'Accident' on Blu-ray in June

Posted Mon May 7, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Shout! Factory delivers the thriller 'Accident' on Blu-ray June 12.

In 'Accident,' self-styled accident choreographer, Brain (Louis Koo, in one of the most compelling performances of his career) is a professional hit man who kills his victims by trapping them in well crafted accidents that look like unfortunate mishaps but are in fact perfectly staged acts of crime. He is perennially plagued with guilt, as the avalanche of memories of his lost wife does not make things any easier.

After one mission inexplicably goes wrong, costing the life of one of his men, Brain becomes convinced that this accident has been choreographed: someone is out there plotting to terminate him and his team. He becomes increasingly paranoid, not knowing whether or not to trust his friends and accomplices.

When he discovers that a mysterious insurance agent named Fong (Richie Jen, 'Exiled') is somehow related to the last staged accident, Brain becomes obsessed that this man must be the mastermind behind a conspiracy to take him out. To regain his sanity and to save his life, he must stay one step ahead of Fong before he makes his next move. Brain rents an apartment below Fong’s, bugs the rooms, then becomes obsessed with the insurance man’s comings and goings. Eventually reality and delusion blur, culminating in a wickedly twisted ending.

The release will feature a 1080p picture coupled with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The audio will include a Dolby Digital 5.1 Cantonese track with English subtitles.

Special features will include a Behind-the-Scenes Featurette and a theatrical trailer.

The suggested retail price is $26.97.
