Every time we think about The Raid: Redemption, all we want to do is re-watch it immediately. And pretty soon we’ll be able to in glorious 1080p so every limb, chunk of flesh, blood spatter, and bone break will be brought to life in incredible detail!

From the Press Release
Iko Uwais and Joe Taslim star as members of a rookie SWAT team tasked to infiltrate a safe house containing the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters in the hard-hitting, jaw-dropping, martial arts action extravaganza The Raid: Redemption, coming to Unrated DVD and Blu-ray™ with UltraViolet™ August 14th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. When the SWAT team’s cover is accidentally blown, they become stranded inside the dangerous high-rise with no way out and must fight their way through the city’s worst criminals to survive their mission. The film also stars Ray Sahetapy, Donny Alamsyah, Yayan Ruhian, and Pierre Gruno and features an English dub with music by Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda. Both discs also include the original language track and music.

The DVD and Blu-ray™ are loaded with bonus features, including commentary with writer/director Gareth Evans; six behind-the-scenes video blogs with Gareth Evans; a “Behind the Music” featurette with Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and composer Joe Trapanese; “Inside the Score,” a trailer teaser for Mike Shinoda’s first feature score, and “An Evening with Gareth Evans, Mike Shinoda and Joe Trapanese” feaurette. Also included are four featurettes in “Conversation with Gareth Evans and Mike Shinoda” on the hard shoot, score, stunts, and themes, as well as “An Anatomy of a Scene,” in which Gareth Evans talks in detail about creating the hole drop scene. “THE RAID TV Show Ad (circa 1994)” is a spoof of a 1994 Japanese anime TV commercial created by Phil Askin, with the idea that Gareth Evans may have seen it as a child and set off to make a live action version one day. Finally, “Claycat’s The Raid” features Lee Hardcastle’s UK claymation short film with a Mike Shinoda music score.

Synopsis
Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, they find themselves stranded on the 6th floor with no way out. The unit must fight their way through the city’s worst to survive their mission.

The Raid was directed and written by Gareth Evans. It was produced by Ario Sagantoro, with Rangga Maya Barack-Evans, Nathaniel Bolotin, Todd Brown, Irwan D. Musry, Nick Spicer and Aram Tertzakian serving as executive producers.

    Inside Remake Gets New Poster and U.S. Release Date

    Published

    on

    It’s about time.

    It has been a whopping four months since we shared with you guys the red band trailer for the upcoming English language remake of Inside starring Rachel Nichols and Laura Harring.

    Today we have an all-new poster for the film (via our buddies at Arrow in the Head), and the one-sheet also boasts the remake’s U.S. release date. Yes, Inside will be hitting Stateside on January 12, 2018.

    You can click on the poster to the right to check it out in higher-res. After that make sure to hit us up and let us know if you’re planning to check out this remake in the comments below!

    Miguel Ángel Vivas directed the Inside remake.

    Produced by Adrian Guerra and Nuria Valls at Spain’s Nostromo Pictures, the remake was written by Manu Diez and [REC] creator/co-director Jaume Balaguero. “We took the original idea and made it an edge-of-your-seat thriller, more Hitchcock-ian than a splatter-fest,” said Guerra.

    Again, Inside hits U.S. theaters and VOD January 12, 2018.

    Synopsis:
    Pregnant and depressed, a young widow tries to rebuild her life following the fateful car accident where she lost her husband and partially lost her hearing. Now, about to go into labor, she’s living in a remote house in the suburbs when, one Christmas night, she receives an unexpected visit from another woman with a devastating objective: to rip the child she’s carrying from inside her. But a mother’s fury when it comes to protecting her child should never be underestimated.

    Deep Blue Sea 2 Rated R for Creature Violence/Gore and Language

    Published

    on

    Five months ago we shared the news that there was a secret sequel to the 1999 killer sharks vs. Tom Jane and LL Cool J movie Deep Blue Sea filming, and today we have the sequel’s rating.

    And it’s about what you’d expect. Not that that’s a bad thing.

    Yes, the upcoming shark attack sequel Deep Blue Sea 2 has been rated R by the MPAA for “creature violence and gore and for language.”

    Not only that, but we have a few words on what we can expect from the sequel via a creative executive over at Warner Bros. named Matt Bierman.

    “We are a true sequel,” Bierman said regarding the sequel. “We wanted to keep to the spirit of Deep Blue Sea and why people love it. The research that was used on the sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2 comes from the mythology and storyline of the first movie. We have given the lead shark a personality and hope the fans will embrace that as it really helps the storytelling and the narrative in a way that [the] first one didn’t. Deep Blue Sea 2 has a slightly slower build, but once the rubber band snaps, things go boom really quickly!”

    The lead shark has a personality? How could that be a bad thing?

    Let’s just hope there aren’t scenes of the rugged Tom Jane stand-in lovingly hugging/stroking the shark after it does something cool and telling the new guy how the shark (nicknamed Bruce) is just “misunderstood.”

    …And then the shark saves everyone at the end. Called it.

    The sequel is directed by Darin Scott from a screenplay by Erik Patterson, Hans Rodionoff, and Jessica Scott and stars Danielle Savre, Rob Mayes, and Michael Beach.

    The movie is set to premiere on Syfy sometime next year. Once we know the exact date we’ll let us know so stay tuned!

    “Deepest. Bluest. My head is like a shark’s fin…”

    Friends Don’t Let Friends Review – A Haunting Mixture of Psychological Turmoil and Brutal Supernatural Horror

    Published

    on

    Starring Brittany Anne Woodford, Jenny Curtis, Kanin Guntzelman, Brendan McGowan, Jake White

    Directed by James S. Brown

    We all like to think of ourselves as being surrounded by friends, but let’s face it, if we were to ever truly hit hard times, there are probably very few, if any, people we could truly rely on. So on some level, Friends Don’t Let Friends is a film we can all relate too, as it deals with this very issue.

    Stephanie is an emotionally unstable young woman who strangles her boyfriend to death after he insults and breaks up with her. She calls her friends to help her dispose the body out in the Joshua Tree National Part area, and instead of reporting her to the police, they reluctantly comply. As their car breaks down, the four friends find themselves alone at night in the Californian wilderness with the rotting corpse in need of disposal. Given their dire circumstances, they begin to become more and more aggressive towards each other, and this was where the film was really at its best. I was on the edge of my seat, wondering how far the limits of their friendship could be stretched, and who would be the first to crack and turn on the others.

    Anyway, their body disposal endeavor soon proves to be a mistake, as Stephanie’s ex rises from the grave as vengeful zombie demon thing with claws as long as knives. I’ll admit, I first I thought Friends Don’t Let Friends was going to be a movie purely about the limits of trust, so I was pretty surprised when the supernatural elements came into play. And when they did, the trust and friendship elements of the plot were somewhat downplayed in favor of a more traditional horror approach, and while it was still entertaining, I still would have preferred for the film not to have strayed from its initial path. At least the ending came as a shocker. I won’t go into spoilers, but let’s just say the even the most attentive viewers probably won’t see it coming.

    As you can probably guess from a psychologically-driven film of this kind, the performances were top notch, with Brittany Anne Woodford being on particularly top form as the manipulative and unstable Stephanie, a character who revels in the revels in the power she felt when ending another human life.

    With its mixture of psychological turmoil and brutal supernatural horror, Friends Don’t Let Friends is a film I would certainly recommend, but keep in mind that it may make you think twice when confiding in people who you think of as being your friends.

    8 out of 10.
