A Serbian Film will debut on Blu-Ray in North America on October 25, 2011, courtesy of independent distributor Invincible Pictures. The news comes after the Serbian horror movie, helmed by first-time director Srđan Spasojević, had a brief theatrical run and appeared on VOD through FlixFling.
Twitch Film is reporting that Invincible hasn’t yet released the content, runtimes and extras that will be included on the Blu-ray and DVD. However, the studio has listed that the Blu-ray is expected to include the unrated version of the movie, which features approximately an extra minute of footage.
After the theatrical release of A Serbian Film, which stars Srđan Todorović and Sergej Trifunović, the film received attention for its graphic portrayals of rape, necrophilia and pedophilia. The state prosecutor of Serbia even opened an investigation to see if the movie violated any laws.
A Serbian Film follows Milos, played by Todorović, a retired porn star who is now leading a normal life with his wife Maria and their six-year-old son Petar in tumultuous Serbia. Aware of Milos’ struggle to make ends meet, Milos’ former colleague Laylay introduces him to a filmmaker named Vukmir, portrayed by Trifunović.
If Milos takes a part in Vukmir’s new production, the struggling father will be financially secure for the rest of his life. But Milos must sign a contract first, saying he won’t know any of the script’s details until they begin shooting. As the film starts to shoot, Milos realizes that he’s gotten involved in something very dark and dangerous, something far more terrifying than anyone could hope to be involved in.
As of now, Invincible has yet to announce the extras for the Serbian Film Blu-ray and DVD. While we wait for the studio to release the details of the Limited Edition Blu-Ray, tell us, have you seen the film? If so, what did you think of it?
