Speaking of long-awaited DVD releases (sarcasm #2), Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is finally releasing The Dark (read Arrow's review here) which stars Sean Bean, Maria Bello, Sophie Stuckey and Maurice Roeves. The plot sounds pretty damn cool. In an attempt to pull her family together, New Yorker Adelle travels with her young daughter Sarah to Wales to visit her father - James.
The morning after they arrive, Sarah mysteriously vanishes in the ocean. While they desperately search for Sarah, they find themselves involved with a little girl who seems to have retuned from the dead to show them that in order to get Sarah back, they must follow the rule: “one of the living, for one of the dead.” Sounds like a wicked good time. Here's the lowdown...
- 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen
- English Dolby Digital 5.1 track
- The only extra will be an alternate ending
No pre-order information available at the current moment...
