On their way to Mexico, a mysterious drifter named Paul (Ethan Hawke) and his dog cut through 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 controlled by a brash group of misfits and nitwits - chief among them, Gilly (James Ransone) who is the troublemaking son of the town’s unforgiving Marshal (John Travolta). As tensions rise between Paul and Gilly, Denton’s remaining residents, including two bickering sisters (Taissa Farmiga and Karen Gillan), bear witness to an inevitable act of violence that starts a disastrous chain reaction. Only the world-weary Marshal struggles to stop the violent hysteria, but after a gruesome discovery about Paul’s past…there is no stopping the escalation. From writer/director Ti West and Blumhouse Productions, In a Valley of Violence brings absurdist humor and West’s shocking scenes of violence to the Western genre.
