Time for a little foreign flavor at Scream Factory with Rabid Dogs spicing up the screen. The French heist film promises to be a rush. It stars Lambert Wilson who played The Merovingian in The Matrix Reloaded in a less than suave role. The movie hits Blu-ray June 14. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
“4 stars… in the big finale, after all of the elements have slowly been brought to a
raging boil, the climax duels out a shocking blow and delivers a gut
punch of an ending.” – Bloody Disgusting

On the main avenue of a crowded city, Sabri (Guillaume Gouix, The Returned), grips the steering wheel of his car, eyes fixed anxiously on the bank entrance opposite… Then, there’s a sudden explosion, and three masked men race to the car, loaded with stolen cash. Unfortunately, everything is about to go wrong. With the cops right behind them, the car crashes and their boss is killed. Sabri and his accomplices are forced to run. The desperate criminals will stop at nothing to make their escape. Taking a young woman and a father and child hostage, they embark on a crazy, violent road trip that not all of them will survive…
