Lionsgate to Release ‘Under the Mountain’ on DVD

After originally being acquired by THINKfilm, somehow Lightning Entertainment acquired the rights to Jonathan King’s Under the Mountain (review) and will release via Lionsgate Home Entertainment later this year/early next (no date is slated yet that I’m aware of). Starring Sam Neill, Sophie McBride, Tom Cameron, Leon Wadham and Oliver Driver, when teenage twins Rachel and Theo investigate the creepy old house next door, they discover the Wilberforces – shape-shifting creatures that lurk beneath Auckland’s ring of extinct volcanoes. Guided by the mysterious Mr Jones and with the help of their older cousin Ricky, the twins must rekindle the unique powers they once shared if they are to destroy this ancient evil – before it destroys them.
