Severin Films is not messing around when it comes to their April release slate. Leading the charge is the world 4K UHD premiere of Alejandro Jodorowsky's Mexican surrealist giallo, Santa Sangre.

A brand new 4K restoration approved by the man, himself at his preferred lab in Paris, this UHD promises to make you "Forget Everything You Have Ever Seen" with bold colors and incredible detail. Last year Severin released Santa Sangre for limited theatrical engagements with their own 4K restoration, but this new color grading promises to be even more eye-popping, with Jodorowsky himself even commenting that even he's never seen it look so good. Add to that over eight hours of new and archival features as well as a soundtrack CD curated by original composer Simon Boswell, and this is an incredible looking set that I cannot wait to get my hands on.

in addition to Santa Sangre, Severin are bringing a trio of animal attack exploitation classics to Blu-ray in William Girdler's Grizzly, and Day of the Animals, and the Blu-ray debut of Joe D'Amato's Deep Blood. While the Girdler films have been available previously, Severin have produced brand new extras for these releases while Deep Blood features a 2K scan from the original negative. 

Each of these four releases are available for pre-order now from Severin's website, along with a ton of super cool merch and exclusive slipcovers/artwork. Go to this link to place your order! Check out the details and some teaser trailers below for a taste of the madness.

It has been hailed as “extraordinary” (The Guardian), “visionary and haunting” (Rolling Stone) and “a grand work of art, full of symbols and imagery that reach beyond language to something primal and original” (AV Club). Now forget everything you have ever seen as the modern masterpiece from director Alejandro Jodorowsky returns like never before, with 8+ hours of archival & all-new Special Features. Severin Films is proud to present this 4-Disc Deluxe Edition of Jodorowsky’s epic odyssey through ecstasy and anguish, belief and blasphemy, beauty and madness – and the surreal genius behind it all – now featuring a 4K scan from the original negative supervised by the director himself.
