MoH: Family DVD Specs and Artthegoldensimatar
We were sent the news of the special features on John Landis' movie in Masters of Horror Season 2 Family. No DVD art as of yet, but it will be presented 1.78:1 Anamorphic Transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 audio track.
I was unable to catch the movie as I found out we had free ShowtimeonDemand too late, but I have read very positive reviews and heard many positive things about it. So I can't wait for this to hit.
“Family” pierces the neighbors’ curtains for a satiric vision of suburbia, the likes of which had not been seen since David Lynch’s Blue Velvet. Harold Thompson (George Wendt) is a mild-mannered bachelor living in an idyllic, sun-drenched planned community. Unbeknownst to his neighbors, he has a skeleton in his closet – several, in fact. During the day, he happily works in the basement, stripping the flesh off his latest murder victims as he builds the “perfect” family.
When a young couple moves next door, Harold sets his sights on the sexy young wife (Meredith Monroe) as his potential new “bride.” Amid the manicured lawns and white picket fences, can Harold hide his monstrous secret long enough to complete his gruesome goal?
