Home video release details for the highly acclaimed zombie film The Battery have been announced today from the Scream Factory. I’ve been looking forward to seeing this one for a while now and I’ll get that chance this Fall. Meanwhile, you can check out the Blu-ray artwork and a few more details. Read on.
Per Scream Factory’s Facebook page, they have revealed the street date for The Battery will be September 16th and pre-order links will be going up soon.
There will be a separate DVD and Blu-ray releases. Slipcovers planned on both.
Artwork (as pictured) is reversible. The newly-created illustrated version (from artist “Kung Fu” Bob O’Brien) is one side and the original theatrical poster is on the other.
No details on extras as of yet, but they are planning for them.
This dark comedy received rave reviews from many reputable horror outlets and fans last year and we’re thrilled to be giving this fun ride and a shot at even being exposure. Stay tuned for more details in later on in our “Summer of Fear”.
Two former baseball players, Ben (Jeremy Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), cut an aimless path across a desolate New England. They stick to the back roads and forests to steer clear of the shambling corpses that patrol the once bustling cities and towns. In order to survive, they must overcome the stark differences in each other’s personalities. Ben embraces an increasingly feral, lawless, and nomadic lifestyle while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world and longs for the creature comforts he once took for granted. A bed, a girl, and a safe place to live. When the men intercept a radio transmission from a seemingly thriving, protected community, Mickey will stop at nothing to find it, even though it is made perfectly clear that he is not welcome.
