'The Mephisto Waltz' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Tue Feb 14, 2017 at 10:00 AM PST by

The 1971 horror film starring Alan Alda, Jacqueline Bisset, and Barbara Parkins is planned for Blu-ray in April.

In an early announcement to retailers, Kino says 'The Mephisto Waltz' will hit Blu-ray on April 18.

Alan Alda plays a classical piano player on the rise who befriends a famous player himself who's at death's door. Unknown to Alda, the guy is a satanist, who arranges to have their souls switch places at his death, so that he can be young again and continue to play piano (thus needing a skilled piano player like Alda to switch bodies with).

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Audio Commentary by Film Historian Bill Cooke; Audio Commentary by actress Pamelyn Ferdin, moderated by filmmaker Elijah Drenner; and Trailer Gallery.
