IFC Midnight has two titles hitting DVD soon that are more than appropriate viewing choices given the season! Read on to find out when you’ll be able to land yourselves copies of Beneath and Bound by Flesh. Look for them both on October 28th.
From the Press Release
BOUND BY FLESH tells the amazing story of Daisy and Violet Hilton, conjoined twins who rose to superstardom at the beginning of the 20th century as sideshow attractions, performing alongside the likes of Bob Hope and Charlie Chaplin. While most sideshow performers simply served as objects of curiosity for their passing audiences, the Hilton Sisters stood apart by putting on a full-fledged show, complete with singing, dancing and music. But they were ruthlessly exploited by their managers and ultimately sued for their freedom, which they won at a terrible cost. A gripping, roller-coaster tale of showbiz tragedy, Leslie Zemeckis’ film puts a touchingly human face on two outsiders who went from the lowest rungs of society to the big time and back again. The IFC Films theatrical release was an audience favorite at the Chicago Film Festival and Palm Springs International Film Festival and was named Best Documentary at the Hollywood Film Festival. Elizabeth Weitzman of the New York Daily News called it “vibrant and fascinating. Zemeckis brings generosity and compassion to the Hiltons’ tragic story. One wishes they were able to see the movie themselves.”
Veteran coal miner George Marsh (Jeff Fahey, Planet Terror, Machete, Under the Dome) is about to retire, and he’s giving his daughter Samantha (Kelly Noonan, Road to Paloma) a tour of the mine on his last day. Six hundred feet below the surface, a catastrophic collapse traps George, Samantha and a crew of miners, with rescue workers not expected to reach them for 72 hours. But the drill strike that caused the disaster also opens a hole into an unknown chamber, and before long the crew suspects they might not be alone. With their oxygen supply steadily depleting, George and Samantha must figure out a way to stay alive as resources become scarce and the danger rises. Inspired by true events, BENEATH is a claustrophobic, bleak and terrifying look at humanity in its deepest, darkest places. The IFC Midnight theatrical release won six awards at the 2013 Screamfest, for best picture, director, cinematography, special effects, makeup and visual effects. “Director Ben Ketai does a masterful job propelling the action while winding his ever-diminishing cast through tighter and murkier spaces,” said Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times.
- virgo02 I really liked the movie when it came out and I still do. I just watched it the other day. I still can't believe they took away the sibling part of the movie. That too me made it more suspenseful. The...
- Nick Greeley Nice clickbait. It’s OLD news that H20 started as a passion project for her, but everything fell apart when Carpenter and Hill didn’t come back, and Moustapha Akkad refused to let the writers kill...
- Mackey Would be awesome if Amazon or Netflix could save "The Exorcist" too
- One-Eye I remember it as being one of the better post SCREAM slasher movies. I certainly haven't watched it since then.
- One-Eye I kind of dig how Osment is just like "Yeah, I'm fat and have a big, bushy beard. And that's how I'm gonna stay now..."
