A few weeks ago our UK readers got the good news that Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession is on its way to Blu-ray from Second Sight, and today we have a trailer, a couple of stills, and some new artwork to share.
As for why Second Sight made the sleeve change, the company’s rep Chris Holden stated, “We were able to access a higher quality theatrical poster image and have decided to stay truer to the original colours. We’re really pleased with the result!”
The disc releases with an amazing array of extras on July 29th.
A horror film like no other, Possession, directed by Andrzej Zulawski, is an intense and shocking experience that was originally banned in the UK on the notorious ‘Video Nasties’ list. Possession was nominated for a BAFTA and the Palme d’Or and stars Isabelle Adjani (Subway, La Reine Margot), whose 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.).
With their marriage in tatters Anna (Adjani) and Mark’s (Neill) tense relationship has become a psychotic descent into screaming matches, violence, and self-mutilation. Believing his wife’s only lover is the sinister Heinrich, Mark is unaware of the diabolical, tentacled creature that Anna has embarked on an affair with. The unhinged woman visits her monstrous lover in a deserted Berlin apartment and will stop at nothing to protect him.
With its dark subject matter and high gore quotient, Possession is not for the faint-hearted.
