SECOND SIGHT TO RELEASE 4K TRANSFER OF SOCIETY
EDITOR'S NOTE: We have been informed that this release has been put on hold indefinitely, and will not get the 31st March release as noted in the details. We'll keep you posted with any further news.
UPDATE: Second Sight posted the following statement on their Facebook page:
We thank everyone for their patience with regard to SOCIETY and can now post a statement from the Executive Producer of the film with regard to the situation;
'The owners of the film 'Society' are currently working on resolving a legal issue which has recently arisen. Unfortunately this has meant that UK distributor Second Sight Films has not been able to release the film on the date planned.'
We will of course be posting updates as soon as we receive them and are instructing Amazon to remove the title until further notice.
Director Brian Yuzna's Society is one of the most shocking films of the 80s and now it's getting the high def treatment with its long-awaited Blu-ray release from Second Sight Films.
With a brand new 4K restoration, Society can now be seen in its full gory glory right through to its legendary finale that has to be seen to be believed. It will be released on Blu-ray and DVD complete with a slew of newly created special features and a limited edition Blu-ray slipcase with specially commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys on 31st March 2014.
Despite his family's privileged Beverly Hills lifestyle troubled teen Bill Whitney has always had a problem with 'fitting in'. His parents and sister seem disturbingly alien to him and lately he's witnessing some increasingly strange behaviour. His paranoia is soon justified, but nothing can prepare him for the unimaginable, depraved and perverse excesses that will be found beneath the surface of this 'elite' society.
Newly produced bonus features:
- New audio commentary with director Brian Yuzna
- 'GOVERNOR OF SOCIETY' with director Brian Yuzna
- 'THE MASTERS OF THE HUNT' with stars Billy Warlock, Devin
- DeVasquez, Ben Meyerson and Tim Bartell
- 'THE CHAMPIONS OF THE SHUNT' with FX Artists Screaming MadGeorge, David Grasso and Nick Benson
- SCREAMING MAD GEORGE MUSIC VIDEO
