Now on Blu-ray: DER BUNKER Comes Out of Hiding

Just in time for the beginning of the school year, Nikias Chryssos' Der Bunker arrives on Blu-ray and DVD.

It is a strange one. Quoting from the official synopsis: "A student (Pit Bukowski, Der Samurai) rents a room in a bunker home nestled deep within a forest. Here, instead of finding tranquility for his studies, the young man becomes increasingly involved in the dramas of his landlord's family."

I saw the film at Fantastic Fest last year and found it quite odd and betwitching ... eventually:

Making his feature debut, Nikias Chryssos spends the first part of the film setting up a pitch black comedy, filled it with the sort of mean-spirited, intentionally bizarre, and absurd humor that normally makes my skin crawl. Without giving too much away, though, Der Bunker is about more than a twisted, unbelievably dysfunctional family.

You can read my entire review here.

Der Bunker will be released on DVD and Blu-ray (and 90-day exclusive streaming on Vimeo) tomorrow (Tuesday, August 23, 2016), and on most major VOD outlets beginning on December 6. Bonus features include: Deleted Scenes (20'), Outtakes (13'), and an Audio Commentary.
