Wither - the Swedish Evil Dead

Anyone else excited for Wither, being released on DVD this Tuesday?

Reviews have been fairly positive, with several likening it to The Evil Dead (probably moreso for the cabin-in-the-woods plot than the film's effectiveness).

I'm definitely eager to check it out. However, the director's previous film, Blood Runs Cold, was a huge bore. This one looks to be a gory good time though.

If this got a US release (uncut), I'd blind buy it on the spot.

It has. The DVD came out on 8/20 and is uncut.

Oh yeah, I actually got the DVD for free. I had pre-ordered it from somewhere, and then cancelled it later on. They curiously shipped it anyway, and I contacted them about it. They did charge for it initially, but then refunded the full amount...and I got to keep the DVD.

I haven't had a chance to watch it yet though...

Well damn that's cool. Thanks for the heads up. I'll have to do some searching for it.

BB has it on their site but isn't available in stores...bummer.

Did anyone else see this yet? Definitely had some budgetary problems, but I thought it was really good!

Much more fun than the Evil Dead remake, at least.

Yeah, it was pretty entertaining. Nothing original, just a straightforward gorefest...exactly what it was made to be.

Blood Runs Cold really sucked though. This film is like a masterpiece in comparison to that shitfest.

Agreed, Blood Runs Cold was a huge borefest. They're also responsible for the awful cheerleader vs hillbillies movie Madness. It was set in America, but the hillbillies in that spoke fluent Swedish.

This is on my "to buy" list but I haven't seen it for the right price yet.
