I hope you guys have saved some cash. As today we have word of another film hitting Blu-ray and DVD, and I for one am super stoked for this one. The folks over at IFC Midnight will be unleashing Jeffrey Combs’ Would You Rather this July 9th.
From the Press Release:
A philanthropic millionaire is just dying to give money to people who really need it – but his chosen recipients may just wind up dying in their pursuit of the prize. That’s the chilling setup for WOULD YOU RATHER, a one-of-a-kind thriller that will leave viewers shaken when it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on July 9, 2013, via IFC Midnight and MPI Media Group, with SRPs, respectively, of $29.98 and $24.98.
What would you do if a millionaire offered you a chance to solve all your life’s problems? After the tragic death of her parents, Iris (Brittany Snow; Pitch Perfect, John Tucker Must Die) is desperate to make ends meet while caring for her terminally ill younger brother. When seemingly philanthropic aristocrat Shepard Lambrick (Jeffrey Combs; Re-Animator, Masters of Horror) expresses an interest in helping her by inviting her to an exclusive dinner party that offers the chance at untold riches, Iris finds herself in a group of similarly desperate individuals all looking to make some easy money.
But the guests soon find themselves trapped in Lambrick’s mansion and forced to play a sadistic parlor game of Would You Rather, where one is faced with two grim, violent choices and where only the winner will get out alive. As the game progresses, Iris must decide how far she will go to save her brother – and herself.
Featuring a terrific ensemble cast that includes Sasha Grey (The Girlfriend Experience, Entourage), John Heard (Home Alone, In the Line of Fire), Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. (Army Wives, The Walking Dead), Eddie Steeples (My Name Is Earl, Akeelah and the Bee), and Charlie Hofheimer (Mad Men), WOULD YOU RATHER is an edge-of-your-seat horror thriller that invites you over for a quiet evening of murder.
“I like the fact that WOULD YOU RATHER has no stumbling zombies, werewolves with pecs, or romantic vampires. The monsters are real people,” wrote Rex Reed in the New York Observer. Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter said, “Director David Guy Levy’s clever exercise in torture porn manages to display as much restraint as genuine sickness… It definitely offers substantial chills for open-minded viewers.”
