Aggression, which will have its world premiere at the Austin fest, is described as being in the spirit of the 1980s canon and in the vein of A History of Violence but with the teens as the heroes, taking on four hitmen over $500,000 in stolen cash.
Among the cast are Fabianne Therese (John Dies at the End, which will also play as part of the Midnighters program), Ryan Hartwig (The Thompsons), Dana Ashbrook (Twin Peaks), Derek Mears (the recent Friday the 13th reboot), Jacob Reynolds (Gummo), Joseph McKelheer (The Hamiltons) and Ray Wise (Twin Peaks).
It was directed and edited by Steven C. Miller (the zombie flick Automaton Transfusion) and written by Ben Powell. The movie hails from Snowfort Pictures and Film Harvest.
