Mike Flanagan’s ABSENTIA Set for Blu-Ray Release in UK


Absentia the critically acclaimed, multi award-winning breakthrough film from Mike Flanagan, director of this Summer’s biggest horror release Oculus, makes its UK Blu-ray debut courtesy of Second Sight Films.

Our very own Ross Hughes reviewed Absentia upon release back in 2012 and absolutely enjoyed this hidden gem, and now it’s receiving a much deserved HD treatment on Bluray.

Tricia’s (Courtney Bell) husband Daniel has been missing for seven years and with the help of her sister Callie (Katie Parker), she finally declares him legally dead ‘in absentia’. As Tricia tries to move on with her life she becomes haunted by terrifying visions, while Callie is strangely drawn to an ominous tunnel near the house, with links to other unexplained disappearances. Does the key to Daniel’s fate lie in the cold darkness of the tunnel and could the truth be something far worse than death?

Absentia will be released compete with a host of brand new special features for the first time on UK Blu-ray, and on DVD on 7th July 2014.

Bonus features will include:

-Audio commentary with director / producer Mike Flanagan and producers Morgan Peter Brown, Joe Wicker and Justin Gordon.
-Audio commentary with director Mike Flanagan and cast members Katie Parker, Courtney Bell, Dave Levine and Doug Jones.
-‘Absentia: A Retrospective’ documentary
-Camera Test Teaser

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
