After a shooting at a police funeral, a reclusive ex-cop and members of his militia must interrogate one another to find the rogue gunmen before copycat attacks start a nationwide war between cops and citizen vigilantes. As suspicions mount within the group, the militiamen find their trust — and their tempers— stretched to capacity in this high-intensity mystery-thriller. With James Badge Dale, Happy Anderson, Patrick Fischler, Brian Geraghty, Robert Aramayo.
“The dialogue crackles, the characters are well-defined, and the actors smartly cast – especially Dale, whose coiled, crafty vibe is ideally suited to the role of a former police interrogator.” (NOW Toronto)
“The Standoff At Sparrow Creek exudes nail-biting tension thanks to Badge Dale’s commanding investigative brutishness. Exquisitely tense and heated to a furious boil.” (SlashFilm)
“Dunham’s debut is a taut, tight work of pulp fiction that’s practically predestined to draw comparisons to Quentin Tarantino’s RESERVOIR DOGS.” (Birth.Movies.Death.)
“As far as slow-burn indies go, this puppy has got some bite to match its non-stop barking.” (Collider)
