Severin Films to Release the British Cult-Hit series SNUFF BOX on DVD October 11th!

On October 11th Severin Films are set to release the British cult comedy series SNUFF BOX that aired on the BBC back in 2006 on DVD/CD. While I haven't seen this one myself I've heard a ton of praise with favorable comparisons to MONTY PYTHON and the UPRIGHT CITIZEN'S BRIGADE so I am psyched to check this out. An Amazon pre-order and testimonial YouTube video link can be found at the end of the post...

Severin Films is pleased to announce the DVD release of the British cult-hit comedy series Snuff Box on October 11, 2011. Written by and starring Matt Berry (The IT Crowd) and Rich Fulcher (The Mighty Boosh), Snuff Box was lauded by The Velvet Onion as “An amazing show…funny, bizarre.” Dangerous Minds described it as “A work of demented genius…Snuff Box is the greatest sketch comedy show you’ve never heard of.”

Snuff Box premiered in the UK on BBC3 in 2006 and has since developed cult status worldwide, attracting millions of views on Youtube. The acclaimed series follows professional hangmen Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher as they down whiskeys at the Hangmen’s Club, experience awkward moments, charm women, navigate a long white hallway, and repeatedly attempt to acquire a pair of silver cowboy boots. Darkly hilarious, Snuff Box is a genre-bending hybrid of sitcom and sketch, known for its unforgettable musical numbers such as Rapper with a Baby and the legendary The Empty Room.

The DVD release contains all six Snuff Box episodes and a trunkful of special features including: an all-new documentary featuring Snuff Box celebrity superfans such as Paul Rudd, Simon Pegg and Noel Fielding; audio commentaries for episodes 1, 2 and 6; a walking tour of Snuff Box locations; a look into the show's musical process; and a bonus CD of the Snuff Box original soundtrack.
