Posted Wed Jun 20, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Dinner will be served when Paul Bartel's 1982 black comedy hits Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, the Criterion Collection is preparing 'Eating Raoul' for Blu-ray on September 25.

A mix of hilarious, anything-goes slapstick and biting satire of me-generation self-indulgence, Eating Raoul marks the end of the sexual revolution with a thwack.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, an uncompressed mono soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio commentary featuring screenwriter Richard Blackburn, art director Robert Schulenberg, and editor Alan Toomayan; The Secret Cinema (1968) and Naughty Nurse (1969), two short films by director Paul Bartel; Cooking Up Raoul, a new documentary about the making of the film, featuring interviews with stars Mary Woronov, Robert Beltran, and Edie McClurg; Gag reel of outtakes from the film; Archival interview with Bartel and Woronov; Trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by film critic David Ehrenstein.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
