Default A Horrible Way To Die (2010)



ANCHOR BAY TO UNLEASH A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE



Adam Wingard’s acclaimed serial killer road movie, A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE, is set for a DVD & Blu-ray release in the UK, Mar 19, 2012.

Love, death, addiction and trauma are given a bloody, twisted blend in one of the most jagged and intense thrillers of the year.

Winner of the Best Screenplay (Simon Barrett), Best Actor (AJ Bowen) and Best Actress (Amy Seimetz) at the 2010 Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, A Horrible Way To Die is Wingard’s third feature, after the promising debut Home Sick and the well-received Pop Skull.

Compared to directors such as David Lynch, Darren Aronofsky, and Shinya Tsukamoto, Wingard is regarded as one of the current trailblazers redefining the genre. His next film You’re Next, which took the 2011 Toronto Film Festival by storm, has firmly established him as a major talent for the future.



Synopsis:

Sarah (played by Amy Seimetz) is trying to start a new life thanks to the help of Alcoholics Anonymous and Kevin, her new boyfriend (played by Joe Swanberg). Her old existence fell apart when she realised the man she loved was a psychopath after accidentally finding his ‘Kill Room’. But now Garrick Turrell (AJ Bowen) has escaped from prison and the corpses start piling up as he travels a direct line from Sarah’s old life to her new one.

Release Date: 19 March 2012

I actually really enjoyed Wingard's Home Sick, so am quite interested in seeing this one.

I've not see Home Sick, but that IMDb page makes it sound pretty damn appealing!

Most people seem to hate it, but I think it's a great little film.

Completely mental, it revolves around 'Mr Suitcase' (Bill Moseley) randomly turning up at a party full of people with a suitcase full of razorblades asking each person who they hated the most. One person loses it and says he hates everyone. Everyone then gets killed off one by one in suitably gory fashion.

The film starts off as an almost supernatural slasher, and ends up as a monster movie/hillbilly shootout/(unintentional?)comedy.

Low budget aside, I found it to be a lot of fun and a great watch.

The Synapse US DVD is the only release as far as I am aware.
