Raven Banner To Screen 20 Minutes Of SAVAGED At Fan Expo This Weekend!
It was towards the end of last year that we set our eyes upon the teaser trailer for Michael Ojeda's revenge thriller Savaged. And while the production is continuing to put the finishing touches in post Raven Banner is going to treat visitors to Fan Expo here in Toronto. On Sunday, August 25th, at noon in Room 707, Raven Banner will screen 20 minutes from the upcoming film.
While travelling across country, Zoe, a lovely deaf mute woman, stumbles on a horrific crime - a gang of rednecks slaughtering two Native American boys. Zoe's brave attempt to save one of the boys seals her fate. She is captured, raped and left for dead. When an Indian shaman finds her clinging to life in a shallow grave he attempts to save her - but something goes horribly wrong.The spirit of an ancient Apache warrior takes host of Zoe's dead body. So now she walks amongst the living, hell-bent on getting revenge. One by one she slaughters the men who brutalized her, while the clock ticks away on her quickly decomposing body.
