Weirdsville (R2) in March

Contender Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Weirdsville on 10th March 2008 priced at £19.99. From cult director Allan Moyle (Empire Records; Pump Up The Volume) and writer Willem Wennekers comes Weirdsville, a seriously stoned journey through a crazy Canadian night in the company of two amiable losers caught up in a sequence of increasingly absurd and hilarious circumstances.

Synopsis: Scott Speedman (Underworld: Evolution; My Life Without Me) and Wes Bentley (Ghost Rider; American Beauty) star as Dexter and Royce, a pair of twenty-something stoners who on discovering their friend Matilda (singer-songwriter and star of Hustle & Flow, Taryn Manning) has overdosed on a stolen stash of drugs decide that burying her body beneath the local disused drive-in cinema would be a much better idea than contacting the police. Unfortunately, their inept efforts at disposing of Mattie interrupt a bunch of equally incompetent Satan worshipping preppies who are in the middle of performing a ritual sacrifice. As their ill-conceived plans begin to spiral out of control, Royce and Dex find themselves on the run from the bungling Satanists, a vengeful drug dealer and a gang of vertically challenged medieval knights.

Fortuitously, there is a bright side to their predicament: Mattie's not really dead and together the trio has concocted a brand new plan to get themselves out of their ever-deepening hole - a daring heist at the home of a hippy millionaire that involves more than a little bit of help from a garden gnome. Welcome to Weirdsville. It's not just a place; it's a state of mind.
