Eureka to release The Incident on Blu-Ray

Eureka Entertainment has announced the release of The Incident as part of their Eureka Classics range. The raw and intense thriller will make its UK debut on Blu-Ray in a dual-format edition on 12th August 2019.

A riveting urban tension thriller, and a fantastic snapshot of 1967 New York City in all its seedy, black-and-white glory, The Incident also features a cast of familiar faces from the 60s. Martin Sheen makes his feature film debut as one of two small-time hoods – the other is Tony Musante in one of his earliest roles – terrorising a subway car full of trapped passengers, portrayed by an ensemble cast including Thelma RitterBeau BridgesEd McMahonDonna Mills Jack Gilford, Brock Peters, Ruby Dee, and a host of other instantly recognisable faces from NYC films and television of the era.

After mugging an old man for a few dollars, thugs Artie (Sheen) and Joe (Musante) hop a subway deep in the Bronx, and proceed to threaten and intimidate the Sunday night commuters all the way to Times Square. The terrified riders are a mixed group – an elderly Jewish couple, a family trying to protect their 5-year-old daughter, an alcoholic, two teens on a date, two military Privates, a bigoted African-American man and his wife, etc. – but they are united by their fear and sense of helplessness as switchblade-wielding Joe and Artie block the subway doors from opening at stops, and prevent the riders from leaving. Will any of them have the courage to confront the two maniacs?

The Incident will be available on dual format (DVD and Blu-ray) from 12th August 2019.
