'Mysterious Skin' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Feb 11, 2014 at 01:00 PM PST by

Gregg Araki's 2004 drama heads to Blu-ray next month. Pre-orders are available on Amazon.

In an early announcement to retailers, Strand Releasing is working on 'Mysterious Skin' for Blu-ray on March 18.

Brian Lackey (Brady Corbet) went missing for five hours when he was eight-years-old, an event that he remains convinced was the result of alien abduction. In the same small Kansas town, teenage hustler Neil McCormick (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a confused outsider with a promiscuous mother (Elisabeth Shue) and who was abused as a child by his Little League coach (Bill Sage). Locked into their own obsessions, both young men pursue a self-destructive path that will lead them towards each other, and will result in each of them trying to exorcise the demons of their past.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Commentary Track with Gregg Araki, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Brady Corbet; Deleted Scenes (SD); Book Reading (SD); Audition Tape (SD); and International Trailer (SD).

Blu-ray exclusives include: Isolated Score & Effects Track (DTS-HD); Conversation between Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Brady Corbet at Sundance 2014 (HD); Director Introduction (HD); Novelist Scott Heim Reflects 10 Years Later (HD); Script/Sketches Gallery; Photo Gallery Featuring Never Before Seen Photos; and US Trailer (HD).

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
