Mike Flanagan's Absentia Heading to UK Blu-ray in JulyBack in 2011 my best of the year list was topped by Mike Flanagan’s Absentia, and with his follow-up, Oculus, in theatres now, it’s good to see a little love being shown to his award-winning breakthrough film as it hits UK Blu-ray for the first time.

From the Press Release:
One of the most frightening films of recent years, Mike Flanagan’s critically acclaimed Absentia makes its UK Blu-ray debut courtesy of Second Sight Films. A new DVD release is on its way as well, with both hitting stores on 7 July.

Synopsis:
Tricia’s (Courtney Bell) husband, Daniel, has been missing for seven years, and with the help of her sister, Callie (Katie Parker), she finally declares him legally dead ‘in absentia.’ As Tricia tries to move on with her life, she becomes haunted by terrifying visions, while Callie is strangely drawn to an ominous tunnel near the house with links to other unexplained disappearances.

Does the key to Daniel’s fate lie in the cold darkness of the tunnel, and could the truth be something far worse than death?

Bonus Features:

  • Audio commentary with director/producer Mike Flanagan and producers Morgan Peter Brown, Joe Wicker, and Justin Gordon
  • Audio commentary with Mike Flanagan and cast members Katie Parker, Courtney Bell, Dave Levine, and Doug Jones
  • ‘Absentia: A Retrospective’ documentary
  • Camera Test
  • Deleted Scenes

    Charles Manson. The name alone lives on in infamy even long after his physical remains lay rotting… and rightly so. A new docudrama entitled Charles Manson: The Final Words is on its way, and we have new details and behind-the-scenes imagery for you. Check it out!

    The flick made its premiere on the REELZ Channel, and Breakthrough Entertainment has announced that they’ve acquired worldwide distribution rights to the project that features narration from Rob Zombie and is home to the final interview given by America’s most notorious and now deceased cult-leader and mass murderer, Charles Manson.

    The opportunity that we have to offer this distinct and truly unique documentary to our international clients is beyond exciting for Breakthrough Entertainment,” said Craig McGillivray, Vice President, Distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment. “We are continuously focused on sourcing captivating new premium content that pushes the envelope and generates mass attention such as this amazing film from James Buddy Day and Pyramid Productions.

    The two-hour film narrated by musician Zombie focuses on the so-called Manson family murders told from Manson’s perspective using never-before-seen case files, pictures, and exclusive interviews with Manson himself from inside California State Prison. The feature documentary reveals new details that unveil the true story and motives behind the grisly murder spree. The audio used in the doc contains the last recorded interviews with the infamous killer conducted by director and producer James Buddy Day.

    It has been a truly distinct project for us and an experience that very few producers encounter. This film has the potential to captivate global audiences, and we are very excited to have Breakthrough Entertainment on board to share this one-of-a-kind documentary,” says James Buddy Day, Executive Producer at Pyramid Productions.

    Look for more on this one soon!
