Romina, an overworked nurse and single mother, returns home from her late shift on Halloween night to find Chris, a forlorn maniac, hiding out with Alan, a bruised and beaten hostage within her home. Her home becomes the stage for Chris to enact brutal justice up Alan whom he blames for an alleged act of horrendous inexcusable violence against a close family member. Romina finds herself plunged into a personal hell as she struggles to side with either party. The worst is yet to come.
An unexpected wave of violent intruders descend upon the neighbourhood and lay siege to her home. The trio soon realize the only way out of the situation is to become as violent and vicious as everyone else.
For the Sake of Vicious is directed by Gabriel Carrer and Reese Eveneshen, from a script by Reese Eveneshen; based on a story by Gabriel Carrer. Gabriel and Reese says: “For the Sake of Vicious was a long time coming for us. We’ve been colleagues and friends for over ten years, often supporting each others personal projects. We came together at a crossroads in our life and For the Sake of Vicious was born out of that creative edge and frustration.”
“The goal was simple and it was right there in the title, we wanted to make something vicious… Part of it was from our own anger and resentment; another part of it was from watching the world tear itself apart. But alas, this is not a political piece… this is a small-scale, violent, and brutal action film.”

Executive producers include Marvin Waxman, James Fler, Michael Paszt and Andrew Thomas Hunt. Produced by Fedegreen Entertainment, Latefox Pictures and Raven Banner Entertainment.
