Eraserhead Makes Its Way into the Criterion CollectionOne of the most prestigious honors a film can receive is to be added to the Criterion Collection, which solidifies a movie’s status as an important piece of cinema. At long last the honor has been bestowed upon David Lynch’s Eraserhead, and we’ve got all the release details on tap for ya today!

Hitting both DVD and Blu-ray, the Criterion release of Lynch’s 1977 feature debut comes our way courtesy of a brand new 4K digital restoration with uncompressed stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray.

As always, a handful of new special features will be included on both discs, and you’ll find a full listing below along with the cover art.

In the film Henry Spencer (Jack Nance) is left alone in his apartment to care for his deformed baby and has a series of strange encounters with the beautiful girl across the hall and the woman living in his radiator.

Special Features:

  • Eraserhead Stories, a 2001 documentary by David Lynch on the making of the film
  • New high-definition restorations of six short films by Lynch: Six Figures Getting Sick (1967), The Alphabet (1968), The Grandmother (1970), The Amputee, Part 1 and Part 2 (1974), and Premonitions Following an Evil Deed (1995), all with video introductions by Lynch
  • New and archival interviews with cast and crew
  • Trailer
