A Scene from Dog Soldiers

Neil Marshall’s Cult Dog Soldiers Getting A 4K UHD Blu-ray!

A couple of years ago, Vertigo Releasing gave us a 4K Digital release for Dog Soldiers. It was only a matter of time we got a Blu-ray disc version, next month we will!

A brand-new restoration of Neil Marshall’s wickedly wild werewolf feature Dog Soldiers is marching on to Limited Edition 4K UHD/Blu-ray as well as Standard Edition 4K UHD and Blu-ray single releases courtesy of Second Sight Films this Summer. This humorous gorefest and bonafide cult classic now gets a must have collector’s edition.

The new 4K restoration from the original camera negative approved by the director himself and Sam McCurdy the director of photography. The Limited Edition comes in a rigid slipcase with brand-new artwork by Chris Malbon and a 108-page book with new essays. It’s packed full of special features including brand new and archive commentaries.

During a routine training mission in the Scottish Highlands, a small squad of happy-go-lucky British soldiers,including Cooper (Kevin McKidd – Trainspotting), led by Sergeant Wells (Sean Pertwee – Event Horizon,Gotham), plan to join a Special Operations unit… but when they arrive all they find is bloody remains – and onlyone survivor, C.O. Ryan (Liam Cunningham – Hunger, Game of Thrones).

When the vicious perpetrators return, the group find themselves in mortal danger, but a mysterious zoologist,(Emma Cleasby – Doomsday, Lewis) miraculously saves them. Taking shelter in an abandoned farmhouse, with
no means of escape, it’s only a matter of time before the attackers return…

When night falls and the full moon appears, carnage descends, and it’s werewolves versus soldiers in a battle
for survival, asthey face the unflinching terror of the Dog Soldiers. This unapologetically brutal and darkly funny

horror will drive you barking mad with demented delight.
