Out on Blu-ray September 23, Fury: The Tales of Ronan Pierce brings with it big budget style with low budget independent energy. The 17 day shoot in and around Tampa capitalises on CGI inspired cityscapes in its chrome surfaces to evoke a live action graphic novel set in the shadowy underworld of a sordid crime-laden port.

Fury takes place in the fictional Harbor City where the titular character Ronan Pierce (Michael McCarthy), a rogue cop out to avenge his family which includes some heavy guilt for the recent abduction of his ex-wife. As a tragic past comes back to haunt the hero whose relentless pursuit of clues while negotiating the dark alleys and docklands of thugs, thieves, psychos, drug cartels, organ harvesters, perverts and untouchable corrupt politicians takes him on an unyielding violent odyssey of redemption.

Aided by a former circus clown Karina McCoy (Jordan Elizabeth) and partner Rex (Brad Potts), Ronan will stop at nothing to bring down a former friend Logan (Wade Gallagher), now a human trafficker kingpin behind the powerful Luna Cartel.

Winner of a prestigious Independent Spirit Award, Fury features colourful characters and heavily stylized atmosphere that will please fans of Sin City. Monster Pictures, the Australian and New Zealand rights holder to Fury will also be releasing the meta horror movie Mimesis on September 23.

Directed by Douglas Schulze, the film takes utilises a post-modern premise of unknowing participants whose reality turns nightmare after they attend a horror convention. Seven complete strangers whose only commonality is a love for classic era horror movies are invited to attend an exclusive fan party at a remote farm. But as the sun goes down, these strangers soon find themselves within a real life version of the 1968 George Romero cult classic Night of the Living Dead. "In a genre dominated by clich├ęs, remakes and sequels, Mimesis actually finds a way to make imitation fresh," notes About.com.

Mimesis will be available in both Blu-ray and DVD formats.
