Straw Dogs remake Blu-ray and DVD details

Rod Lurie's version of Straw Dogs hits Blu-ray and DVD on December 20th, just in time for Chrimbo, from Sony Home Entertainment. I've yet to see it myself, although it doesn't appear to have received the lambasting I was expecting prior to its theatrical release. Anyway, I'll be checking it out, seeing as I did want to catch it on the big screen. Caught Drive instead.

Special Features: 

  • Commentary with Writer/Director Rod Lurie

  • Courting Controversy: Remaking a Classic

  • The Dynamics of Power: The Ensemble

  • Inside the Siege: The Ultimate Showdown

  • Creating the Sumner House: The Production Design

  • A young couple (James Marsden and Kate Bosworth) moves to a quaint southern town. Soon their perfect getaway turns out to become a living hell when dark secrets and lethal passions spiral out of control. Trapped by a pack of depraved locals led by a ruthless predator (Alexander Skarsgard, TV’s “True Blood”), they face a night of agonizing suffering and endless bloodshed. Now their only hope for survival is to become more savage than their merciless torturers. Also starring two-time Academy Award® Nominee James Woods.
