It has been a long while coming but finally David Blyth's Wound is set for a U.S. release. The shocker from New Zealand will see a DVD release from Breaking Glass Pictures imprint Vicious Circle Films on March 6th. I can tell you right now that it is powerful viewing and I will have a review posted very soon. In the meantime you can check out the trailer below.
Legendary director Ken Russell (Oscar-winning Women in Love, The Devils, The Who’s Tommy, Altered States) hailed Wound as a “romantically charged Gothic psycho-sexual horror tale.” He championed the film as a “masterpiece,” pointing out the “gorgeous images and repulsive dream-surgery into the recesses of female consciousness.”
Wound breaks all barriers as it explores the dark worlds of mental illness, incest, revenge and death. The film follows Tanya as she searches for Susan, the mother she has never met – a mother who gave her up for dead after Tanya was brutally abused by her own father. Tanya returns from the grave to confront and possess Susan with all her deepest fears and desires, sending her mother into a state of madness and gore filled retribution. A young woman alone attempts to fight the demons that begin to haunt her days and nights -- in a series of brutal confrontations with the enemies of the past that want to possess and kill her.
“Wound” has shown nationally and internationally in festivals such as Fantasia FF and Fright Fest London. It has been awarded best female performance for Kate O’Rourke, best director, and best film at “A Night of Horror International Film Festival. As 2011 came to a close, Woundfeatured prominently on many horror critics’ “Best Films of the Year” list.
The DVD release will come fully stocked with numerous special features such as director David Blyth’s short film “Circadian Rhythms”, and music videos for “Damn Laser Vampires” and “Knot Time”, the official theme song for the film.
