    Anyone seen this movie yet? It has Danielle Harris in it - I had not heard of it until today- wondered if it might be worth picking up when its released on Blu in September

    I've seen it, but it's been a long time. It's pretty awful, basically like a SyFy Channel movie. The characters all have a lot of conflict and are constantly bickering with each other, so it makes you wonder why they would even be hanging out in the first place. Production values are decent, it's just very poorly written. If you've seen Blood Night, another recent slasher film with Danielle Harris, it's pretty much on par with that.

    Might be good for a one time watch, but I wouldn't recommend a blind-buy.

    Surprised it took this long to hit disc, since it played in theaters over three years ago.

    The premise actually looks pretty damn cool, and the trailer dones't look too bad either. I'll give it a chance.

    Yup, it's definitely out early. Picked mine up today for $7.99. They had about 5 copies of the blu-ray and 1 copy of the DVD.

    I haven't opened it yet, but since I couldn't find much info about the blu-ray online I will mention that the back of the case mentions an "Alternate Opening" as the sole extra feature. It has been a while since I saw it, but if I recall, that would be the Turkey / archeology flashback.
