Straight to Hell - Director's Cut Special Edition (Blu-ray)
Directed by Alex Cox
A 2K Restoration! From Alex Cox, the director of Repo Man, Highway Patrolman and Sid and Nancy. In this director’s cut of the 1987 cult classic, four hapless bank robbers bury their loot and attempt to hide out in a deserted desert town, but very soon find out that the town is not really deserted. Norwood (Sy Richardson), Simms (Joe Strummer) and Willy (Dick Rude) are three black-suited killers-for-hire. After missing their intended target and trying to escape the wrath of their employer (Jim Jarmusch), they head for the desert and rob a bank en-route. As their car dies in a ravine, the trio bury their money and head for a lonely town to hide out till the heat blows over. The insane cast includes Courtney Love, The Pogues, Grace Jones, Dennis Hopper, Elvis Costello, Kathy Burke and Xander Berkeley.
Blu-ray Extras Include:
Audio Commentary by Director Alex Cox and Star Dick Rude
"Back to Hell" - Making-of Doc
"Black Hills" A short tour of the STRAIGHT TO HELL locations, shot by Alex Cox back in 1977
