Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego‘s Open Grave (2013) was an okay zombie horror movie that we reviewed a couple months ago, plenty of zombies. You keep going back and forth on who the real bad guy is through fragmented memories. The cover art for the Blu-ray and DVD release on July 15, 2014 looks good but the special features looks very thin. All we get is a behind-the-scenes featurette. Open Grave stars Sharlto Copley, Thomas Kretschmann and Josie Ho.
From the Press Release:
Featuring genre favorites Sharlto Copley (District 9, Elysium) and Joseph Morgan ("The Originals," "The Vampire Diaries"), the zombie apocalypse film that takes psycho thrillers in a new direction, Open Grave, awakens on Blu-ray and DVD July 15 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and Tribeca Film. Directed by Gonzalo L?pez-Gallego (Apollo 18), the dark and twisted thrill ride also stars Thomas Kretschmann (Wanted, Resident Evil: Apocalypse), Josie Ho (Contagion), Erin Richards (The Quiet Ones) and Max Wrottesley ("24: Live Another Day").
A complicated story that pits characters against each other, Open Grave examines how important memory is to a person’s identity by forcing six strangers--stripped of all recollection--to confront their inner demons. While these strangers seek to identify their past, evil demons lurk beneath them, forcing them to fight for survival, even if it means betraying their allies.
