British crime dramas can be perilous things, but – thankfully – HYENA seems to have broken the mould.
Written and directed by Gerard Johnson, the imposing cast re-unites the director with Peter Ferdinando.
Boardwalk Empire and Made In England star Stephen Graham is also prominent, with Neil Maskell, Tony Pitts and Richard Dormer all lending support.
Centred on the character of Michael Logan, the film explores the taut troika between a highly functioning drug addict, a corrupt police officer and ruthless Albanian gangsters.
Matching the brutality of these incoming thugs to Logan's increasing self-doubt and spiralling paranoia, the ominous atmosphere is aided by a sympathetic score from Matt Johnson (The The).
Out on March 6th, Clash is able to bring you a short, 30 second trailer before anywhere else.
