Deliverance 40th Anniversary Blu-ray Book Available Now!

New postby TheSkeletonCrew » Thu Jul 05, 2012 7:13 pm


It's hard to believe that it's been 40 years since DELIVERANCE has been released. While it's not your typical horror film, it does have elements that classify it as more of a psychological horror.

The Cahulawassee River valley in Northern Georgia is one of the last natural pristine areas of the state, which will soon change with the building of a dam on the river, which in turn will flood much of the surrounding land. As such, four Atlanta businessmen - Lewis Medlock, Ed Gentry, Bobby Trippe, and wide-eyed Drew Ballinger - decide to take a canoe trip on the river, with only Lewis and Ed having any experience in outdoor life. They know going in that the area is ethno-culturally homogeneous and isolated, but don't understand the full extent it until they arrive and see what they believe is the result of generations of inbreeding. Their relatively peaceful trip takes a turn for the worse when half way through they encounter a couple of hillbilly moonshiners. That encounter not only makes the four battle their way out of the valley intact and alive, but threatens the relationships of the four as they do and are asked to do things they never thought possible within themselves.

Based on James Dickey's novel, this film tells the story of an ill-fated canoe trip in deep backwoods America, where the people are as scary as the country is beautiful.

Warner Home Video brings DELIVERANCE to Blu-ray for it's 40th Anniversary in a very special Blu-ray book edition, which includes a new featurette and a 42-page commemorative book with behind-the-scenes photos and rare insights.
