Andrzej Zulawski's Possession Detailed

Posted April 26, 2013 07:48 PM by Webmaster

Second Sight FilmsBritish distributors Second Sight Films have revealed the supplemental features that will be included on their upcoming Blu-ray release of controversial Polish director Andrzej Zulawski's Possession (1981), starring Isabelle Adjani, Sam Neill, and Margit Carstensen. A preliminary release date, however, is yet to be announced.

A horror film like no other, Possession is an intense, shocking experience that was banned in the UK as a 'video nasty'. With its dark subject matter and high gore quotient, it's not for the faint hearted.

With their marriage in pieces Anna and Mark's 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 demonic, tentacled cre ature that Anna has hidden away for liaisons in a deserted apartment and will stop at nothing to protect.

Written and directed by Andrzej Żuławski, Possession is a deeply unsettling experience, aided by the horrific special effects of the great Carlo Rambaldi (Deep Red, Close Encounters, Alien). The film, though banned on video, was nominated for a BAFTA and the prestigious Palme d'Or Award and Adjani's astonishing performance earned her Best Actress awards at the Cannes Film Festival and the French CÚsars.

Special Features:
  • The Other Side of the Wall - The Making of Possession
  • Audio Commentary with co-writer Frederic Tuten, moderated by Daniel Bird
  • Repossessed - The film's UK and US reception, the 'video nasties' furore and the US recut
  • A Divided City The Berlin locations
  • The Sounds of Possession - An exclusive interview with composer Andrzej Korzynski about his working relationship with Andrzej Zulawski
  • Our Friend in the West - An exclusive interview with legendary producer Christian Ferry
  • Basha - A new featurette on Polish artist Barbara 'Basha' Baranowska, who created the famed poster for Possession.
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Andrzej Zulawski Interview

I have a region free player, so I will just import this. North America takes way too long to release films like this. UK gets so many top notch releases.

Please be Region-Free. Or at least get a US release later this year (preferrably by Criterion). I've been dying to watch this film for a couple of years now.

Mondo Vision is restoring this one for the U.S. market. The Blu is unconfirmed at this point, but with Second Sight releasing it as such they would be silly not to do the same.

From what I last heard, Mondo Vision were pretty far along with this. I wouldn't be surprised if they get their Region A disc out this year. Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't, either.

It's funny how, in these tough times, Second Sight and Arrow seem to be going from strength to strength with some really cool releases.

Second Sight recently posted that Zulawski was color timing the film scene by scene, and is approving that transfer. If the Mondo Vision US release doesn't use the same director-approved transfer, then they are dropping the ball.

Great news! One of the best horror films of the eighties, a truly haunting film.

Between the USA Scream Vincent Price set, Criterion's Devil's Backbone (and Eraserhead, when that gestating rumor is finally put to rest), De Palma's The Fury.... this is a wonderful year for artsy horror. Possession is one of the absolute Best.

Mondo Vision so far has only released on DVD. The 4 Zulawski films they did were of superior quality (within the limitations of the DVD forrmat, of course) and I am wondering if they shouldn't consider making them available on blu, too. Is a UK release of Possession going to be uncut since it was banned there for so long? This is what worries me.
