When out-on-bail mob boss Bellavance (Wise) discovers that $500,000 of his money is missing, he sends four hardcore hit men (including Ashbrook and Mears) to send a â€śloud and messyâ€ť message to the suspected thievesâ€™ families. But when the killers invade the Rutledge home, theyâ€™ll meet the householdâ€™s emotionally disturbed young son Owen (Ryan Hartwig). Owen has a history of violent behavior, knows how to make lethal booby-traps and is about to teach these thugs some deadly lessons in extreme vengeance. Fabianne Therese co-stars in the savage thriller that IndieWire called â€ślike Home Alone with more death!â€ť
Websterâ€™s dictionary defines The Aggression Scale as the frequency of overt aggressive behaviors in children that may result in physical or psychological injury to others, but The Aggression Scale here isnâ€™t scientific. Itâ€™s a visceral reaction from two unusual teenagers whose most vicious instincts are unleashed in order to protect themselves and their home. Disturbing, dark and unforgettable, The Aggression Scale is a pulse-pounding ride that will leave you in a sweat.
