At long last, SOLOMON KANE is on DVD and Blu-Ray today!
For those of us who have been patiently waiting for the James Purefoy-starring sword and sorcery action/horror film to hit shelves, the wait is finally over as Anchor Bay and Radius-TWC has delivered the film on DVD and Blu-Ray, and to celebrate we have a very cool EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes featurette to share with you today.
Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient 16th century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents. As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, his mission takes a fateful turn. One by one, Kane's men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil's own Reaper -- dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane at last manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.
The film was directed by Michael J. Bassett (“Da Vinci’s Demons” and SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D) and stars James Purefoy (“The Following”), the late Pete Postlethwaite, Rachel Hurd-Wood and Max von Sydow (THE EXORCIST). The character Solomon Kane was created by pulp-era writer and mind behind Conan the Barbarian, Robert E. Howard.
