Arrow to Release Brian De Palma's The Fury, Sisters, and Phantom of the Paradise (Updated)

Posted May 22, 2013 02:20 PM by Webmaster

Arrow VideoBritish distributors Arrow Video have revealed that they are preparing a Blu-ray release of director Brian De Palma's The Fury (1978), starring Kirk Douglas, John Cassavetes, Carrie Snodgress, and Charles Durning. Exact technical specs and supplemental features to be included on this upcoming release are yet to be revealed.

Kirk Douglas plays Peter Sandza, a Secret Service agent whose son Robin has psychic powers. Whilst holidaying with Robin and fellow agent Childress (John Cassavetes) they are attacked by what seems to be a gang of terrorist and Robin is kidnapped. However, when Sandzer discovers that the attack was masterminded by Childress, who wants to corrupt then sell Robin's powers, he enlists the help of another psychic (Amy Irving) to track his son down - but will they be too late?

Update

Arrow Video have just informed us via email that they are also bringing to Blu-ray Brian De Palma's Sisters (1973) and Phantom of the Paradise (1974).

Sisters

Horror centering on Danielle (Margot Kidder), a young woman who apparently murders her date, and Grace (Jennifer Salt), a nosy reporter and Danielle's neighbour who sees the whole thing. Things get strange when it is revealed that Danielle was a siamese twin, and her nasty twin sister may have something to do with the murder.

Phantom of the Paradise

Brian De Palma's glam rock version of the famous 'Phantom of the Opera' story stars singer-songwriter Paul Williams as Swan, a music business tycoon who steals the work of talented composer Winslow Leach (William Finley), along with his girlfriend Phoenix (Jessica Harper). Leach plans to get revenge, but his plans soon go horribly wrong and he ends up with a terrible facial disfigurement. Assuming a mask to hide his injuries and his identity, Leach's next move is to sign a pact with a Swan to write a rock opera version of 'Faust'.

Nice. I'm sure it will be a more notable bluray release than the Twilight Time one.

Oh please, Scream Factory get a hold of Phantom of the Paradise. A true cult classic that would be an amazing blu. I hope Criterion brings Sisters to a bluray upgrade.

In for "Sisters" and "Phantom". I recently saw Sisters for the first time on DVD(Criterion), stylish movie with lots of De Palma's gimmicks and it shows promise of things that were to come, the PQ on the DVD was in pretty shabby condition so a cleaned up BD is a very welcome surprise.

I've actualy never seen Phantom so it will be very interesting considering the subject matter which isn't typically De Palma.

I think i have the Ultimate Edition Blu-ray of Phantom of the paradise which will play in US blu-ray players, its the extras that are PAL encoded and wont play unless you have a multi standard player. But I agree if like to see Shout Factory, Olive Flims or Criterion to release these here in the states

Damn Arrow for region locking their releases. I so want The Fury, with better PQ than the Twilight Time release. I am not paying $30 for a blu-ray they released.

Lacrymosa: Peeping Tom is owned by Studio Canal, Criterion doesn't have the rights anymore. If you're region free, the SC blu is fantastic z

Looks as if Arrow is on something of Brian De Palma spree lately, with Dressed to Kill and now these three.

Glad to see Phantom of the Paradise back in circulation. I ordered the French blu some time ago from importcds, but think it is OOP and never coming. Very afraid I'll have to double dip on Fury too, will wait for a review.
Wonder how the Japanese release of Sisters will be in July, or if a US version is coming, ahhh the indecision!
Does Criterion still have the rights to Sisters?

HA! "Phantom of the Paradise"....that takes me back to my youth! Early days of cable television in my area and pre-HBO premium channels like "Spectrum 2"....when they seemed to have that movie on just about every day (or at least in my memory). Gonna have to get this.
