Our own Heather Wixson LOVED In a Valley of Violence when she saw it at SXSW, giving it a perfect score in her review. This fall, you'll be able to see it for yourself, as Focus World announced that they will release the Ti West revenge Western in select theaters and on VOD in October.
Focus World will release In a Valley of Violence in select theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on October 21st, 2016:
"A mysterious drifter named Paul (Ethan Hawke) and his dog (YouTube sensation Jumpy) make their way towards Mexico through the barren desert of the old west. In an attempt to shorten their journey, they cut through the center of a large valley -- landing themselves in the forgotten town of Denton, a place now dubbed by locals as a "valley of violence." The once-popular mining town is nearly abandoned and controlled by a brash group of misfits -- chief among them Gilly (James Ransone), the troublemaking son of the town’s Marshal (John Travolta).
As tensions rise between Paul and Gilly, Denton’s remaining residents bear witness to an inevitable act of violence that starts a disastrous chain reaction, infecting the petty lives of all involved and quickly drags the whole town into the bloody crosshairs of revenge. Mary-Anne (Taissa Farmiga) and Ellen (Karen Gillan), two bickering sisters who run the town’s only hotel, try to find the good in both men, while desperately searching for their own salvation. Only the world-weary Marshal struggles to stop the violent hysteria, but after a gruesome discovery about Paul’s past… there is no stopping the escalation.
From writer/director Ti West (THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, THE INNKEEPERS, and THE SACRAMENT) and Blumhouse Productions (INSIDIOUS, THE VISIT, WHIPLASH and THE GIFT), IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE brings absurdist humor, unique dialogue and West’s shocking scenes of violence to the Western genre. The film also boasts a stellar supporting cast that includes Toby Huss ("Halt and Catch Fire”), Burn Gorman (THE DARK NIGHT RISES, PACIFIC RIM) and genre darling Larry Fessenden (YOU’RE NEXT, I SELL THE DEAD)."
Written and directed by Ti West, In a Valley of Violence stars Ethan Hawke, Taissa Farmiga, James Ransone, Karen Gillan, and John Travolta.
