Universal Blu's in September


Two new Blu-rays from Universal's back catalog have just been announced for release on September 7th. First is 2006's The Black Dahlia, directed by Brian De Palma, and second is 2005's The Skeleton Key, directed by Iain Softley.

The Black Dahlia revolves around the 1947 murder, in Hollywoodland, of a young star under mysterious circumstances. This brutal slaying led to an investigation for the truth and even though almost 60 people confessed to the murder the case remains unsolved to this day.

That is the true story of The Black Dahlia and on September 7th you will get to see the fictionalized version of this murder mystery on Blu-ray. This movie has a solid cast starring Josh Hartnett and Aaron Eckhart as the investigators with Scarlett Johansson and Hilary Swank as the love interests and was even nominated for an academy award for cinematography.

Extras Include:

  • Reality and Fiction: The Story of the Black Dahlia
  • The Case File
  • The De Palma Touch Presented by Volkswagon

The Skeleton Key takes us down to the bayous of New Orleans for some supernatural spookery. The longer a Hospice nurse, played by Kate Hudson, spends on an isolated plantation house of one of her clients, John Hurt, the more inexplicable things happen all revolving around the ancient practices and rites of Hoodoo.

No special features have been announced for The Skeleton Key yet so stay posted.
