Independent British distributors NetworkDVD have revealed that they are planning to release a Dual Format edition of Alfred Hitchcock's The Lodger (1927), starring Ivor Novello, Marie Ault, Arthur Chesney, and June. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is September 24th.
The release will feature a newly commissioned score by producer, composer and performer Nitin Sawhney, and will come with a bonus CD.
During a rash of gruesome murders by a serial killer known only as "The Avenger", a mysterious stranger arrives in London and rents a room with the Bunting family. Intriguing and reclusive, the Buntings' new guest soon earns the interest of their beautiful daughter. But when the lodger's strange habits and odd hours start to coincide with the Avenger's killings, the Buntings suspect they may have let a murderer into their home... and given him the key to destroying their lives!
