Dividing Bar

An intelligent and original horror movie which sets a new standard for the genre. I should just add to what Saga says below that the Extras, including the feature commentary, are only on the Region A/1 discs, for which a multi-region player will be required for those outside the USA/Canada. The UK release has no Extras.

In the DVD director's commentary, we learn that Lucas Dawson got the giggles in a key scene and Harvey Scrimshaw's dad coached him through another with football metaphors!
