Halcyon Pictures announces the DVD release of Michael Haneke's Funny Games, remade from his own acclaimed 1997 film Funny Games available in stores on DVD and Blu-ray from 28th July 2008. A special edition DVD with exclusive sleeve will be available in HMV stores and a limited edition DVD with four exclusive art cards will be available from Zavvi stores.

The vacation begins with Anna, George and their son Georgie on their way to their summer home. The neighbours, Fred and Eva, are already there. They make a date to play golf the next morning. It's a perfect day. Anna begins to make dinner, while her husband and son are busy with the newly renovated sailboat. Suddenly, Anna finds herself face to face with a polite young man, the neighbours' guest Peter, who has come to ask for some eggs because Eva has run out. Anna is about to give Peter the eggs, but hesitates. How did he get onto their property? Peter explains that there's a hole in the fence - Fred showed it to him. Things seem strange from the beginning. Soon, violence erupts.

The thriller follows the rules of its genre, providing the deliverance that allows the audience to feel comfortable watching the film. Michael Haneke began to explore his favourite subject, violence and the media, with the original 1997 film, Funny Games, and revisits it here with the same eye.
