Plot Sypnosis:

 Set during the height of the Vietnam War and deep in the swamps of Louisiana, a group of National Guardsmen have been ordered to partake in a simulated jungle exploration in an isolated part of Cajun country. After getting lost during the training mission, the soldiers commandeer canoes belonging to the locals in order to take a shortcut. When the rightful owners discover the soldiers with their property, the situation spirals out of control leaving one man dead and the soldiers caught in a deadly game of retribution. What follows is a bloody fight for survival as, with only their wits and blanks for ammunition, the soldiers will have to journey deeper and deeper into the bayou as they’re forced to face the brutal reality of Cajun justice...

An intensely violent war metaphor filmed on location in the Louisiana Bayou, director and co-writer Walter Hill’s (The Warriors, 48 Hrs.) acclaimed “backwoods” survival thriller, SOUTHERN COMFORT features an all-star cast headlined by Oscar winner Keith Carradine (Nashville), Emmy winner Powers Booth (Red Dawn), Fred Ward (Short Cuts), T.K. Carter (John Carpenter’s The Thing), and Emmy winner Peter Coyote (Bitter Moon). Vinegar Syndrome Ultra is proud to present SOUTHERN COMFORT in 4K UHD for the first time, newly restored and loaded with extras.
