One of my favorite campy films has always been Elvira Mistress of the Dark. I am lucky enough to have the DVD, and in fact just watched it a few months ago. I try to put it in every few months as it truly is an extremely unappreciated comedy. Well if your also a fan you will be excited hear that its coming to Blu-ray in April.
Entertainment Weekly announced that Cinespectral Films from Germany will be releasing this is a limited edition 3 disc set. No word on if it will be a Region Free disc, but I am betting it will be Region 2 only.
This new version of the movie was scanned from the original interpositive using a 4K scanner and will be available as part of a collector’s edition 3-disc set, comprising two Blu-rays and a PAL DVD, limited to just 3,000 copies. Purchasers of the 3-disc mediabook will have a choice between three variant front-cover designs: the original theatrical artwork, the promotional press kit artwork, and an all-new commissioned retro-inspired piece by German horror director Andreas Marschall. Each variant is limited to 1,000 units. Blu-ray extras will include an introduction by director James Signorelli, a new documentary called Too Macabre — The Making of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, a featurette on the film’s special effects team, three never-before-released behind-the-scenes clips, seven original storyboard sequences, trailers, the film’s script, and a stills gallery. The set also features three commentaries: a 2012 track featuring Peterson and costars Edie McClurg and John Paragon, and new commentaries with Signorelli (hosted by former Fangoria editor Tony Timpone) and with webmaster Patterson Lundquist. Finally, an illustrated 60-page booklet with never-before-seen production stills and international artwork is also included in the package
A Pre-Order Link is not up yet, but you can bet I will share it here, after I order mine of course.
