The subtext won’t be hard to miss in this neck-snapping red band trailer for Raze, a low budget beat ’em up picture that seems to blend exploitation with a strong point of view.
I wonder if the title is deliberately similar to Shinya Tsukamoto’s brilliantly unsettling Haze, another film about the fight for survival in a subterranean nightmare…?
Sherilyn Fenn has finally gone Full Liz Taylor, I see. It had been foretold in the stars – or at least by a TV movie.
And Zoe Bell is obviously a very capable stunt performer and quite a winning actress too, in her fashion. I think she’s the perfect lead for this kind of fare.
I hope to see more from Raze soon. It looks like two great set pieces and a clever twist away from cult classic status.
