It will be released by Anchor Bay and features an audio commentary from Gens and stars Michael Biehn, Milos Ventimiglia and Michael Eklund. The movie was placed second at the prestigious Toronto After Dark Film Festival, and I for one cannot wait for it.

Beverly Hills, CA – It only took a moment for the world to change. And for those who survived, they’ll wish they hadn’t...  On April 17, Anchor Bay Entertainment dares you to witness the unnerving claustrophobic post-apocalyptic thriller The Divide. Starring Lauren German (Hostel: Part II, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) Michael Biehn (Tombstone, The Abyss, The Terminator), Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes,” Rocky Balboa), Courtney B. Vance (The Hunt for Red October, Final Destination 5), Iván González (Rich Kids), Michael Eklund (Watchmen, 88 Minutes), Ashton Holmes (“Revenge,” A History of Violence) and Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction, The Whole Nine Yards), the Anchor Bay Films release generated massive buzz at last year’s SXSW Festival and placed second at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival for Best Feature Film.  Just like the recent theatrical release, The Divide is presented unrated and uncut on Blu-ray™ and DVD. 

A sudden nuclear attack forces nine strangers into a small, decrepit apartment building basement for shelter. Trapped for days underground with no hope of rescue, and unknown horrors awaiting them outside, the group begins to descend into madness, acting out vicious bouts of psychological and physical torture upon one another. As supplies dwindle, tensions flare, and they grow increasingly deranged, each digresses into a volatile and primal state of being.  As everyone in the bunker gradually sheds the humanity they once held, even the thinnest chance of escape holds no promise of salvation on the outside.

Eight Rooks from Twitch named The Divide “far and away one of the highlights of the year,” and David Voigt from The Examiner gave it “4 out of 5 stars! A tense, claustrophic and stunning thriller.” Arrow in the Head’s John Fallon declared the film “a lean, mean and nasty little masterpiece,” while AICN Horror’s Mark L. Miller called it “truly harrowing.”

The Divide Blu-ray™/DVD combo and DVD include an audio commentary with director Xavier Gens, and actors Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia and Michael Eklund, and the theatrical trailer.
