Andrzej Zulawski's POSSESSION Slithers Onto Blu-ray July 29th From Second Sight UK
Relative newcomer to the genre block Second Sight Films in the UK is the first company to get their paws on Possession for Blu-ray and I couldn't be more excited after having experienced their fantastic releases so far. Their Blu-ray discs of The Return of the Living Dead, Basket Case, and From Beyond have all earned my highest marks, and having seen some stills of the restoration of Possession, I think we're all in for a real treat. They are also adding some really great sounding bonus materials, which makes this an even more exciting release to look forward to. Here are the details from Second Sight:
'An unsung masterpiece...the film that prefigures everything that's in Antichrist'
'No Exorcist can handle Possession'
A horror film like no other, Possession, directed by Andrzej Żuławski, is an intense shocking experience that was originally banned in the UK on the notorious 'Video Nasties' list. Now this hugely controversial film makes its long-awaited Blu-ray debut courtesy of Second Sight Films.
Possession was nominated for a BAFTA and the Palme d'Or and stars Isabelle Adjani (Subway, La Reine Margot), who's astonishing performance earned her Best Actress awards at the Cannes Film Festival and the French Césars alongside Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Omen III - The Final Conflict). The film features stunning special effects by Carlo Rambaldi (Alien, E.T) and comes to Blu-ray with an amazing array of bonus features on 29 July 2013.
