Posted Wed Jun 22, 2011 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The disturbing thriller from award-winning director Adam Wingard ('Pop Skull') comes to Blu-ray this September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay has just revealed 'A Horrible Way to Die' will have a Blu-ray release on September 6.

Forget everything you’ve ever seen in a serial killer movie and get ready for the chiller that stunned festival audiences around the world! Named one of Movieline’s Most Anticipated Films of 2011, the atmospheric thriller 'A Horrible Way to Die' was officially selected by such prestigious film festivals as Sitges, the Toronto International Film Festival, and Fantastic Fest.

Mark L. Miller from Ain’t It Cool News called 'A Horrible Way To Die' “In close and personal with a serial killer…an intimate look at how one madman can affect the lives of so many,” while Scott Weinberg from FEARnet declared it “a crafty and calmly mysterious little road thriller that earns big points for simplicity, intensity and plain old good acting, and Mike Suave from Exclaim.ca enthuses ““...so well constructed that your jaw actually drops.”

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include an audio commentary by director/editor Adam Wingard and writer/producer Simon Barratt, a behind-the-scenes featurette, and theatrical trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.99.
