Story


When out-on-bail mob boss Bellavance (Ray Wise) discovers that $500,000 of his money is missing, he sends four hardcore hit men (including Dana Ashbrook and Derek Mears) to send a 'loud and messy' message to the suspected thieves' families. But when the killers invade the Rutledge home, they'll meet the household's emotionally disturbed young son Owen (Ryan Hartwig).

Owen has a history of violent behavior, knows how to make lethal booby-traps and is about to teach these thugs some deadly lessons in extreme vengeance. Fabianne Therese co-stars in the savage thriller that IndieWire called'like Home Alone with more death!'

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..taken as simply a tough-as-nails indie stalk / chase / revenge thriller, The Aggression Scale is sort of a low-budget ass-kicker..”
by Scott Weinberg [FEARnet]
“..as a direct-to-video flick, the movie is surprisingly better than what is commonly anticipated of its type, adding a slight twist to the home-invasion thriller that's interesting and fun..”
by M. Enois Duarte [High-Def Digest]
“..Miller makes good use of his budget with simple but entertaining action sequences involving a rolling truck and a used car lot, and shoots everything with a refreshing directorial clarity missing from far too many Hollywood movies..”
by Tyler Foster [DVD Talk]
