Jim Van Bebber's acclaimed biopic of Charles Manson heads to Blu-ray in June.
In an early announcement to retailers, Severin is prepping 'The Manson Family' for a Blu-ray release on June 11.
It has been hailed as amazingly disturbing (Dread Central), extreme and uncompromised (Roger Ebert) and one of the best true crime films ever made (DVD Talk). Now from the punishing mind of writer/producer/director Jim Van Bebber comes his epic of hallucinatory horror like you've never seen it before: This is the ultimate account of Charles Manson and his followers, a blood-soaked saga that takes you from their drug-fueled orgies, to their grisly massacres, and into the legacy of depravity that survives today. It is a singular vision of nihilistic evil that remains alarmingly original, unapologetically graphic and shockingly real. These are the most infamous crimes of our time as depicted by one of the most dangerous underground filmmakers of all time. This is 'The Manson Family.'
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Audio Commentary with Director Jim VanBebber; Gator Green - Exclusive First Release of VanBebber's latest short; Exclusive New Interview With Phil Anselmo; The VanBebber Family - Uncut Version of 'Making Of' Documentary Featuring Interviews with Cast and Crew; In The Belly of The Beast - Documentary On the 1997 Fantasia Film Festival; Interview With Charles Manson; Deleted Scenes; and Theatrical Trailers.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.95.
