Straw Dogs final features list

Fremantle Home Entertainment have updated us with the final list of extra features for their October 7th Region 2 DVD release of Straw Dogs. Though the list has not changed much from what we originally posted (see here) there are some minor differences such as the loss of a 10-minute documentary and the addition of a 30minute interview. This set is still looking mightily impressive!
