Exclusive: Clip From 'Blue Ruin' Takes Aim, Ready To Shoot

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist April 23, 2014 at 11:04AM

We hope that wherever director Jeremy Saulnier is, he's giving himself a moment to put his feet up. The director spent most of 2013 following his thriller "Blue Ruin" around the world as it made festival stops in Cannes, Toronto, Marrakech, Locarno, Deauville and more. And if that impressive sheet doesn't convince you that this is one you need to track down, perhaps our own Gabe Toro can persuade you, with his review declaring it to be: "the most suspenseful American film of the year, a thriller that feels like lightning across a quiet night sky; sudden, terrifying, and excitingly singular."

Blue Ruin

We hope that wherever director Jeremy Saulnier is, he's giving himself a moment to put his feet up. The director spent most of 2013 following his thriller "Blue Ruin" around the world as it made festival stops in Cannes, Toronto, Marrakech, Locarno, Deauville and more. And if that impressive sheet doesn't convince you that this is one you need to track down, perhaps our own Gabe Toro can persuade you, with his review declaring it to be: "the most suspenseful American film of the year, a thriller that feels like lightning across a quiet night sky; sudden, terrifying, and excitingly singular."

Well, now you can get a taste for the movie yourself, as we have an exclusive clip from "Blue Ruin." Starring Macon Blair and Devin Ratray, the story follows a man who returns to his childhood home on a mission of vengeance, but when things don't go as planned, he's forced to protect his estranged family. And as you'll see in this sequence, he gets some eerie tips about unloading on his target. Don't talk, don't hesitate, just shoot. And it's a nice sampler of the atmosphere of the entire movie.

"Blue Ruin" arrives on April 25th in limited release and will be available on VOD as well. Watch below.
