    Extra Ordinary is a new horror comedy due out this fall.

    Has anyone heard of this? It's due out this fall, but I have tickets to an advanced screening in a few weeks.

    I'll see this. I'm not a big Will Forte fan, but I do enjoy horror comedy way more than most people seem to. Looks good to me.

    I fucking love Will Forte. Just rewatched MacGruber a week or two ago which is one of the funniest god damn movies of all time. I'm all in here!

    Extra Ordinary is FANTASTIC and the real deal! Definitely one of my favorite genre offerings I've seen this year.

    This is the cutest little possession horror romantic comedy I've ever seen. I don't even like possession horror and I thought this excelled in every genre it tackled. It reminded me a lot of Taika Waititi in that it has the silly horror comedy of What We Do In The Shadows mixed with the heart and charms of Hunt For The Wilderpeople. I can't wait to see it again because the audience was laughing so hard during the final 30-minutes that I'm sure I missed a few great lines.

    The cast is all around perfect and nails every beat they set out for. You will fall in love with Maeve Higgins and Barry Ward. Amidst all the wonderfully constructed horror comedy chaos that is Extra Ordinary, the pair offer a better romantic comedy duo than most straight-up romantic comedies. Will Forte is also a riot as the one-hit-wonder Satanic rockstar Christian Winter.

    I don't think there is a release date yet, but I believe they are shooting for October. See it as soon as you possibly can, because it is not to be missed! How rare is it to see a horror comedy that is surprisingly heart-warming in between the genuine belly-laughs and outrageous horror gags? If you don't have fun while watching this movie, you are probably dead inside.

    Not sure what is going on with the US release, but unfortunately it looks like they are going to miss Halloween this year. Which is a shame, it's a perfect movie for this month.

    Germany is releasing a blu-ray on October 25th:

    I think the US distributor realizes they have a potential cult hit on their hands, and are trying to find the best way to release it where it gets seen. Doesn't seem to be working though. It has played a lot of festivals over the past few months, but I've heard little-to-no discussion about it.

    Shame, because Extra Ordinary is a total delight! I can't wait to see it again!

    Unfortunately, this is going BD-R here in the US. Release date is June 2nd.

    This same company released a pressed blu-ray of the vastly inferior Nightmare Cinema. It's a shame they didn't deem this movie worthy. It's a gem.

    Got the German blue today finally I loom forward to revisiting this.

    Unfortunately it's bare bones unlike the US release but it is a BD-50 pressed disc as apposed to the US BD-R25. I've heard the US release is full of artifacts so I'm hoping the German release will have better presentation. Would prefer better picture over extras shame though can't have both.
