Autonomy Pictures has announced a July 17 date for their DVD and Blu-ray release of Adam Rehmeier’s relentless horror film The Bunny Game. The unflinching indie film was recently banned in England but will still see an Uncut, Uncensored North America limited theatrical (in states that will permit it). Below you’ll find the Blu-ray cover art, with the following specs revealed: Audio commentary with director Adam Rehmeier and Rodleen Getsic, “Caretaking the Monster” making-of featurette, Trailer and alternate trailer. More dates and additional information will be announced soon. Keep up-to-date with their official Facebook page. You can click here for the first poster and hi-res imagery.
“‘Bunny Game’ follows a female prostitute (Rodleen Getsic) who hitches a lift with a truck driver. The truck driver (Jeff Renfro) kidnaps the woman, restrains and forcibly strips her, and proceeds to physically and sexually abuse and humiliate her.”
When we last heard any news about Adam Rehmeier’s The Bunny Game, it had been rejected for home video release by the BBFC who stated, “It is the Board’s carefully considered view that to issue a certificate to this work, even if confined to adults, would be inconsistent with the Board’s Guidelines, would risk potential harm within the terms of the Video Recordings Act, and would accordingly be unacceptable to the public.”
Rehmeier responded to Bloody Disgusting at the time stating: “I think ‘The Bunny Game’ is way less disturbing than ‘Pretty Woman’. Somehow it’s more socially acceptable to glamorize prostitution under the guise of a rags-to-riches fairy tale where Richard Gere falls in love with the whore by the end of the film.” He continues, “Rodleen and I didn’t make ‘The Bunny Game’ to glamorize prostitution. It is far from an erotic film. It is a modern cautionary tale grounded in reality.”
