CHOKE DVD– 5 Copies


To celebrate the DVD release of the subversive comedy CHOKE, which arrives in shops on 17th February, we’ve joined forces with Twentieth Century Fox home Entertainment to give you the chance of winning a copy of the DVD, which includes an array of exclusive features:




  • Audio commentary with Writer/Director/Actor Clark Gregg and Actor Sam Rockwell

  • Five deleted scenes with optional audio commentary with Clark Gregg and Sam Rockwell

  • Gag reel

  • A conversation with Clark Gregg and Chuck Palahniuk

  • “My Name is Victor and I’m a Sex Addict” featurette

  • “A Mother’s Love” featurette

  • “From the Los Angeles Film Festival”

  • Fox Movie Channel Presents: Casting Session


From maverick author Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club) and breakout new writer-director Clark Gregg comes the subversively comedic tale of Victor Mancini (the amazing Sam Rockwell), con artist, sex addict, colonial village re-enactor, angst-filled son, serial restaurant choker . . . and unsuspecting romantic antihero for our unsettling times.



Victor (Rockwell), in an effort to pay for his demented mother’s (Academy Award® winner Angelica Huston) private healthcare, engages in a brazen scam. While dining in upscale restaurants, he deliberately chokes on his food, allowing himself to be “saved” by wealthy good Samaritans who grow so close to him in the wake of their heroic Heimlich Maneuvers, they lavish him with cheques. His day job at a historical theme park is no more conventional; and when he isn’t busy being a put upon Pilgrim, gagging violently or visiting the mother who doesn’t recognize him, Victor is cruising sexaholic recovery meetings for action.



It’s no wonder Victor feels adrift. But when his declining mother hints at the identity of his long lost father, Victor hopes it can finally provide the answers he has been searching for. With the help of his fellow sex addict Denny (Brad William Henke), Victor befriends his mother’s alluring young physician (Golden Globe® nominee Kelly Macdonald), who leads him to believe his origins may be far more shockingly divine than he ever could have imagined. So is Victor Mancini still the no-good loser he always thought he would be, or could he possibly be some crazy kind of saviour?
