Shout Factory has detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of director Walter Hill's Southern Comfort (1981), starring Keith Carradine, Powers Boothe and Fred Ward. The release will be available for purchase on July 8th.
Synopsis: Walter Hill's action thriller has been interpreted as an allegory for the Vietnam war. While on an exercise in Louisiana, a group of National Guard members steal some canoes from the local Cajuns. Pursued by the angry locals, one of the men decides to fire at them, albeit with blanks. The Cajuns respond with real bullets, killing the team's commander, Poole (Peter Coyote). The men, none of whom are real soldiers, are now forced to fight for their lives.

I love this movie. The music by Ry Cooder is so awesome. This is a must buy. Also can't go wrong wirth Walter Hill. I even liked Bullet to the Head. And of course a rare chance for Powers Boothe NOT to play the villain
