A few big movies are arriving on home video this week, including a pair of big screen adaptations of popular older TV shows (one much older than the other) and a 20-years-in-the-making sequel to a Danny Boyle classic. Read on for the full list.
Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch star in this indie horror film about a father-son team of coroners who gradually uncover a terrifying secret as they perform an autopsy on an anonymous cadaver. The only special features available are various teasers, trailers, and TV spots.
Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, and Kelly Macdonald reprise their roles in Danny Boyle’s late sequel to his 1996 dark comedy, following up with the same characters 20 years later in life. It comes with a commentary track featuring Byle and screenwriter John Hodge, deleted scenes, and a “20 Years in the Making” featurette.
James Gunn (writer/director of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies) wrote this dark thriller about a group of office workers in Colombia who are forcibly trapped in their building and instructed to kill each other or be killed themselves. Extras include a behind-the-scenes look, deleted scenes, an image gallery, and a short feature by animator Lee Hardcastle.
In this big screen reboot of the franchise based on the popular TV series, five high schoolers discover an ancient power source that grants them superpowers, which they must learn to harness in order to defeat an evil from the past. Special features include a commentary track, a collection of featurettes, deleted/alternate/extended scenes, and outtakes, and you can also purchase the film in a bundle with one of five Battle Zords.
Dax Shepard and Michael Peña star in this adaptation of the 1980s cop show about a pair of California Highway Patrol officers who team up to uncover a ring of corruption within the department. It comes with a trio of featurettes and a commentary track with Shepard (who also directed).
Lastly, we have two selections from Criterion, beginning with this early Alfred Hitchcock feature (his third), a silent thriller about a young man whose sudden appearance in a new town coincides with several serial murders. The release comes with another silent Hitchcock film, Downhill; excerpts from audio interviews with Hitchcock; a radio adaptation of the film from 1940; and more.
Then, we also have a 4K transfer of Sam Peckinpah’s controversial thriller, starring Dustin Hoffman and Susan George as a married couple terrorized by local men hired to repair their new home. It comes with a 2003 documentary about the making of the film, a 1993 documentary on Peckinpah, archival interviews with George, and more.
