MTV Fan-Demanded SAVAGE COUNTY Comes to DVD 5/31

Attention all horror fans…this title looks pretty darn cool.  Doesn’t it?  You didn’t even read it yet.  Alright, listen up.  “When some restless teenagers decide to play a prank on a backwoods family, boredom quickly turns to paralyzing fear.”  How do you like that logline?  I think I’m liking it.  Savage Country, the notorious shocker film demanded by MTV viewers will be available to all horror fans on DVD on May 31st.  It’s not Blu-ray, but I’m happy to be getting it.  Check out the full press release below from MPI Media Group.  It looks cool!

Will these kids never learn? You don?t go trespassing on strangers? land. Especially when those strangers are mutant in-bred Tennessee lunatics with a taste for torture. Fortunately for horror fans, these kids never do learn, and the resulting shriek fest, SAVAGE COUNTY, is set to scare when it arrives on DVD on May 31, 2011, via FilmBuff and MPI Media Group. As part of MTV?s ?Demand It!? contest, over 149,000 fans voted for and ?demanded? SAVAGE COUNTY to appear on MTV.

There?s a reason the Hardell family lives so far out of town: They don?t want company. That?s a lesson a group of high school kids learns the hard way when they trespass on the run-down Hardell ranch to guzzle beer and skinny-dip. After the brew kicks in, the teens get brave, and one of them dares to do a ?ring and run? on the Hardell front porch.

But when the old man of the house answers the door pointing a shotgun, things get kind of tense, and before you can say ?Deliverance,? one person is dead and the kids are laughing no more. What follows is a human hunting party, and the torture-loving Hardells have Hostel-like intentions for their young prey.

SAVAGE COUNTY, directed by fearless first-timer David Harris, started life as a Web miniseries, but due to popular demand, it was turned into a feature and had its premiere on MTV2. The DVD features the uncensored cut that was too graphic for basic cable.

The fresh-faced young cast includes Ana Ayora (Marley & Me), Ryan Carter (OMG/Hahaha), Ken Luckey (90210, Greek), Mimi Michaels (Bones, All My Children), Doug Haley (Heroes, Good Luck Charlie), Ivy McLemore (Cigarette Girl)and Bekah Graf (My Roommate Sam). Jimmy Crosthwait(Lovely by Surprise), Jeff Pope (Black Snake Moan) and John Malloy (My Blueberry Nights) play the bloodthirsty Hardell clan.

SAVAGE COUNTY is a killer thriller in the classic mold of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Hostel andWrong Turn ? a bloody tale of brutal violence and the desperate fight for survival.
