Blue Underground Releasing Three-Disc Blu-ray Edition of Lucio Fulci’s Manhattan Baby

Published

on

Like all horror nuts, we’re absolutely obsessed with Lucio Fulci. I watched Zombi 2 (or Zombie Flesh Eaters, whatever it’s meant to be called) as a kid, and it made me want to seek out every other zombie movie in existence.

Blue Underground are bringing one of his lesser-known pictures to Blu-ray. The new edition of Manhattan Baby will include a ton of special features, a DVD of the film, and a soundtrack CD in addition to the Blu-ray disc. The new edition of Manhattan Baby will be available to pre-order from September 20, 2016, and will be released on October 25, 2016.

It will certainly be worth experiencing this less-seen film from the guy who made a zombie fight a shark.

From the Press Release:
A young girl on vacation in Egypt is given a mysterious charm, causing her archeologist father to be struck blind inside an unexplored pyramid tomb. But when the family returns home to Manhattan, a plague of supernatural evil and sudden violence follows. Can this ancient curse be stopped before it is unleashed on the streets of New York City?

Christopher Connelly (1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS), Laura Lenzi (THE ADVENTURES OF HERCULES II), Giovanni Frezza (THE HOUSE BY THE CEMTERY) and Carlo De Mejo (CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD) star in Italian shock master Lucio Fulci’s bizarre horror thriller, which combines elements of THE EXORCIST, THE AWAKENING, POLTERGEIST, and more. Also known as EYE OF THE EVIL DEAD and POSSESSED, MANHATTAN BABY has been newly transferred and fully restored in 2K from the original uncensored camera negative and comes fully loaded with exclusive new Extras produced for this release!

Starring Christopher Connelly (1990: BRONX WARRIORS, DJANGO STRIKES AGAIN), Laura Lenzi (THE ADVENTURES OF HERCULES II), Giovanni Frezza (THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, THE NEW BARBARIANS), Cinzia de Ponti (THE NEW YORK RIPPER, DEVIL FISH), Cosimo Cinieri (MURDER ROCK, THE NEW YORK RIPPER), and Carlo De Mejo (CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY)
