A grieving man goes on a rampage in Savage Salvation’s trailer

With so many independent films on the marketplace, it’s easy to lose track of some promising titles. Savage Salivation isn’t likely to suffer that fate, however, if only because the filmmakers have assembled a cast that would be the envy of many major studio flicks.

Jack Huston, who was so wonderfully compelling as Richard Harrow on the HBO show Boardwalk Empire, is taking the leading role opposite Robert De Niro and John Malkovich. Huston plays Shelby John, a man whose dream of a better life has seemingly ended with the tragic death of his fiancée, Ruby Red (Willa Fitzgerald).

As shown in the trailer above, Shelby and Ruby were deeply in love, and also deeply ashamed of the things they had done in their respective lives. That’s why they wanted to skip town and start over somewhere else where they could leave their addictions and other issues behind. Unfortunately, Ruby didn’t live long enough for that plan to come to fruition. And in his grief, Shelby has taken it upon himself to hunt down the members of the local illegal drug operation and kill them all to avenge Ruby’s death.

Sheriff Church (De Niro) is sympathetic to Shelby’s plight, but also seemingly several steps behind as Shelby takes out his anger and frustration on anyone he finds who has a connection to the drugs that claimed Ruby’s life. And if Shelby isn’t careful, his vendetta will claim his life as well.

Malkovich also stars in the film as Ruby’s older brother-in-law, Peter, with Winter Ave Zoli as Darlene, Lindsay Pulsipher as Jess, Katalina Viteri as Annie, Clay Wilcox as Darius, and Quavo Quavo as Coyote.

Randall Emmett directed the film from a script by Adam Taylor Barker and Chris Sivertson. Savage Salvation will be released in theaters and on digital on December 2.

The best fantasy movies on Netflix right now
The cast of Warcraft.

There should be some epic quest that Netflix subscribers can go on to get fresh fantasy movies to watch. We love Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer as much as anyone else, but these movies are over 40 years old and they shouldn't be the prime options for Netflix's fantasy section. Fortunately for fantasy fans, they aren't the only new films to watch this month. Netflix has also recently added Warcraft, the 2016 adaptation of the fantasy video game World of Warcraft. It's no Lord of the Rings, but Warcraft is still enjoyable, and the special effects are very impressive.

Most of Netflix's other fantasy selections come from its lineup of original movies including Damsel and The School for Good and Evil. Unfortunately, not all of those home-grown fantasies have much appeal beyond watching them the first time. But until we can have a wider selection in this category, these are the best fantasy movies on Netflix right now.

Don’t let these 3 July 2024 hidden streaming movie gems fly under your radar

The summer movie season is thriving, thanks to a generous collection of high-profile movies that are proving, in no uncertain terms, that the film industry is alive and well. Pixar's Inside Out 2 is breaking all kinds of records, while Lee Isaac Chung's upcoming Twisters seems bound to offer the perfect blend of artistry and commercial entertainment. Finally, Deadpool & Wolverine will end the month by finally putting the "comic book movies are dead" argument to rest.

However, if you're perhaps tired of the big-budget offerings on the big screen, or maybe are just not keen on going to the movie theater that often, streaming has several options for you. Those looking for new, underappreciated films will surely appreciate these three options, which have sadly gone ignored for far too long. Whether you're looking for horror, thrillers, or comedies, these movies are for you.
