Here’s a pretty cool story to help wind our Hump Day to a close.

You may not have seen the movie Serena and the RATTS, but you’ve now got more of a chance to do so. Originally released on the indie and film festival circuit a couple years ago, the feature film was just released digitally (iTunes, Netflix, Amazon and the like) and on DVD, courtesy of Indican Pictures, who also brought you The Boondock Saints.

Filmed in and around Boston, the film “follows Serena, a young contract killer on her mission to take out a team of scientists who have discovered the ability to time travel.  When her adversaries prove to be exercising their new-found abilities, she must team up with an underground renegade group, The RATTS, before the course of history is changed forever.” Perhaps most importantly for punk fans, the soundtrack to the movie also includes the likes of Lenny Lashley’s Gang of One, Lenny’s old band Darkbuster, Joey Briggs, River City Rebels and more.

Lenny Lashley makes acting debut in female-fronted action film (music by Joey Briggs, Darkbuster, more)

Lenny Lashley (Darkbuster) has made what appears to be his acting debut in the award winning new independent action film “Serena and the Ratts.” Here’s a brief film synopsis (Kill Bill fans will enjoy:)

“Influenced by femme fatales from Luc Besson and reminiscent of interpretive films from David Lynch, Kevin James Barry’s unconventional arthouse-meets-action film exposes the gritty consequences of life’s choices, and challenges audiences to draw their own conclusions on what is real, what is dream and what is a life never lived.”

Additionally, the soundtrack looks to be almost entirely made up of punk bands including Joey Briggs, River City Rebels, Bloodshot Hooligans, and music from Lenny and his band Darkbuster.

The film received special recognition for its director Kevin James Barr and took home “Best Action Feature” at the Bare Bones International Film and Music Festival. Look no further for a trailer.
