Henri‑Georges Clouzot's 1954 French thriller is bound for Blu-ray mid-May.
The Criterion Collection has announced 'Diabolique' for a Blu-ray release on May 17.
Before 'Psycho,' 'Peeping Tom,' and 'Repulsion,' there was 'Diabolique', a heart-grabbing benchmark in horror filmmaking, featuring outstanding performances by Simone Signoret, Vera Clouzot, and Paul Meurisse.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a uncompressed monaural soundtrack, and supplements include: Selected-scene commentary by French-film scholar Kelley Conway; New video interview with Serge Bromberg, codirector of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno; New video interview with horror film expert Kim Newman; New and improved English subtitle translation; and a booklet featuring a new essay by film critic Terrence Rafferty.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
