Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus, The Midnight Meat Train) returns to form with a tense and bloody thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

When a group of car-sharing millennials break down on a remote, dusty road, it seems like a great opportunity to get to know each other while they change the tyre. But a sniper hidden in the trees has a different idea, picking off the group one by one. Pinned down and with no phone signal, the survivors must figure out how to survive and manage to find help without becoming the gunman’s next victim. Executed with a refreshing minimalism, Downrange eschews convoluted plotting and exposition, instead exploiting the simple thrills of gooey gore gags, outrageous car stunts, its deadeye antagonist and an iconic confrontation. A wickedly entertaining bloodbath results, direct from the twisted mind of cult provocateur Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus, Midnight Meat Train).

“There's a firestorm of bullets and flesh that make it one of the bloodiest films in recent memory. What was remarkable, however, was how engaging it all is.”

Bloody Disgusting

“Cult favorite Ryûhei Kitamura's nihilistic single location nightmare makes a monster out of a bloodthirsty sniper.”
