One of the films I was most impressed with at last year’s Film4 Frightfest in London is Lawrence Gough’s claustrophobic creature feature Salvage (review here). Finally the flick will be slamming in with a limited UK theatrical release (along with Sky Box Office, iTunes, FilmFlex, and LOVEFilM) on March 19th. A few days later, on the 22nd, it will appear on retail shelves on DVD -- all courtesy of Revolver Entertainment.
Black Death, director Christopher Smith's follow-up to his mostly well-received Triangle, has been in process for about two years now (see our database on the film here for the full chain of events), and finally come May, 2010, Revolver Entertainment will be releasing the film in the UK.
There's a healthy amount of buzz surrounding the May 5th, 2009 DVD release of the UK import Mum & Dad, and like all cool things that you should know about and have, we're giving away a few copies!
The whole "day-and-date" concept has always sounded a bit strange to me, to be honest. Releasing a film in theaters, on DVD, and on VOD the same day doesn’t really make a lot of sense, does it? Where’s the motivation to get butts in seats if they can just head to Best Buy and enjoy the film in the privacy of their homes? Though I guess if it’ll work anywhere, it’ll work in horror.
The news came down via Variety this morning that Mum & Dad, one of those new British film that we keep hearing about but have yet to actually see, has been snapped up for distribution by Revolver Entert
