Frontier(s) on DVD

The buzz about the Frontier(s) movie has forced me to rethink some of my original thoughts. After reading reviews, watching multiple trailers on You Tube, one review reported it was like the SAW franchise movies except with a deeper plot and strong performances. When you watch the trailer there a few glimpses to peak any horror fan’s interest. People chained to a wall desperate for a way out, bolt cutter used to snap an ankle, and then dismemberment mixed in among views of wild sexual orgies. The new surprise is there will be an uncut DVD released on May 13th, how about this for multi-level marketing. The movie will only be shown at this time in ten major US cities, which left pockets of the country with no access without great travel. After Dark has stepped to capitalize on the buzz, giving the fans what they want. The buzz is over a unrated movie that is actually getting shown in a theatre, then now attempt to parley with ticket sales and DVD sales. Frontier(s) is a movie that is only showing in 10 cities and being unrated faces extreme odds of making major money as in 2008, the top 20 the most box office receipts were 3.4 million dollars for a movie that opened in a 125 theatres. Frontier(s) has a huge hill to climb as it is basing success on word of mouth and creating a cult following. This struggle is enormous as they theatres will not reserve places for movies that are unrated and playing in only selected cities. The good side is After Dark is paving a new way for pictures of the future that let the people decide who should see it and not be controlled by the MPAA.
