"This dark, bloody imaginative fairy tale about a camping trip that turns into deadly carnage draws on such influences asÂ Lord of the Rings, Friday the 13thÂ andÂ The Devil s Backbone. The story follows 12-year-old outcast Sam who, along with his troop of cub scouts and their teenage supervisors, camp in woods rumored to house a mysterious and deadly werewolf. Inquisitive Sam, certain the woods are inhibited by something evil, soon stumbles upon a feral young boy and eventually, his evil psychopathic mentor. But convincing the others of the danger falls on deaf ears, and soon for the non-believers, dead ears, as ingenious traps begin to take their violent toll on the group. A wildly entertaining killer in the woods actioner.

As the Allies march toward Paris in the summer of 1944, Hitler gives orders that the French capital should not fall into enemy hands, or if it does, then 'only as a field of rubble'. The person assigned to carry out this barbaric act is Wehrmacht commander of Greater Paris, General Dietrich von Choltitz, who already has mines planted on the Eiffel Tower, in the Louvre and Notre Dame and on the bridges over the Seine. Nothing should be left as a reminder of the city's former glory. However, at dawn on 25 August, Swedish Consul General Raoul Nordling steals into German headquarters through a secret underground tunnel and there starts a tension-filled game of cat and mouse as Nordling tries to persuade Choltitz to abandon his plan . In this passionate and emotional adaptation of the 2011 stage success by Cyril Gely, the great Volker Schlondorff (Academy Award winner THE TIN DRUM) has created a psychologically elaborate game of political manners between two highly contrasting characters. While Choltitz entrenches himself behind his duty to obey unquestioningly all military orders, Nordling tries everything he can to appeal to reason and humanity and prevent the senseless destruction of the beloved 'City of Lights'.
One of the worldâ€™s most influential and provocative filmmakers, the Academy Awardâ€“winning Austrian director Michael Haneke (Amour) diagnoses the social maladies of contemporary Europe with devastating precision and staggering artistry. His 2000 dramaÂ Code Unknown,Â the first of his many films made in France, may be his most inspired work. Composed almost entirely of brilliantly shot, single-take vignettes focusing on characters connected to one seemingly minor incident on a Paris street, Hanekeâ€™s filmâ€”with an outstanding international cast headlined by Juliette Binoche (Three Colors: Blue)â€”is a revelatory take on racial inequality and the failure of communication in todayâ€™s increasingly diverse European landscape. DIRECTOR-APPROVEDÂ BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURESÂ â€¢ New, restored 2K digital transfer, approved by director Michael Haneke, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack â€¢ New interview with Haneke â€¢ Introduction by Haneke from 2001 â€¢Â Filming Haneke,Â a 2000 making-of documentary featuring interviews with Haneke, actor Juliette Binoche, and producer Marin Karmitz, as well as on-set footage of cast and crew â€¢ Interview from 2001 in which Haneke discusses the filming of the boulevard sequences â€¢ New interview with film scholar Roy Grundmann â€¢ Trailers â€¢ New English subtitle translation â€¢ PLUS: An essay by critic Nick James
