Here’s the thing… if you make the wrong decision at the wrong place at the wrong time, you can bring down the possibility of ending up on the cold side of the slab. Never has that fact been better illustrated than in Walter Hill’s backwoods masterpiece Southern Comfort.
From the Press Release
Shout! Factory brings you the 1981 thriller Southern Comfort on Blu-ray for the first time, featuring a new high definition transfer, with bonus features including a theatrical trailer, still gallery, and ‘The Making of Southern Comfort’ featuring new interviews with director/writer Walter Hill, producer/writer David Giler and actors Keith Carradine, Powers Boothe, Peter Coyote and Lewis Smith.
From Walter Hill, the director of The Warriors and 48 Hrs., comes this gut-wrenching tale of backwoods terror that “draws you into the eerily beautiful Louisiana bayou…then has you running for your life” (Pauline Kael, New Yorker)! Keith Carradine (The Duellists) and Powers Boothe (Sin City, The Avengers) lead a “first-rate ensemble” (Newsweek) in this “exciting, arresting and tautly told suspenser” (Variety).
Nine National Guardsmen enter the Louisiana swamp for routine training, but an error in judgment by one of the team incites an all-out war with some angry Cajuns who know the territory like the backs of their hands. Armed with a precious few bullets, and confused by the dimly lit, moss-covered maze into which they’ve stumbled, the guardsmen know they’ll be picked off one by one, until they come up with a solution using the only resources they have left…their wits.
The film also stars Fred Ward (Tremors, 2 Guns), T.K. Carter (The Thing), Peter Coyote (Jagged Edge) and Brion James (Blade Runner).
