Christmas Eve, and the residents of a quiet British cul-de-sac are suddenly plunged into a world of violence, terror and paranoia when a group of heavily armed military personnel storm their road ordering them at gunpoint to retreat inside their homes. Unsure if this is the sign of a terrorist attack, or something much worse, one local mother finds it in herself to desperately fight to save her estranged daughter stranded across the street. However, with growing dread, the residents soon discover that the threat is more monstrous than any of them could possibly imagine, and survival is no longer a guarantee. A stunning debut from director Lawrence Gough, featuring an award-winning cast (Neve McIntosh Best Horror Actress at Fantastic Fest 2009), Salvage is a nail-biting exercise in sheer adrenaline-fuelled fear that will chill you to your very core.

It's well shot, very claustrophobic (even at the start) and the cast are very good as they have to be without a lot of FX etc. help them carry the movie.
The advertising sells it as much more of a monster movie that it really is. This is a film about small rooms and fear.
It's Christmas Eve, The Wirral, Merseyside, and 14 year old Jodie is reluctantly spending Christmas with her estranged mother, Beth. But family strife is to be the last of their worries, for soon this small cul-de-sac in the North West of England will become a battle for survival as something is loose and on the kill, and the army has got itchy trigger fingers...
It's perfectly understandable that some horror lovers come out of watching Salvage immensely disappointed at getting yet another spin on the "creature/infected human/zombie on the loose" formula. There's nothing exactly fresh here in terms of plotting, but considering the minimalist budget and sparsity of production aids, first time director Lawrence Gough has done a bang up job with this picture. The suspense factor is high, where McIntosh's (excellent) frantic mother tries to stay alive long enough to rescue her daughter from a house just across the road. Something which sounds simple in premise, but as the film unfolds, this proves to be a tense, fraught and nail biting mission. While the fact that the two main characters have been humanised, deep flaws and all, puts added spice to the survivalist horror.
As Mcintosh and Dooley (very good), the latter a one night stand liaison forced into the battle for survival along with some self examination, prowl around with fear and stoic bravado, themes of paranoia, prejudice and military over-kill slide easily alongside the jolts and blood. Nothing is crowbarred in here, the gore is kept in check and the politico rumblings remain just that, rumblings and not vociferous lectures over the loud speakers.Read more ›
It makes very good use of its locations, as the housing estate becomes a dark, claustrophobic hunting ground for the creature on the loose. Beth, the mother, is an interesting character, who finds hidden strengths in adversity. She is reluctantly aided by her lover Keiran, who also digs deep to find his courage. Neve McIntosh and Shaun Dooley are both very good in these roles. Despite its short running time, the film can meander at times, but it is punctuated by scenes of great tension. All in all another very fine addition to the modern British horror renaissance.
By age 13, I had long grown out of my `Dr. Who' stage, and The Nightmare Man kept me gripped. After seeing the TV show, I read the re-issued novel, originally titled: Child Of Vodyanoi, by David Wiltshire.
Salvage has some similar themes to The Nightmare Man: a military secret, soldiers struggling to wipe out that which is prowling and killing indiscriminately, with the locals fearing if they are dealing with either a psychopath or a savage creature. Salvage was filmed on the same Merseyside TV set as the old and now cancelled British TV soap: Brookside. The plot is simple: a container found on a beach during Christmas Eve makes the news due to dead bodies also discovered at the scene. Soon the inhabitants of a cul-de-sac are contained in their homes by a team of soldiers ready to shoot anything they see moving. Among the chaos, a troubled mother fights to save her estranged daughter who is trapped in a nearby house. Can she get to her daughter without falling victim to either a soldier's bullet, or the deadly `something' that is stalking the area ... which, disappointingly just turns out to be a guy with a gunky face!
A pity about Salvage; I wanted to like it. It was okay compared with so many other low-budget movies, but it ultimately lacked the way so many smaller-scale movies do: poor script, insufficient budget, some incoherent dialogue, and, despite the running around, a lot of screaming, and large helpings of blood and gore - there is a distinct lack of suspense. The actors (notably Neve McIntosh) do the best they can with the material they have, which sadly isn't enough to lift the movie above mediocre. What could have been a welcome addition to the Dawn of the Dead / 28 Days Later genre finally came across as a bargain-basement offering that failed to deliver.
