From the Press Release: How far will one man go to protect his wife and his home? One of the grittiest and most controversial thrillers of all time and banned in the United Kingdom for over 18 years, STRAW DOGS debuts on Blu-ray Disc September 6th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Released in celebration of the film’s 40th Anniversary and in anticipation of the upcoming theatrical remake, this violent and suspenseful tale from legendary director Sam Peckinpah (The Wild Bunch, The Getaway) stars two-time Academy Award® winner Dustin Hoffman* (The Graduate, Little Fockers) and Susan George (Mandingo, The House Where Evil Dwells).
To escape the Vietnam-era chaos in the U.S., American mathematician David Sumner (Hoffman) moves with his British wife, Amy (George), to an isolated English village. Their presence provokes antagonism among the village’s men. As things escalate from routine bullying to vicious brutality, David finds his pacifist self being backed into a corner and responds in the violent and gruesome manner he abhors.
The STRAW DOGS Blu-ray has been carefully restored and is presented with all-new 5.1 audio.
