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

    Watch a City Come Together and a Monster Created in These Videos From The Sinking City

    Published

    on

    I’ve been keeping a very close eye on Frogwares’ The Sinking City, which is a 3rd person horror adventure that takes place in a world that is as inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes as it is by H.P. Lovecraft and his eldritch terrors. While still early in development, the team is beginning to share some pretty incredible things out of their offices (like these creepy statues) to keep the public up-to-date as well as show them just how much work goes into creating something so expansive and fascinating.

    Today, I want to bring you a taste of the world that Frogwares is building through two videos. The first shows the process by which they created the actual city that the game takes place in. Obviously trying to hand create each and every building is a tedious process at best, nigh-well impossible task at its most realistic. Rather than attempt such a monumental undertaking, the team created a program that will build the city based on criteria that they set forth. It’s a very clever solution to a very real problem and the end result still feels like their personal touch is all over it.

    The second video is a 3D time lapse of a monster as it goes from rough shape to a highly detailed, grotesquely designed monstrosity that is nothing short of nightmarish. It’s a chance to see how an artist creates something phenomenal from something so simple, each step adding a new layer of sickening, yet fascinating, macabre horror.

    Jim Carrey and The Grinch Go Beyond Whoville

    Published

    on

    Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a regular holiday staple in many households, including my own. The cartoon is just brilliant; and truth be told, the live action film captured a great deal of the magic infused within the original tale due in no small part to an electric and manic portrayal of the title character by Jim Carrey.

    A new video has surfaced courtesy of Nerdist that’s a joyous play on the Netflix flick Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton. Check it out below. It’s SO worth your time.
