will be providing live coverage of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and right now we have a look at a new poster and stills from Bad Day for the Cut, a revenge thriller set in the Irish countryside that is one of many films we'll be covering at the fest.

Synopsis: "Donal is a farmer who still lives at home in a little Irish village with his mother Florence. He works the fields during the day and drinks in the local pub at night. He seems content with a simple, quiet life. The only sense we get of his wish for something more is an old campervan, which he has lovingly restored. When Florence is killed in an apparent home invasion Donal sets off for Belfast in the little red van, looking for revenge. What he finds is a world of violence and brutality that he can’t understand and a secret about his mother that will shake him to his core."

Directed by Chris Baugh from a screenplay he wrote with Brendan Mullin, Bad Day for the Cut stars Nigel O'Neill, Susan Lynch, Józef Pawłowski, Stuart Graham, Anna Próchniak, and Ian McElhinney.
