Preview: Split Second (Limited Edition Bluray)

101 Films presents Split Second (1992), a dark, dystopian thriller starring Rutger Hauer as a veteran detective on the trail of a serial killer in a rainswept future London. Co-starring Alastair Duncan and Kim Cattrall and supported by a host of legendary British character actors, this newly restored presentation of the film is complemented with extensive new interviews with the filmmakers.

Title 015 on the 101 Films Black Label, this limited edition version comes with slipcase and booklet and will be released on July 27th 2020 and can be pre-ordered HERE.

The year is 2008, and heavy rainfall has flooded large areas of London. Rookie police officer Dick Durkin (Alastair Duncan) is assigned to partner maverick Harley Stone (Rutger Hauer), a burnt-out and highly cynical homicide detective who was unable to prevent the murder of his partner by a serial killer three years earlier. Following a spate of murders, it appears that the killer has returned, and Stone and Durkin are assigned to the case. After investigating the scenes of several slayings, they appear no closer to identifying the killer, but a mysterious connection to Stone keeps the trail warm. As each gruesome murder draws the detectives closer to the killer, the killer gets closer to them, until they must finally confront the true evil that lurks below the streets of London.
