Set in the near future, when dramatic advances in science, specifically human augmentation, have triggered a technological renaissance, Deus Ex: Human Revolution follows Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT security specialist who must embrace mechanical augments in order to unravel a global conspiracy.
Sinister arrives on Blu-ray and DVD today, February 19th. Both versions include audio commentaries, deleted scenes and multiple featurettes and it’s a rather more loaded disc than we’re accustomed to getting with many horror releases these days.
Yesterday I had the chance to talk with writer/director Scott Derrickson and his co-writer C. Robert Cargill (aka “Massawyrm” on Ain’t It Cool). While I’ve talked about Sinister with Derrickson on prior occasions, this was my first opportunity to speak with both of them about their ongoing collaboritive process. We also discussed the lost Angela Bettis scenes that have made their way back onto the Blu, the upcoming video game adaptation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution as well as an obligatory follow-up on my part regarding Sinister 2.
In the film, “Ten years ago, true crime writer Ellison Oswald (Hawke) made his reputation with a best-selling account of a notorious murder. Now, desperate to replicate the success of his first book, he moves his family into a home where the previous occupants were brutally executed and a child disappeared, hoping to find inspiration in the crime scene. In the home, Ellison discovers a cache of terrifying home movies, unwittingly opening the door into a nightmarish mystery.”
