From legendary producer Dino De Laurentiis, comes an epic, complex tale of man versus beast. Orca - The Killer Whale, released on DVD on 14th April 2014 courtesy of StudioCanal, has deservedly earned cult classic status thanks to a heady mix of B movie thrills with uniquely well-crafted characterisation and tragic emotion. Featuring faultless performances from Richard Harris and Charlotte Rampling in an all star cast, Orca - The Killer Whale is not only a superior example of the "natural horror" genre that spawned a slew of contenders in the wake of Jaws, but also a powerful allegory about the consequences of man's impact on the natural world.

Orca - The Killer Whale charts the exploits of Captain Nolan (Richard Harris, Gladiator, Harry Potter & The Philosophers Stone, The Field), an Irishman living in Canada, making a living catching marine animals to pay off the mortgage on his boat and longing to make enough money to go back to Ireland. A local aquarium is seeking a killer whale; if Nolan can deliver one to them, he'll have all the money he needs. When a school of Orcas is spotted off coast, Nolan forcibly puts a risky plan into action, but tragically harpoons his target's pregnant mate instead.

Traumatised by the bloody murder of its partner and unborn young, and hungry for revenge, the Killer Whale assaults the boat and the fishing town in a desperate hunt for the crew. Forced by the community to stay and hunt down the whale, a guilt-ridden Nolan assembles the remnants of his crew including Annie (Bo Derek, 10) and Umilak (Will Sampson, Poltergeist 2, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) and enlists the support of female marine expert Dr Rachel Bedford (Charlotte Rampling, Swimming Pool, Melancholia) in a voyage to meet the great beast on the seas for a 'climactic showdown'

Set to a hauntingly evocative Score by acclaimed Academy Award® winning composer Ennio Morricone (Days of Heaven, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, The Untouchables), Orca - The Killer Whale offers a thrilling and still fresh tale of nature's greatest horror unleashed.
