Bava classics to get Deluxe UK Blu-ray releases

Arrow Video is pleased to announce two deliciously horrific new deluxe edition Dual Format Blu-ray & DVD releases from the one and only godfather of Italian horror, MARIO BAVA.

Set for release on Monday January 28th, the Bava classics BLACK SUNDAY and LISA AND THE DEVIL will both get the ‘Arrow’ treatment, including never-before-seen versions of each film, a wealth of special features and bonus material (including interviews, introductions, deleted scenes, trailers, audio commentaries and collectors booklets) and exclusive interchangeable artwork.

This is the very first time that these two staples of Italian cult cinema will be available on Blu-ray in the UK.  Strictly limited Slipbox editions of each title (only 1000 will be made) are also available exclusively from the Arrow webstore. The Slipbox editions will feature a 4-panel reversible sleeve, comprised of 3 original posters and a newly commissioned artwork by British Horror illustrator Graham “Evil Dead” Humphreys. 

Mario Bava is widely credited as the man who kick-started the golden age of Italian horror. Never before had audiences around the world witnessed such slick and stylish production, combined with terrifying, supernatural imagery.

In yet more fantastic news for horror fans, Arrow Video are also able to confirm the deluxe editions of two further Bava classics this Spring. Black Sabbath and Baron Blood will both be released in April 2013, more info to follow shortly!
