Check Out the Amazing Effects Which Help Make Blue Ruin One of the Best Films of the Year

I had no expectations going into a festival screening of Blue Ruin. In a JDIFF programme packed with dramas and people being unhappy, the fact that it appeared to be more of a thriller and even had some promise of action was enough to get my arse in a seat. Then it began.

90 minutes later I emerged convinced that I'd seen one of the best films of the year.Jeremy Saulnier's film is that rare thing - a micro-budget feature (which got some backing from Kickstarter) that never feels constrained. It's also a film that touches on many genres, is peopled with strong performances and features the kind of deep, dark humour that you rarely see in any kind of movie.

In short, its great. And you can have a look at how some of it was made in this brief special effects featurette.

The effects work is another incredible aspect of the film, adding another surprise for audiences to get their heads around.

Blue Ruin is on home video in the States now and hits DVD and blu-ray in Ireland and the UK on the 8th of September 2014.
