Night Watch (R2) in April - Menus added

Fox Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Night Watch for 24th April 2006 priced at £19.99. From Russia, with horror, comes the stylish horror fantasy film that has revolutionized post-Soviet cinema: NIGHT WATCH (NOCHNOI DOZOR). The film brings to the fore the cutting-edge vision of director/writer Timur Bekmambetov (whom Russian director Nikita Mikhalkov called “our Tarantino”).

Set in contemporary Moscow, NIGHT WATCH (NOCHNOI DOZOR) uncovers the other-world battle that upholds a 1000-year-old truce between the forces of Light and the forces of Darkness. For centuries, the undercover members of the Night Watch have policed the world’s Dark Ones – the vampires, witches, shape-shifters and sorcerers that wage treachery in the night, while the Dark Ones have a Day Watch that in turn polices the forces of Light. The fate of humanity rests in this delicate balance between good and evil but that fate is in jeopardy.

Adapted from the fantasy novels of Sergei Lukyanenko, NIGHT WATCH on DVD comprises two discs packed with special features presented in exclusive packaging. Two commentaries, deleted scenes, a sneak peek at Day Watch, and a choice of two features are included - the original Russian format with unique subtitles that become part of the film and another in English.
