Shallow Grave: Special Edition (2008)
Saturday 2nd August 2008
Shallow Grave, released by 4DVD from 11th August 2008 as a Special Edition, tells the story of three friends who share a flat in Edinburgh - a journalist (Ewan McGregor), an accountant (Christopher Eccleston), and a doctor (Kerry Fox).
When the trio decide to advertise for a new flatmate they hold a sequence of interviews, eventually taking in the mysterious Hugo (Keith Allen). When Hugo suddenly dies of a drug overdose they discover he has left a mysterious legacy in his demise, in the form of a suitcase full of cash. The three decide to keep the money and dispose of Hugo's corpse in a "shallow grave".
Straws are then drawn to decide who is going to dismember the corpse, and the unwilling David (Eccleston) is lumbered with the task. After discovering his two flatmates have spent large sums of the money on meaningless items, David soon becomes a psychopathic recluse. After a series of visits from the police, he soon decides to leave the flat with the money and a trail of corpses behind him.
Featuring an exclusive commentary from director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, The Beach) and an exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary shot during the making of the film in 1995 (Digging the Grave), Shallow Grave: Special Edition is a cult classic
