'Amer' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Jul 27, 2011 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The 2009 Belgian homage to Italian giallo horror films is planned for Blu-ray this October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Olive Films has revealed 'Amer' will be available on Blu-ray on October 4.

Three key moments, all of them sensual, define Ana's life. Her carnal search sways between reality and colored fantasies becoming more and more oppressive. A black laced hand prevents her from screaming. The wind lifts her dress and caresses her thighs. A razor blade brushes her skin, where will this chaotic and carnivorous journey leave her?

The film has already won numerous awards including The Blade at the Sweden Fantastic Film Festival, Best Director (Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani) at the Málaga International Week of Fantastic Cinema, and has even been hailed by Quentin Tarantino as one of his 20 favorite films of 2010.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include five short movies by Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani and introductory notes from the filmmakers.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray will be $34.95.
