Fantoma Films releases Blind Beast

The 1969 Japanese film Blind Beast has rarely been seen on American shores. Fantoma Films has gone to great lengths to remedy that situation with a new DVD of the film this December.

A blind sculptor kidnaps an artists’ model and imprisons her in his warehouse studio – a shadowland of perverse monuments to the female form. Here a deranged passion play of sensual and sexual obsession is acted out in world where sight is replaced by touch. Japanese New Wave master Yasuzo Masumura’s beautiful and terrifying tale of erotic horror, comes from a short story by Edogawa Rampo.

The film will be presented in anamorphic widescreen for the first time in America. The audio will be Japanese with optional English subtitles. The DVD will also contain a theatrical trailer, a photo gallery and a Yasuzo Masumura biography and filmography.

“Blind Beast” is coming out of the darkness on December 4th. Pick it up for $29.99.
