Presentation

Synopsis

On the verge of closing down, a family-owned bar must fend off a blood-thirsty cult to survive the night. ‘Bar Fight’ is the ultimate showdown between horror and action. It takes the classic one-location horror set-up and adds a martial artist to the mix. While ‘Bar Fight’ delivers on the action, the story is more than kicks and punches. At its heart, the film is about reconnecting with family, learning to see things from someone else’s perspective and standing up to bullies (in this case personified by a machete-wielding cult of psychopaths).

Director’s vision

At its heart, ‘Bar Fight’ is my love letter to dive bars and, more importantly, small town America. I’m from the sticks of Maine and couldn’t wait to leave for ‘the city,’ but in recent years I’ve been rediscovering my roots. ‘Bar Fight’ is about giving something a second chance and being open to changing your mind.
