'Road House: Collector's Edition' Planned for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Jul 25, 2016 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Patrick Swayze will be bustin' heads in glorious HD this September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory will be releasing 'Road House: Collector's Edition' on Blu-ray on September 6.

Dalton (Patrick Swayze) is the best bar bouncer in the business, but he's anything but "typical." He's a little small for his trade, has a degree in philosophy and he believes in "being nice." But when he's hired to clean up the Double Deuce in the small town of Jasper, he's pushed to his breaking point.

Turns out Jasper is controlled by an evil sadist (Ben Gazzara) who doesn't want anyone meddling with "his" town. After he sends his goons to bust up the Double Deuce, all hell breaks loose.

Now it's "no more nice guy" for Dalton as he starts busting heads, leading him to the all-time, no-holds-barred showdown of the century.

The Blu-ray will feature a new 2K Scan of the interpositive, supervised and approved by director of photography Dean Cundey and supplements will include: Audio Commentary by director Rowdy Herrington; Audio Commentary by Road House fans Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier; NEW The Making of Road House – interviews with director Rowdy Herrington, actors Kelly Lynch, John Doe, Kevin Tighe, Julie Michaels, Red West, Lisa Niemi Swayze, casting director Jackie Burch, director of photography Dean Cundey, editor Frank Urioste and more…; NEW Remembering Patrick – interviews with Lisa Niemi Swayze, Rowdy Herrington, Terry Funk, Kelly Lynch, Marshall R.
