Ravenous for a Blu-ray Update? We Got ya Covered!The Scream Factory just offered the world a glimpse of what’s to come when Ravenous, the cult Guy Pearce-starring cannibal thriller set during the Mexican-American War, hits Blu-ray from them on June 3rd! Read on!

From the Press Release
Inspired by twisted tales of cannibalistic survival like the real-life Donner Party, cult terror feature RAVENOUS graphically depicts a twist on an old cliché: You are who you eat. Directed by the late Antonia Bird (Priest), this unnerving cult thriller stars Guy Pearce (Iron Man 3, Prometheus), Robert Carlyle (TV’s Once Upon A Time), Jeremy Davies (Lost, Saving Private Ryan), Jeffrey Jones (Deadwood, Sleepy Hollow), John Spencer (The West Wing), Stephen Spinella (MILK, Royal Pains), Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Band of Brothers) and David Arquette (Scream 4). The film has steadily and deservedly grown a large following over the last fifteen years. Beyond its darkly comic take on gruesome subject matter and some fantastic scenery and cinematography, RAVENOUS features a unique, quirky soundtrack by acclaimed composers Michael Nyman and Damon Albarn. The two contributed compositions separately, collectively serving up a musical stew combining 19th century American folk instruments, electronic sounds and orchestral flourishes; a romantic past filtered through an anxious present.

On June 3, 2014, SCREAM FACTORY™ is proud to release RAVENOUS Blu-ray™ on home entertainment shelves in the U.S and Canada. Available for the first time on Blu-ray, this highly collectible SCREAM FACTORY™ release features insightful bonus content and is priced to own with a suggested retail price of $24.97.

It’s a recipe for nonstop action and excitement when the inhabitants of an isolated military outpost go up against a marauding band of cannibals in a deadly struggle for survival! Ever watchful of the enemies who might literally tear them apart, the uneasy alliance of soldiers must fight brutal elements of the Sierra Nevada wilderness – as well as their own murderous instincts to stay alive.

Capt. Boyd (Guy Pearce), a disgraced veteran of the Mexican-American War, gets quietly shipped out to Fort Spencer, an isolated Sierra Nevada mountain outpost inhabited by a motley crew of soldiers half-mad with boredom. But then a frozen stranger named Colqhoun (Robert Carlyle) arrives spinning a terrifying tale of settlers trapped in a cave and forced to eat one another. Using the pretext of survivors needing help, Colqhoun leads many of the fort’s men into a deadly ambush, but Boyd escapes, wounded and delirious. Will he and the remaining soldiers be safe from the madman’s hunger?
