After a violent home invasion leaves him in a coma and his wife deeply traumatized, a mild-mannered husband awakens to find out that one of the attackers is still on the loose. As they try to move on with their lives, one day his nearly-despondent wife spots the attacker, opening up a twisted tale of brutal revenge where all isn't as it seems.
RAGE aims to explore the aftermath of trauma, the expectations of modern marriage, revenge and infidelity.
We are very excited to work with some of the most dedicated and talented people in the indie film industry. We are looking forward to deliver an engaging and hard hitting raw and gritty look at the dark side of marriage that deals with themes of sexual assault, infidelity, murder and revenge. We feel that our vision and voice will be a welcome addition to the Australian film industry as we strive to pave the way for a mix of artistic and commercially viable products to hit both the home-grown and international marketplace.
Our end goal and mission is to create a polished and commercial standard, nail biting 2 hour thriller that focuses on rich characters wrapped in a dynamic and engaging story. We want to bring back the the simplistic and narrative driven films of the 50's and 60's thrillers through modern filmmaking techniques. With an over saturation of big CGI films, this is a refreshing and stripped back approach where story and character is the drawcard to obtain eyeballs, whether on SVOD or limited cinema run.
