Straw Dogs Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: A young couple (James Marsden and Kate Bosworth) moves to a quaint southern town. Soon their perfect getaway turns out to become a living hell when dark secrets and lethal passions spiral out of control. Trapped by a pack of depraved locals led by a ruthless predator (Alexander Skarsgard, TV’s True Blood), they face a night of agonizing suffering and endless bloodshed. Now their only hope for survival is to become more savage than their merciless torturers. Also starring two-time Academy Award® Nominee James Woods (Best Actor, Salvador, 1986 and Best Supporting Actor, Ghosts of Mississippi, 1996).

Review: Straw Dogs is a remake of the 1970s cult classic ultra-violence flick that originally starred Dustin Hoffman.    They did a very nice job of recreating the magic of the first film with this remake, albeit this one is a bit rougher around the edges in some ways, its also more modern era hollywood.  The film is a meciless drama that is not for the faint at heart.  This one promises edge of your seat thrills, suspense and a twisted ending that will leave you thinking and talking about human nature.

Interest Range: Drama
