Day of the Stranger – the only British Guerrilla Acid Western ever made!

After nearly six years of obstacles and hardship, with a traumatic behind the scenes story as dramatic as the movie itself DAY OF THE STRANGER finally looks set to be unleashed upon the world.

In true guerrilla fashion film-maker Tom Lee Rutter and co. took to the sand-stoned countryside of Worcestershire to achieve the unthinkable; a West Midlands psychedelic, horror Western.

True to form what started as a group of enthusiastic individuals making a film turned into an ordeal which spanned nearly 6 years of obstacles to get the film finished.

”Several times it nearly never happened, I was ready to bury it. Everything you can imagine that went wrong went wrong – from erratic behaviour of certain individuals, constant re-shoots and re-casting to hard-drives dying on me. We had it all. Your classic underground film-making horror story.” explains director Tom Lee Rutter.

With the help of the enthusiasm of individuals and the recent involvement of new talent, new life has been breathed into the film and seen it to the finish line.

”It’s a miracle we have a film at all, but such is the journey on the front-line of underground film.”

The film is a throwback homage to the sparse run of the acid-western sub-genre which included films such as Monte Hellman’s The Shooting (1966), Alejandro Jodorowsky’s El Topo (1970) and Robert Downey’s Greaser’s Palace (1972).
Aiming for an early 2020 world premiere and starring a wealth of talent including Gary Baxter (Beyond Fury), Richard Rowbotham (White Goods) and a special appearance by Gary Shail (Quadrophenia, Metal Mickey) DAY OF THE  STRANGER looks set to offer something different to the world of cult and horror indie cinema.
