'Black Magic Rites' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Aug 9, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The 1973 gothic horror is hitting Blu-ray in a few weeks!

In an early announcement to retailers, Kino has slated 'Black Magic Rites' for Blu-ray on August 21.

Director Renato Polselli ('Delirium') delivers yet another sadomasochistic shocker set in a gothic castle. Hundreds of years ago, a Jack Nelson (Mickey Hargitay) was restrained while he watched his lover Isabella (Rita Calderoni) burned at the stake for witchery. His threat that she will live again overtakes his life and he spends the next several centuries refining the method to reincarnate his precious lover. His obsession turns him into a monster, walking the Earth in search of virgins to kidnap in his attempt to raise his lover from the grave.

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but the Blu-ray will include the theatrical trailer.

The suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.95.
