Product Description


The most viscerally frightening and disturbing homicidal maniac picture since The Silence of the Lambs, Seven is based on an idea that's both gruesome and ingenious. A serial killer forces each of his victims to die by acting out one of the seven deadly sins. The murder scene is then artfully arranged into a grotesque tableau, a graphic illustration of each mortal vice. From the jittery opening credits to the horrifying (and seemingly inescapable) concluding twist, director David Fincher immerses us in a murky urban twilight where everything seems to be rotting, rusting, or moulding; the air is cold and heavy with dread. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt are the detectives who skillfully track down the killer--all the while unaware that he has been closing in on them, as well. Gwyneth Paltrow and Kevin Spacey are also featured, but it is director Fincher and the ominous, overwhelmingly oppressive atmosphere of doom that he creates that are the real stars of the film. It's a terrific date movie--for vampires. --Jim Emerson

Special Features

For fans and filmmakers alike, New Line's Platinum Edition of Seven is one of the most comprehensive DVDs ever released. Four feature-length commentaries accompany the film on Disc 1; perhaps most interesting are the comments of sound designer Ren Klyce and composer Howard Shore, who explain in eloquent detail how their work was created to enhance mood and establish atmosphere to match the visuals. The film's trendsetting title sequence is explored and discussed in exhaustive detail, and a photo gallery demonstrates how meticulous efforts were made to create rich authenticity to the psychology of the film's serial killer. Deleted scenes demonstrate the rigors of the editorial process, and a never-filmed alternate ending is presented in storyboard format. Of particular interest to DVD collectors is a fascinating exploration of the audio remixing and video remastering process, demonstrating the subtleties of digital color and tone manipulation, and proving beyond question that this is the most definitive version of Seven ever released. --Jeff Shannon

............who actually despise unhappy endings. They expect every story wrought with villiany should end with rainbows and kittens. Because we all know that's how the world works, right?
Most people that have seen this movie view it for what it tries to be. Mainly a twisted spiral of darkness and violence increasing in its disturbing imagry until the explosive finale. Then there are those that liked it up until the end. Huh?....the ending is what made it stand out from all the rest of Silence of the Lambs clones. This movie showed real cajones by submitting us to a disturbing and 'un-Hollywood' type ending. People should at least have respect for that. As one reviewer put it, "..this movie sucks you deeper and deeper into an abyss then leaves you there." Yeah, I know....great, huh? Then there are those that think the movie was pretty good...it just went too far. Look, it's rated R for a reason. Besides, some of the most memorable classics like 'The Exorcist' was proclaimed as, "..gone too far."
In case you don't know:
The plot: Mysterious serial killer murders victims based on the seven deadly sins.
-greed, lust, pride, gluttony, sloth, vanity, and wrath.
The characters: Hot-headed rookie detective played by Pitt + Refined, calm, and intelligent veteren detective played by Morgan Freeman.
The killer: Well, it's supposed to be a surprise since his name wasn't even in the opening credits.
Conclusion: I wasn't kidding about the ending. It's not cupcakes and roses. I remember seeing this on the opening night in the theater. As the credits rolled, there was no talking as people exited the theater. Actually most people didn't move for a couple of minuets. Only pale terrified faces across the masses. This is great filmaking BECAUSE it leaves you with such feelings.
Seven is already a classic amongst suspense thrillers and it will always be so. So do yourself a favor and check it out.

Format: DVD
Director: David Fincher
Cast: Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow, John C. McGinley, Kevin Spacey.
Running Time: 127 minutes.
Rated R for extreme violence, gore, and language.
One of the most gruesome, yet intriguing mystery/suspense thrillers of the past decade, "Seven" is widely considered one of the best of its kind-and rightfully so. It is a film that will test the stomachs of all its viewers, yet even those who feel queasy throughout the entire picture stay engaged because of the impeccable acting, top-notch direction, and riveting cinematography.
Detective William Somerset (a stupendous, touching performance from the always admirable Morgan Freeman) is looking forward to retirement-he has had it with all the horror, stress, and dead partners that accompany his job. His young protégé, Detective Mills (Brad Pitt), is looking forward to follow in his footsteps, but realizes that his feet are in too deep as a serial killer who calls himself "John Doe" begins to parade around the city-killing each of his victims in a pattern that references to the seven deadly sins. As both detectives uncover more of the truth about the horrific killer, they become entangled in a ghoulish scheme that will shock them. Gwyneth Paltrow gives a fine performance as Mills's distressed wife.
Director David Fincher creates a dark and disturbing film, using Freeman and Pitt well (both give slightly dark, somber performances) to his advantage. The unique camera angles, explosive chase sequences, and vivid crime scenes enhance the picture, making "Seven" an inimitable thriller that is so effective, powerful, and alarming that it will scare your socks right off.

Format: Blu-ray
I was excited to be able to purchase this fine film on blu-ray and viewed it right away when it arrived. I was upset to see that the origional aspect radio was no intact. As a true movie buff I want to see any movie in the correct aspect ratio how it was meant to be seen. The PQ is far superior to the old school two sided non-anamorphic ws dvd I have owned for years. I must say though that the adjusted aspect ratio is a most unwelcomed change. I will likley purchase a blu-ray copy of this film again when the correct aspect ratio becomes available.

"At first sin is a stranger in the soul; then it becomes a guest; and when we are habituated to it, it becomes as if the master of the house." - Tolstoy.
Although not originating from the bible, the concept of deadly sins is almost as old as Christian doctrine itself. Theologians like 4th century Greek monk Evagrius of Pontus first compiled catalogues of deadly offenses against the divine order, which 6th century pope Gregory the Great consolidated into a list of seven sins, which in turn formed the basis of the works of medieval/renaissance writers like St. Thomas Aquinas ("Summa Theologiae"), Geoffrey Chaucer ("Canterbury Tales"), Christopher Marlowe ("Dr. Faustus"), Edmund Spenser ("The Faerie Queene") and Dante Alighieri ("Commedia Divina"/"Purgatorio"). And in times when the ability to read was a privilege rather than a basic skill, the depiction of sin in paintings wasn't far behind; particularly resulting from the 16th century's reformulation of church doctrine, the works of artists like Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel the Elder brought the horrific results of humankind's penchant to indulge in vice back into general consciousness with surrealistic eloquence, reminding their viewers that no sin goes unseen (Bosch, "The Seven Deadly Sins") and that its commission leads straight into a hell reigned by gruesome, grotesque demons and devils whose sole purpose is to torture those fallen into their hands (Bosch, "The Hay-Wagon" and "The Last Judgment;" Bruegel, "The Triumph of Death" and "The Tower of Babel").
