British distributors Metrodome Video will bring to Blu-ray director Shane Carruth's Upstream Color (2013), starring Amy Seimetz, Frank Mosley, Shane Carruth, Carolyn King, and Thiago Martins. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is December 30th.
When Kris (Seimetz), a graphics designer, is unfortunate enough to find herself the subject of the attentions of a thief (Martins) who employs somewhat unusual methods, her life rapidly goes downhill. In order to get her to transfer her savings to him, the thief implants a parasitic organism into Kris then leaves her to the equally unfavourable attentions of a pig farmer, who transfuses the parasite from Kris into a pig, creating a subliminal connection between the woman and animal. Kris awakes from the traumatic experience with little recollection of what has happened but is fortunate to meet Jeff (Caruth), who has been the victim of the same process. Will the pair be able to work together to discover what has happened to them?
I hope this release gets a flawless audio presentation. Carruth's score is fantastic, but it's a real shame the US release is marred by audio sync/timing issues in a few places. It might not matter to some, but it drastically affects the experience for me.
I would love to see this movie, unfortunately I have a serious issue with the worms they use (I assume it's the parasitic organism...). I know it's irrational, but what can I do?
How much do they show these worms throughout the movie?
Based on the cover it looks doubtful... However, it is absolutely worst with the type of worms they use in Upstream Color. While most other worms (or other creepy crawlies) might be icky I can usually handle seeing them in movies, but those hard, white worms brrrrrrrr.
I started watching a movie MANY years ago (after a bit of searching I think it is The Curse from 1987), that I simply couldn't finish because of the way they had/used these type or worms in it.
