New Release: Stag Night DVD and Blu-ray

Heading out to a bachelor party has never been as ugly and life-threatening as it is in Stag Night, a gruesome little 2008 horror movie that arrived on DVD and Blu-ray from Lionsgate on Feb. 15, 2011.

The movie stars Breckin Meyer (Road Trip), Scott Adkins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Karl Geary (TV’s Gravity) as a group of friends who go to big, bad New York City with soon-to-be-groom Kip Pardue (Remarkable Power) to celebrate his last days as a single man with a Manhattan stag party blow-out.

Running into a pair of shapely strippers (Two Lovers‘ Vinessa Shaw and Dark Reality‘s Rachel Oliva ) on the subway, everything is cool until the men find themselves stranded at a seemingly deserted station stop. Well, it doesn’t take long for NYC’s most undesirable denizens — a gang of cannibalistic underground dwellers known as “Tunnel Rats” — to threaten to make mince meat of the boys and their two new gal pals. If only the above-grounders were armed with machetes like the Tunnel Rats.

The directorial debut of Peter A. Dowling (screenwriter of Flight Plan), Stag Night is part of Lionsgate’s Ghost House Underground line of fright flicks chosen by horror impresarios Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead) and Rob Tapert (executive producer of TV’s Spartacus: Blood and Sand). Like all Ghost House Underground releases, Stag Night premiered in the U.S. on DVD (following a positive reception at Screamfest 2010 in October).

Stag Night was priced at $19.98 on DVD and $29.99 on Blu-ray.

The Blu-ray and DVD’s sole supplement is a making-of featurette.
