Jess Franco's 'The Mistresses of Dr. Jekyll' Headed for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Jun 13, 2016 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The 1964 horror flick will be getting the Blu-ray treatment this year.

In an early announcement to retailers, Redemption will be releasing 'The Mistresses of Dr. Jekyll' on Blu-ray later this year.

Melissa, an attractive Austrian college student, travels to Holfen to spend the Christmas holidays at the castle of her uncle, Dr. Conrad Fisherman, but the mood she encounters there is hardly festive. Her uncle's behavior is cold and furtive, and her Aunt Ingrid is perpetually drunk, trying to forget the night so many years ago when Conrad caught her making love with his brother Andros and murdered him. Melissa's chance discovery of a photograph of her late father, whom she never knew, awakens her curiosity about the past, just as Dr. Fisherman, a disciple of the mad Dr. Orloff, awakens the corpse of Andros as a human automaton with a high-frequency command to kill...!

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but the film has been newly remastered in 2K and the release will include an audio commentary by Tim Lucas and more.
