First up, on November 15th Dead Ringers will be released on a Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray, then on November 22nd Rabid will be hitting shelves, two ultimate classics from David Cronenberg. Check out the full details on both editions below. DEAD RINGERS SYNOPSIS: “Claire Niveau (Geneviève Bujold) is in love with handsome Beverly. Or does she love Elliot? It’s uncertain because brothers Beverly and Elliot Mantle are identical twins sharing the same medical practice, apartment and women – including unsuspecting Claire. In portrayals that won the New York Film Critics Circle Best Actor Award, Jeremy Irons plays twin gynecologists whose emotional dependency collapses into mind games, madness and murder. David Cronenberg (The Fly) won the Los Angeles Film Critics Awards Best Director honors for melding split-screen techniques, body doubles and Iron’s uncanny acting into an eerie, fact-based tale.” SPECIAL FEATURES FOR DEAD RINGERS: DISC 1: High-Definition Transfer Of The Film (1.78:1 Aspect Ratio) NEW Audio Commentary With Writer William Beard, Author Of The Artist As Monster: The Cinema Of David Cronenberg Audio Commentary With Actor Jeremy Irons DISC 2: NEW 2K Scan At The Director’s Preferred Aspect Ratio (1.66:1) NEW Carey’s Story – An Interview With Heidi Von Palleske NEW Working Artist – An Interview With Stephen Lack NEW Connecting Tissues – An Interview With Special Effects Artist Gordon Smith NEW Double Vision – An Interview With Director Of Photography Peter Suschitzky Vintage interviews With Jeremy Irons, Director/Co-writer David Cronenberg, Producer Marc Boyman And Co-writer Norman Snider Vintage Behind-The-Scenes Featurette Original Theatrical Trailer RABID SYNOPSIS: “With Rabid, acclaimed director David Cronenberg (The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch) delivers a high-tension thriller filled with “zombified sluts and shock moments… an irresistible combination that Cronenberg handles well” (Almar Haflidason, BBC)!
