Revolver Entertainment has announced that the harrowing Australian thriller Snowtown will be coming to Blu-ray and DVD in the UK on March 30. Based on the true story of serial killer John Bunting, the movie marked the feature film debut of director Justin Kurzel and has picked up numerous plaudits from critics around the world.
The film stars Lucas Pittaway as disenfranchised sixteen-year-old Jamie, who longs for an escape from the violence and hopelessness that surrounds him. Salvation eventually arrives in the form of John (Daniel Henshall), a charismatic father figure who unexpectedly comes to his aid.
Like a son mimicking his father, Jamie soon begins to take on some of John's traits and beliefs as he spends more and more time with him and his select group of friends. The protection and guidance that John presents to Jamie is initially welcomed however as events occur around him, including the disappearance of several people, Jamie begins to harbour deep suspicions about John and his motivations.
The Blu-ray and DVD versions of the film will retail for £18 and £16 respectively. Extras include an audio commentary, deleted scenes with director's commentary, original casting footage, The Snowtown Crimes featurette and the theatrical trailer.
