Alejandro Jodorowsky's murderous mime will be set loose on Blu-ray in January.

Severin will be bringing the cult 1990 film 'Santa Sangre' to Blu-ray on January 25.

The release will use the restored print of the uncut European version and will include over five hours of supplements.

'Santa Sangre' is a landmark acquisition for us," says Severin co-founder and CEO David Gregory. "Jodorowsky is one of the few true visionaries of cinema, and the opportunity to bring his modern masterpiece back to America is a genuine honor. Our restoration of the film, combined with an unprecedented collection of bonus features, will now introduce this brilliant film to a whole new audience."

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but the release will include: Audio commentary by Jodorowsky; Deleted scenes; Documentaries; New on-camera interviews with the majority of the film's cast and crew; Domestic and international trailers; and Coverage of Jodorowsky's forthcoming appearances in New York City during his first- ever American retrospective.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
