Overview

Eoin McNamee based the screenplay for this drama on his own novel, which was itself based on real-life Protestant paramilitaries known as "The Shankill Butchers," who used the cover of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland to mask their often homicidal crimes. Set in Northern Ireland of 1975, the story opens with a killing by young psycho Victor Kelly Stuart Townsend and his gang, known as the Resurrection Men. The city lives in fear, and TV coverage perks the interest of journalist Ryan James Nesbitt and his associate Coppinger James Ellis. Older hood McLure Sean McGinley hires Victor and his gang to do some dirty work, but local cop Herbie Derek Thompson enters the picture to put pressure on gang member Hascksaw B.J. Hogg. As Victor's wildness escalates, Ryan uses words to weave a media myth around Victor's behavior. Meanwhile, McLure makes plans to destroy Victor. The Irish settings for this film actually were shot in Manchester, Warringon, and Liverpool.
