20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray legendary director Francis Ford Coppola's Twixt (2011), starring Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, and Joanne Whalley. The preliminary release date set by the studio is July 30h.
Synopsis: A writer with a career in decline arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He's unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.
I have an no-frills import of this. It felt like Coppola was experimenting with digital, but Kilmer is effective, and despite its limited budget and scale, I thought this was a worthy psychological/supernatural thriller. I will pick this up if there are some decent extras.
I saw this 2 years ago at the Toronto International Film Festival.. I chose it since the it said that it was a return to Coppola's roots in the Horror Genre.. It was the 2nd film at the Princess of Wales theater after the stellar Pearl Jam Documentary.. But alas I walked out extremely disappointed with the end result... I'm not surprised that this is getting a Blu-Ray release since I don't remember it ever hitting theaters.. I wish that the 3D effect was better done even though Coppola stated that it was his first attempt at trying something new.. I had such high hopes for the film and even though I saw Val Kilmer at the screening, it didn't give me much incentive to stick around for the Q and A.
