The end of summer is a uniquely sultry time of year – and the folks at Shout! Factory have come up with an ideal double feature for this time by putting together a pair of cult favorite thrillers with an erotic bent together on one blu-ray. August will see the release of a disc that pairs The Hot Spot, an overheated ’90s neo-noir with an all-star cast, with Killing Me Softly, a 2002 erotic thriller directed by an acclaimed foreign director (it also happens to feature a revealing turn from Heather Graham). Read for all sexy summertime screening details, including the release date and cover art…
THE HOT SPOT / KILLING ME SOFTLY
ON BLURAY FROM Shout! Factory
AUGUST 13, 2013
THE HOT SPOT
Experience film noir like never before when a lowlife drifter (Don Johnson, Django Unchained), who sells used cars in a Texas burg, robs the local bank and gets involved with two sultry women: one bad, one innocent. Based on Charles Williams’ 1952 novel Hell Hath No Fury and directed by Dennis Hopper, this steamy noir also stars Barry Corbin, Charles Martin Smith, Jack Nance, Jennifer Connelly, Jerry Hardin, Leon Rippy, Virginia Madsen and William Sadler. Rated R.
KILLING ME SOFTLY
From the very moment that Alice (Heather Graham, The Hangover) locks eyes with Adam (Joseph Fiennes, American Horror Story), a mysterious stranger, she is catapulted into a whirlwind of intense erotic desire and adventure, risking everything just to be with him. But when secrets from Adam’s past begin to surface, Alice finds herself in a bizarre and potentially lethal situation she can’t escape. Acclaimed director Kaige Chen directs this contemporary suspense thriller, now on blu-ray for the first time. Unrated and uncut.
