The Incident coming to DVD/Blu-ray in August
Eureka are adding the Martin Sheen starring The Incident to their Eureka Classic range on 12th August.
After mugging an old man for a few dollars, thugs Artie (Sheen) and Joe (Tony Musante) hop a subway deep in the Bronx, and proceed to threaten and intimidate the Sunday night commuters all the way to Times Square. The terrified riders are a mixed group – an elderly Jewish couple, a family trying to protect their 5-year-old daughter, an alcoholic, two teens on a date, two military Privates, a bigoted African-American man and his wife, etc. – but they are united by their fear and sense of helplessness as switchblade-wielding Joe and Artie block the subway doors from opening at stops, and prevent the riders from leaving. Will any of them have the courage to confront the two maniacs?
