OMFG is October 5th going to be one of the best days this year. My Blu-ray playing will take a beating as there are several titles getting high-def releases for Halloween. While Vivendi is releasing the Aussie slasher Wolf Creek, Lionsgate is unloading The Blair Witch Project, Alex Aja's bloody High Tension, the Hitchcockian indie Open Water (and its sequel), the Ellen Page starrer Hard Candy and even Tim Sullivan's 2001 Maniacs remake! Details inside.
In addition, also arriving on October 5th, starring Academy Award nominee Ellen Page (Best Actress in a Leading Role, Juno, 2007) in her breakout role, Hard Candy hits shelves on Blu-ray Disc.
Hard Candy Synopsis:
This edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller is directed by David Slade (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) and features Patrick Wilson and Ellen Page. Precocious 14-year-old Hayley probably shouldn't be going to a local coffee shop to meet Jeff, a 30-something fashion photographer she met on the Internet. But before she knows it, she's mixing drinks at Jeff's place and stripping for an impromptu photo shoot. It seems to be Jeff's lucky night. But Hayley isn't as innocent as she looks, and the night takes a turn when she begins to impose a hard-hitting investigation on Jeff in an attempt to reveal his possibly scandalous past. Special features include two separate audio commentaries with the filmmakers and the actors, deleted and extended scenes, a making-of documentary and the "Controversial Confection" mini-featurette.
