All's fair when love is war when the sexy hit thriller Obsessed debuts on Blu-ray and DVD on the 12th October 2009, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. A hot cast led by Beyoncé Knowles (Cadillac Records, Dreamgirls), Idris Elba (TV's The Wire and The Office) and Ali Larter (TV's Heroes, Resident Evil: Extinction) star in this steamy, suspenseful story of a successful businessman whose world unravels when he becomes the target of an alluring, predatory female co-worker.
Featuring bold performances, shocking twists and the most talked about catfight to hit the screen in ages, Obsessed is guaranteed to seduce movie lovers this October. Obsessed stalks its way onto Blu-ray and DVD loaded with tempting bonus features, including the behind-the-scenes featurettes: "Girl Fight!," in which director Steve Shill and stunt coordinator Lance Gilbert take us through the film's climactic fight sequence between Beyoncé Knowles and Ali Larter; "Playing Together Nicely," in which director Steve Shill, producer Will Packer and screenwriter David Loughrey discuss assembling the perfect cast; and "Dressed to Kill," a costume-themed featurette in which costume designer Maya Lieberman discusses the look of the characters.
When successful financial advisor Derek Charles (Idris Elba) settles into a new Los Angeles neighbourhood with his loving wife Sharon (Beyoncé Knowles) and young son Kyle, everything seems perfect. But when a beautiful temp, Lisa (Ali Larter), joins the firm, Derek's life takes a strange turn. After a misunderstood encounter at the company Holiday party, Lisa begins to spiral out of control putting Derek's career in jeopardy and Sharon's marriage and life on the line. Obsessed marks the feature directorial debut of acclaimed television director Steve Shill, whose credits include the award-winning series Big Love, Dexter and The Tudors. It was written by David Loughery (Lakeview Terrace, Money Train) and produced by William Packer (This Christmas, Stomp the Yard). Its solid supporting cast includes Christine Lahti (Smart People, Running on Empty), Jerry O'Connell (TV's "Crossing Jordan", Jerry Maguire) and Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie's Halloween & H2).
