UK horror-themed VOD platform TheHorrorShow.TV has announced its first foray into physical distribution, having picked up Lucky McKee’s acclaimed The Woman for release on DVD, Blu-ray and Limited Edition Steelbook across the UK on 18 August, sporting a brand new audio commentary!
From the Press Release:
Commenting on the VOD platform’s new venture, TheHorrorShow.TV’s David Hughes said, “Having celebrated our site’s first birthday by uploading our 200th horror film, we are hugely excited about this new acquisition, which heralds our entry into the physical market with a lavish all-formats edition of Lucky McKee’s brilliant 2011 horror film The Woman.”
He added, “Of course, TheHorrorShow.TV is primarily a digital platform, but the physical side of film distribution shows no signs of slowing down, and we want to give horror fans as much choice as possible about how they consume their favourite genre.”
The film’s director, Lucky McKee, commented: “I am delighted THE WOMAN has found a new home in the UK with TheHorrorShow.TV. With this new edition, fans will get a chance to watch the film along with me, as I have recorded a brand new commentary track within the home that inspired the story.”
Andrew van den Houten, who produced the film through his ModerncinÃ© company, added: “ModerncinÃ© is thrilled to be bringing The Woman back to audiences in the UK with our new partnership with TheHorrorShow.TV.”
TheHorrorShow.TV will offer the film as a digital exclusive and plans to include the film in its forthcoming subscription service, which will make many of the existing 200+ films available at TheHorrorShow.TV â€“ including many digital exclusives â€“ available to subscribers for Â£4.99 per month.
TheHorrorShow.TV is the UK’s first dedicated Video On-Demand service specialising in horror and fantasy films, offering a selection of genre titles ranging from blockbuster horror hits to cult classics, underground indies and selected short films â€“ all available to stream or download to home computers and Android/iOS-based smart phones.
Could this be the UK’s Netflix for horror once the subscription service kicks off? Only time will tell, but it certainly looks promising!
