Tags: Criterion, Disc Announcements (all tags)
Kaneto Shindo's 1968 ghost story is set for an October Blu-ray release.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion says 'Kuroneko' is coming to Blu-ray on October 18.
In this poetic and atmospheric horror fable, set in a village in war-torn medieval Japan, a malevolent spirit has been ripping out the throats of itinerant samurai. 'Kuroneko' ('Black Cat') is a spectacularly eerie twilight tale.
The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p transfer, an uncompressed mono soundtrack, and supplements include: Video interview with director Kaneto Shindo from the Directors Guild of Japan; New video interview with critic Tadao Sato; Theatrical trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by film critic Maitland McDonagh and an excerpt from film scholar Joan Mellen's 1972 interview with Shindo.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
