Blu-ray/DVDetails revealed for Scream Factory’s “BACKCOUNTRY” and “THE HARVEST”


Two of the better films released theatrically this year under the IFC Midnight banner are coming to disc in September, and the contents have now been announced.

Shout! Factory will release Adam MacDonald’s BACKCOUNTRY (pictured above) and John McNaughton’s THE HARVEST on Blu-ray and DVD September 1 on the Scream Factory label. BACKCOUNTRY stars Missy Peregrym and Jeff Roop as a couple from the city terrorized during a camping trip in the Canadian mountains (review), while THE HARVEST, which marks HENRY director McNaughton’s return to terror, is about a young girl who discovers a sickly boy being held a virtual captive by his overprotective parents (Samantha Morton and Michael Shannon; review). Both films will be presented in hi-def widescreen; extras on BACKCOUNTRY are:

• Audio commentary by writer/director MacDonald and actors Peregrym and Roop
• Behind-the-scenes featurette
• Still gallery
• Theatrical trailer

THE HARVEST will include commentary by McNaughton and producer Steven A. Jones and the trailer. Head over to Shout!’s website for reduced-price pre-orders of BACKCOUNTRY and THE HARVEST.
