Brian Yuzna's Society Detailed

Posted January 17, 2014 03:57 PM by Webmaster

Second Sight FilmsIndependent British distributors Second Sight Films have detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of director Brian Yuzna's Society (1989), starring Billy Warlock, Devin DeVasquez, Ben Meyerson, and Evan Richards. The release will be available for purchase online and in shops across the United Kingdom on March 31.

Billy (Whitney) is a just a regular teenager growing up in late-80s California. Surrounded by rich, upscale friends Billy is soon introduced to the lifestyles of the Beverly Hills set. But the partying takes a turn for the weird when Billy is shown a video tape of his family getting up to some truly sick activities at a party, and Billy is about to step into the nightmarish and surreal world behind the facade of Hollywood hi-society.

Special Features:
  • Limited Slipcase Packaging for Blu-Ray with newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
  • New Audio Commentary with Director Brian Yuzna
  • Governor Of Society with Brian Yuzna
  • The Masters Of The Hunt with stars Billy Warlock, Devin Devasquez (pictured), Ben Meyerson And Tim Bartell
  • The Champions Of The Shunt with FX Artists Screaming Mad George, David Grasso and Nick Benson
  • Screaming Mad George music video

The cover is horrible. The movie is good.

Very cool, but I'm still eager to hear dates for Reanimator and it's Bride.

Stupendous, one of the great unsung horrors of the 80s I reckon, and looking like a beautiful release from a company that I wish could put out a bit more of this stuff more often. Bring it on, and bring Re-Animator on too!

Nowdays Second Sight is one of the laziest labels, with little to no regard when it comes to presenting their titles with respectful high quality video transfers.

Anyone want to bet that Society will have a transfer used from an old DVD era master? Just check out "Return Of The Living Dead", "Streets Of Fire" or "Quest For Fire", all of the from decade old masters, and they look it. Smeary, flat, nosiy, DNR, sharpening, black crush, fine grain is rarley visible and they all look more like video than film. Shape up!

@Dannalexcon, check your facts before attacking. SS is using the same HD master of Society that the German release did, and I assure you, it's not a dvd-era master. Society, Reanimator and Bride all received top notch restorations last year and they all look fantastic from early screens, and the Capelight Reanimator disc is further proof of that. SS has also released excellent transfers of Scanners, The Brood, and several other titles. Sure, the 3 that you mentioned in particular are not the greatest in terms of PQ, but the same RotLD transfer was released in region 1. That's MGMs HD master. Save your hostility for a situation that deserves it.

Also, their release of Return of the Living Dead - regardless of whether the master is old or not (I have no idea on that personally) - is the worldwide best release of the film EVER: original audio track (including the music that was a problem for the US release), the best the film has ever looked on home video, and the huge feature length documentary that is worth the price alone (plus other extras). Not too much to complain about in my opinion...

@reece

I own a copy of SS's edition of Scanners and if call that video transfer "excellent", you have very low standards. Sure it's decent looking, but execellent as in if they used a new/newer master, color corrected(it's way too green) and director or DoP supervised, give me a break.

And by the way I never mentioned the Re-Animator films and I would love to see the original getthe same transfer as the german BD(i've only seen caps from the first one) If Society gets the transfer you're talking about, well then great news and kudos to SS, like I said, they need to shape up.

I only mentioned the Re-animator films because they come from the same batch of recent Yuzna restorations, so their quality should be in line with the upcoming Society. I do believe that Scanners transfer is excellent (Criterion will be using the same master), but you are certainly entitled to your own opinion. I agree that the 3 earlier releases you mentioned are lacking in PQ, but I just wanted to point out that SS has had a great record since then.
