As we announced previously, Clive Barker’s Lord of Illusions is one of the latest Blu-Ray titles that Shout! Factory has added to their release line-up, as part of their Scream Factory label, releasing the lurid horror film as a Collector’s Edition on Blu-Ray in December.
From best-selling author and celebrated director Clive Barker comes a supernatural thriller that rips apart the boundaries between sanity and madness, and between the art of illusion and the terrifying forces of magic.
Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap) portrays Harry D’Amour, a private detective visiting Los Angeles on a routine investigation. Harry gets more than he bargains for when he encounters Philip Swan (Kevin J. O’Connor, The Mummy), a performer whose amazing illusions captivate the world. But are they really illusions? Harry isn’t so sure as he is thrust into a nightmare of murder, deception and terrifying assaults from the dark beyond. Famke Janssen (X-Men, Taken, Hemlock Grove) and Daniel von Bargen (Crimson Tide, The Faculty) also star.
Arriving as a 2-disc Blu-Ray Collector’s Edition, the final specs and details for the release have just been unveiled byShout! Factory, and we didn’t want to be remiss in telling you all about it.
On the first disc of the Blu-Ray set you will find the Theatrical Cut of the film in its 1080p high definition glory with a DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio track.
The second disc will feature an all-new high definition transfer of Clive Barker’s Director’s Cut of the film, complete with a Commentary Track by Director Clive Barker. A selection of Deleted Scenes with optional commentary by Clive Barker are also included on the disc.
The Featurette “A Gathering of Magic” with original behind-the-scenes footage is also part of the release, along with Unseen Rare Behind the Scenes Footage.
“Illusion of Reality” offers up vintage interviews and previously unseen On-Set Footage that provide a fascinating look into the making of the film.
A new Interview with Storyboard Artist Martin Mercer and a Photo Gallery will complete the release.
As mentioned previously, Scream Factory has once again created brand new cover artwork for the film, giving it a bold, fresh look. However, for all fans who prefer the movie’s original cover artwork, a reversible packaging inlay is provided that features the new artwork on one side and the original artwork on the flip-side.
