Apart from sporting a mean moniker, Gabriel Carrer’s vigilante film The Demolisher looks impacting and synthy; a hard edged throwback of citywide violence.
The Demolisher is the fourth feature from Carrer, the Canadian indie filmmaker behind If A Tree Falls, Kill and the Henry Rollins-starring In The House of Flies. In the film, “Bruce (Ryan Barrett) is an ordinary repairman tormented by a crippling sense of responsibility for his disabled wife Samantha, an ex-policewoman (Tianna Nori), the survivor of a gang-related assault. Bruces increasing hyper-sensitivity to the injustice suffered by his wife steer him down a dark path of vigilantism, and with his rapidly disintegrating mental health, paranoia and overwhelming sense of doom, Bruce channels his inner rage towards a young woman Marie (Jessica Vano) and finds refuge in a world of extreme violence.”
