from Disc Emporium: Horror / Documentary. Direction: James Marsh Inspired by the Michael Lesy book of the same name, Wisconsin Death Trip is an intimate, shocking, and sometimes hilarious account of the disasters that befell one small town in Wisconsin during the 1890s. The town of Black River Falls is gripped by a peculiar malaise and the weekly news accounts are dominated by bizarre talk of madness, eccentricity, and violence amongst the local population. Suicide and murder are commonplace, and people are haunted by ghosts, possessed by devils, and terrorized by teenage outlaws and arsonists. Features: 1.78:1, Anamorphic16x9, Widescreen . B&W Special Features: Commentary by Director and Director of Photography; Deleted scenes; Midwestern Gothic: The Making of Wisconsin Death Trip; Essay by Greil Marcus.
