The Cleanse comes to Blu-Ray in 2024
My first feature film finally comes home.
Folks, I didn't think it would ever happen. But I have good news to report. Sony will release my first feature, The Cleanse, on Blu-Ray in 2024.
The film played in theaters and was released digitally. At the time, I couldn’t feel sorry for myself. I was lucky. But boy, did I want that physical media release. I don't know a filmmaker who doesn't! I wanted it so badly that I bought a DVD of my own movie on eBay:
After the DVD was shipped, I asked the seller where they found it. They didn't reply and then deleted all their auctions. At the time, I was bummed they closed up shop. I wanted there to be a place to buy the film somewhere. I didn't mean to spook them!
I don't have a release date yet. But expect a ton of special features. I've been sitting on a Dropbox folder of great stuff I've been dying to release.
I think this sudden reverse course speaks to a larger moment. Studios are realizing there's a market for physical media, especially in an age where shows and films randomly disappear on streaming services.
As a dude with stacks of vinyl records, blu-rays, and books. I welcome the change.
