CONTEST CLOSED! UK Readers: Bag a Blu-ray Copy of Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs

Post Thumb:


With the ill-fated remake having suffered a less than stellar performance at the US box office, Sam Peckinpah’s original classic thriller Straw Dogs has now been treated to a remastered Blu-ray release in the UK courtesy of FremantleMedia Enterprises. To mark the occasion, we’ve found ourselves with two copies of this new high-def treat to give away!

Coinciding with its 40th anniversary and the remake by Rod Lurie for Screen Gems, director Sam Peckinpah’s notorious thriller Straw Dogs has been carefully restored and remastered for release on two-disc DVD and for the first time ever as a features-packed Special Edition Blu-ray on 24th October 2011.

Discover more about the original in a series of articles running on, which include reactions to the remake plus details of a screening of the original at The Barbican in London on 9th November.

And for your shelf we have copies of the Blu-ray to give away for two lucky winners.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply send us an E-MAIL HERE including YOUR FULL NAME AND POSTAL ADDRESS. We’ll take care of the rest.

Please note that this competition is open only to UK readers.

    Aw sweet extras; the fact the US release has none has kept me from buying it. Definitely will be buying this…but can’t find anything of which code it is. Is it code free or locked?

      I’m not sure, but since it says PAL on Amazon, doesn’t that mean it’s region-locked? Or will a US player play a PAL disc?

        If it was DVD yes, but Blu-Ray only has three ‘Codes’ A, B, C; the US is A and UK is B. most Blu-Rays though are code free.
