Three New Clips Offer a Heaping Helping of Southern ComfortOn tap right now to help you get through your Tuesday are three clips from Walter Hill’s backwoods masterpiece Southern Comfort, which is on its way to Blu-ray and DVD from the lovable sickos from at the Shout! Factory. Check them out!

Southern Comfort Release Details
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, stills gallery, and ‘The Making of Southern Comfort.’

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).

Special Features

  • NEW High Definition Transfer
  • 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
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Stills Gallery

    Published

    on

    Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

    Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

    We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

    The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

    Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam

    Published

    on

    Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

    The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

    IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.
