Scream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, has confirmed that it plans to bring to Blu-ray director Antonia Bird's Ravenous (1999), starring Guy Pearce, Robert Carlyle, David Arquette, Jeffrey Jones, Jeremy Davies, and John Spencer. The release is expected to arrives on the U.S. market in June.
Synopsis: The Sierra Nevada mountains, 1847. A bedraggled stranger (Robert Carlyle) stumbles into Fort Spencer, claiming to be Colquoun, a settler who has been trapped in a mountain cave by a snowstorm. He reports that his fellow cave-dwellers have been reduced to cannibalism and that he was lucky to escape with his life. Captain John Boyd (Guy Pearce) and his army colleagues accompany Colquoun back to the cave, only to uncover a far more grisly version of events. With a score by Michael Nyman and Blur's Damon Albarn.
About time ! This is a very under rated movie . It will be nice to upgrade my 1999 Fox DVD . It has mediocre picture quality and isn't enhanced for 16:9 televisions . But I will say that is some bad cover art . Hopefully it will be changed before release .
He was LICKING ME!
One of my all time favorites! Another DVD bites the dust (unless some of the features aren't ported over)!
Ravenous was one of the first DVDs I ever bought back in 1999, and it cost $27.99 back then!
HOLY CRAP!! I thought I'd be waiting many more years for this one. My #1 most wanted title on Blu!!! Such an underrated film. The cinematography is gorgeous!! Can't wait to see it in HD. Oh, and that score!!! Love it, love it, love it!
