Dog Soldiers is coming to 4K Blu-ray in a fantastic boxset, and while this is one of those films I’ve always meant to get round to seeing, there was a time when I actually dreamt that I watched it… which was a bizarre thing to dream 😀
The press release is as follows:
A brand-new restoration of Neil Marshall’s wickedly wild werewolf feature Dog Soldiers is marching on to Limited Edition 4K UHD/Blu-ray as well as Standard Edition 4K UHD and Blu-ray single releases courtesy of Second Sight Films this Summer. This humorous gorefest and bonafide cult classic now gets a must-have collector’s edition.
The highly anticipated box set arrives on 22nd August 2022 and includes a new 4K restoration from the original camera negative approved by the director himself and Sam McCurdy the director of photography. The Limited Edition comes in a rigid slipcase with brand-new artwork by Chris Malbon and a 108-page book with new essays. It’s packed full of special features including brand new and archive commentaries, a new 40-minute interview with Neil Marshall, Werewolves vs Soldiers: The Making of, A History of Lycanthropy from author Gavin Baddeley, Werewolves, Folklore and Cinema: a video essay by author Mikel J. Koven, Combat: a short film by Neil Marshall, deleted scenes and gag reel plus much more.
During a routine training mission in the Scottish Highlands, a small squad of happy-go-lucky British soldiers, including Cooper (Kevin McKidd – Trainspotting), led by Sergeant Wells (Sean Pertwee – Event Horizon, Gotham), plan to join a Special Operations unit… but when they arrive all they find is bloody remains – and only one survivor, C.O. Ryan (Liam Cunningham – Hunger, Game of Thrones).
When the vicious perpetrators return, the group find themselves in mortal danger, but a mysterious zoologist, (Emma Cleasby – Doomsday, Lewis) miraculously saves them. Taking shelter in an abandoned farmhouse, with no means of escape, it’s only a matter of time before the attackers return…
When night falls and the full moon appears, carnage descends, and it’s werewolves versus soldiers in a battle for survival, as they face the unflinching terror of the Dog Soldiers. This unapologetically brutal and darkly funny horror will drive you barking mad with demented delight.
