Trailer: Ti West's In a Valley of Violence

Ti West makes the jump from slow-burn horror to revenge western with his latest film In a Valley of Violence. The long-gestating western sees the writer-director work with the biggest names of his career so far: John Travolta and Ethan Hawke. Here's a rather lengthy synopsis:

A mysterious drifter named Paul and his dog Abbie make their way towards Mexico through the barren desert of the old west. In an attempt to shorten their journey they cut through the center of a large valley, landing themselves in the forgotten town of Denton, a place now dubbed by locals as a “valley of violence.” The once popular mining town is nearly abandoned, and is controlled by a brash group of misfits and nitwits—chief among them the seemingly untouchable Gilly, who is the troublemaking son of the town’s unforgiving Marshal. As tensions rise between Paul and Gilly, Denton’s remaining residents bear witness to an inevitable act of violence that starts a disastrous chain reaction, infecting the petty lives of all involved and quickly dragging the whole town into the bloody crosshairs of revenge.

West is one of the most exciting genre filmmakers working just now and if he's as skilled at crafting a western as he is horror film then In a Valley of Violence is going to be a real treat. Tarisa Farmiga and Karen Gillan also star in the project.

The film gets its US release 21 October.
