Second Sight to bring on the 'Southern Comfort' - New Blu-ray and DVD details

On November 26th Second Sight Films will be releasing the wonderful Southern Comfort on limited edition Blu-ray, as well as DVD. This news makes me very happy, as it is one of my favorite films. Events take a turn for the worse when a group of the National Guard end up upsetting the locals in the Louisiana bayou. The release will include a 45 mnute interview with director Walter Hill. Terrific cast, excellent movie. More details below.

From the director of The Warriors comes one of the biggest cult films of the 80s –Southern Comfort – which makes its Blu-ray debut courtesy of Second Sight Films.

Legendary director Walter Hill’s action thriller follows a platoon of weekend soldiers as they embark on routine manoeuvres and end up fighting the battle of their lives. This gripping cult thriller comes to Blu-ray with sumptuous limited edition packaging as well as a DVD release and includes a rare interview with Walter Hill who discusses the film in the 45 minute feature 'Will He Live or Will He Die'. It will be available on 26 November 2012.

A routine training exercise in the Louisiana bayou becomes an all too real war of attrition when a unit of brash National Guardsmen unwittingly upset a group of Cajun hunters. Lost in unknown territory and armed with little more than blank ammo, the part-time soldiers face a terrifying battle for survival against an unforgiving enemy hidden deep in the heart of the swampland.
Southern Comfort stars Keith Carradine (Cowboys and Aliens) and Powers Boothe (Avengers Assemble) and features an exceptional score by guitarist Ry Cooder. A must have for all film fans!
