Plot Synopsis:

In the early eighties British enfant terrible Ken Russell travelled to America and placed his unorthodox imprint on a pair of US movies. The first was the Altered States, so out-there its screenwriter disowned it. The second was the equally crazy Crimes of Passion, starring Kathleen Turner (Body Heat, Serial Mom) at the height of her powers. Fashion designer Joanna Crane (Turner) leads a double life. By night she is China Blue, a prostitute who's attracted the unwanted attention of two men. One is a sexually frustrated private detective hired by her employees. The other is psychopathic priest (played by Norman Bates himself, Anthony Perkins) in possession of a murderous sex toy. With its outré screenplay by Barry Sandler and over the top score by Rick Wakeman, Crimes of Passion may just be the most outrageous Ken Russell film ever made - and that's quite some feat! Bonus features include: Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Twins of Evil, Theatrical trailer, Home movie footage of Ken Russell visiting Florida for a retrospective screening of Crimes of Passion at the 2009 Orlando Film Festival, Brand-new interview with Sandler recorded especially for this release, Seven deleted/extended scenes with optional commentary by Sandler, Audio commentary with director Ken Russell and producer-screenwriter Barry Sandler, Optional subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing, Brand new 2K restoration of the film from original film materials, High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations of the directors cut and unrated versions of the film, Illustrated booklet containing new writing by Ken Russells biographer, Paul Sutton, correspondence between Russell and Kathleen Turner, and an on-set interview with Russell
