British distributors Network Releasing will bring to Blu-ray director John Krish's Unearthly Stranger (1964), starring John Neville, Philip Stone, Gabriella Licudi, Jean Marsh, and Warren Mitchell. The preliminary release date set by the studio is November 3rd.
Synopsis: A cleverly conceived, eerily atmospheric sci-fi chiller, Unearthly Stranger stars future Baron Munchausen John Neville as a scientist engaged in an experimental project like no other; Gabriella Licudi is his beautiful but otherworldly wife, who becomes the subject of great interest for his government superiors. This original, intelligent and compelling feature from award-winning Avengers director John Krish is presented here in a brand-new High Definition transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
TP91 is a secret and highly complex formula which will enable man to project himself through time and space; work in the field is conducted with the utmost security, using the finest scientific brains in the country. When Dr Munro succeeds in solving the first part of the formula, he is found dead before he is able to pass on the invaluable result, with the all-important paper bearing his calculations in ashes on his desk. His successor, government scientist Dr Mark Davidson, quickly senses that both he and his new wife are now in grave danger...
It's a strange movie...I like it a lot though.
It's featured in a terrific book called 'Offbeat' which is all about the great & strange but hard to find British movies of the past. Highly recommended reading!
