Screener Squad: The Standoff at Sparrow Creek

We’ve had a good run of debut writer/director films lately and this seems to be no exception. Frank and Lara take the lead on this review of The Standoff at Sparrow Creek, a dark and tense thriller shot in Dallas, Texas. The story follows around James Badge Dale playing a former police officer and militiaman who is brought out of retirement after a mass shooting at a police funeral. Things only get worse when he realizes that the shooter is very likely one of the members from his old militia. To ensure that there are no further shootings or copycats after this incident, Dale secludes the group into an old lumber mill to interrogate them and find the killer. Can they convince Justin to watch this movie? We shall have to find out!
