Gillian Anderson’s Straightheads Coming to U.S. DVD as Closure

I guess Sony couldn’t wrap their heads around the title “Straightheads”, because they’ve decided to change the title of Dan Reed’s revenge film starring Gillian Anderson (yes, Gillian Anderson of “X-Files” fame) to “Closure” for its Region 1 DVD release. Dan Reed informed readers through his blog (via) that the movie will not reach U.S. theaters, but would go direct-to-DVD after its British theatrical run. The film stars Anderson and Danny Dyer as an English couple who are attacked one night and Anderson raped; the two later take revenge on their attackers in gruesome ways and end up enjoying themselves way too much. The film has been a favored topic of fanboys, especially since Anderson gets nude in the film, her first since an old movie she had done long ago called “The Turning”.

This taut and truly violent thriller sees a middle-class woman and a security man who after ravaging in an explosive night of passion head off to a posh party in the highlands, however on the way they encounter a connection of violent gun holders who beat him and horrifically gang-rape her. After surviving this terrifying encounter, the traumatized couple decide to take revenge on the mob. After coming to terms with what happened, the couple manage to get hold of a rifle, and as the sun goes down a truly harrowing blood bath unfolds as the revenge stricken pair unleash their deadly revenge.

The British “Straightheads” hits UK DVDs sometime October, and will probably arrive on U.S. shelves about the same time period.

Here’s a trailer for “Straightheads”:

    I looked at the trailer and it looks gross. Would not spend one cent on crap like that. ewwwwwwwww. I think the only people attracted to that film will be the geek boys who want to see her boobs. Guess even her naked chest could not put behinds in the seats in England. It lasted 2 weeks:)It’s no wonder its going straight to DVD in the States.

    I think you’re just jealous of her. I saw the trailer and it looks like a really good movie. I think Gillian Anderson is a great actress and it’s pretty sad that people like you dont recognize that! Like I said, to me you just seem like a jealous person with no life and only wish you were half as pretty and as amazing as she is!!

    I am researching Gillian Anderson and reading about this movie while watching it on Pay Per View TV. She is a really good actress and it is sad that she wastes her talent on such a piece of boring trash. She really needs to be more choosy on what movies to take part in. She has a sense of class, from what I gather on her website, and she needs to be true to that part of herself. Her British accent in this movie, however, is what made me research her. Very good.

    • Jago

      LOL. Her British accent is real. Of course its good :P

      • Pinkly

        That’s a bit of a stretch. She picked up the accent while she lived in London as a kid, but she’s been back in the States (where she was born) for longer than she lived in England.
        Fact is, some actors and actresses are just better at doing accents than others. Jane Seymour’s never managed to affect a convincing American accent, despite doing Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman for 5 years and working on U.S. productions for longer than that. I’m drawing a blank right now, but there is an English actress who does such a convincing American accent that I didn’t even realize at first that she was English.

        Some are able to do accents without ever having lived in the country whose accent they are imitating. Gillian Anderson might still have managed a convincing English accent had she never set foot in England.
