Comic book creator Todd Walkley (JESSE WILLIAMS), his wife (JORDANA BREWSTER), assistant (NIAMH WILSON) and best friend/publisher (JAY BARUCHEL), are heading to NYC Comic Con when bad things start to happen — people start getting killed. It soon becomes clear that a crazed fan is using his “Slasherman” comic as inspiration for the killings. And as the bodies pile up, and Todd’s friends become victims themselves, he is forced to face the killer and put an end to his notorious comic once and for all.



This release comes with an embossed slip cover. Features include an Interview (36:19) with Actor/Producer/Co-Writer/Director Jay Baruchel and a couple featurettes: More than Just a Scary Movie (2:03) and Inside the Making of an Action Scene (6:00).


VIDEO – 3½/5, AUDIO – 4¼/5

RLJ Entertainment releases Random Acts of Violence onto Blu-ray where it’s presented with a 2.38 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. The picture here looks okay but a tad soft at times, but offsetting that some of the colors do have a brilliance to them, ranging from purples to orange hues.

The disc comes with a basic but effective DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which does output clear dialogue levels primarily from the center speaker and there is some modest depth during the killings or action-like scenes or craziness during the finale.
