How much blood would you spill to avenge those you love? Andy Park passes out at the sight of blood, but he thinks he’s discovered a way to make his family’s enemies pay. He isn’t prepared for the fall-out, though. Before long, his teenage son is in mortal danger, and his daughter and her fiance are knee-deep in corpses. Meanwhile, a masked man known as Mr Smith is blackmailing Tommy Savage – for what, he has no idea. After an attempt to gain the upper hand has near-fatal results, Tommy and his brother find themselves heading to a graveyard with only a couple of swords and a bag of cash for company. A blood-pumping tragi-comedy of love and violence, “Savage Night” unfolds over six frenetic hours in Scotland’s capital city.
Reviews of Savage Night
'Black comedy akin to the work of Christopher Brookmyre … If you have a robust sense of humour, you'll love this.' The Observer
