Hi everyone! Let’s take things back a little ways to giveaway a great classic, and almost forgotten about grindhouse film, now available on Blu-Ray courtesy of our good friends at VSC. Enter for a chance to win a copy of THE SWIMMER on Blu-Ray!
Grindhouse Releasing is proud to present the ultimate late-60s studio-produced cult film, The Swimmer. In his finest performance, Burt Lancaster stars as Ned Merrill, a man who confronts his destiny by swimming home, pool by pool, through the suburban nightmare of upper-class East Coast society. Based on the acclaimed short story by John Cheever, and directed by Frank Perry (Diary of a Mad Housewife, Mommie Dearest), The Swimmer is a film like no other, a feature-length Twilight Zone episode by way of THE NEW YORKER.
The Swimmer is now available to own on Blu-Ray for the first time ever, and here’s how you can win a copy of your own! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with THE SWIMMER in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. Multiple entries will be deleted. For additional chances to win, simply like the contest announcement on our Facebook Page and/or re-Tweet the announcement from our Twitter! Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Friday, May 23rd.
Good luck and remember to stay tuned to Dork Shelf all summer long for all the latest movie news, reviews, interviews, features, and more great contests!
