Derek Lee & Clif Prowse‘s Afflicted (2013) horror documentary was extremely slow in the beginning but quickly delivered a great horror experience. I am excited to say that Afflicted will release on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital this July 1, 2014. You have to see this movie, it was enjoyable and make sure you stick around for nice Easter Egg ending to the film. Thank Sony Pictures Home Entertainment for bringing this horror movie to these media types with the Blu-ray giving us some good extras.
From the Press Release:
The award-winning, critically acclaimed horror thriller AFFLICTED spreads terror on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital July 1, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. AFFLICTED tells the chilling tale of two best friends whose documented journey around the world takes a horrifying turn after an encounter with a beautiful woman in Paris leaves one of them mysteriously afflicted. Written, directed and co-starring breakthrough filmmaking duo Derek Lee and Clif Prowse, this excitingly original entry in the found-footage horror genre took home awards for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay (Horror Feature category) at the 2013 FantasticFest, in addition to awards of recognition at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Bonus features on both the Blu-ray and DVD include never-before-seen deleted scenes, as well as two fascinating featurettes. "Afflicted: Behind the Scenes" takes fans on set for an inside look at the making of this new found-footage horror favorite, and "Anatomy of a Scene: The Window Jump" features filmmakers on how they utilized a creative mix of practical stunt work and visual effects to pull off one of the film’s more jaw-dropping action sequences.
AFFLICTED was produced by Chris Ferguson and Zach Lipovsky. Executive producers are Jason Dowdeswell, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Stuart Ford, and Zak Pashak.
The film has a run time of about 85 minutes and has been rated R for disturbing, bloody violence and language.

Official Synopsis: Best friends Derek and Clif set out on a trip of lifetime. Their plan: travel to the ends of the earth, see the world, and live life to the fullest. But the trip soon takes a dark and bloody turn. Just days in, one of the men shows signs of a mysterious affliction which gradually takes over his entire body and being. Now, thousands of miles from home, in a foreign land, they must race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely. Footage meant to be travel memories may now become evidence of one of the most shocking discoveries ever captured on film...and perhaps will be their only postcard home.
