Possession Limited Edition (2,000 Units)

Independent U.S. Distributor Mondo Vision has announced some pretty exciting Blu-Ray news for Horror fans! Later this year, they will be releasing Andrzej Zulawski’s 1981 film Possession in both Limited and Special editions. The unique and bizarre flick stars Isabelle Adjani (Nosferatu the Vampyre) and Sam Niell (Jurassic Park, In The Mouth of Madness). Though it’s hard to fit this film into one specific genre, it absolutely contains elements of Horror.

 

The most exciting aspect of this announcement for collector’s is the Limited Edition’s packaging, which “features a fully illustrated matte laminated Hardcover Box with magnetic enclosure + a separate Hardcover Slipcase with die-cut window. The slipcase is fully wrapped with import European blue velvet. The die-cut window reveals the original poster art from the magnetic box once the slipcase is on. Silver hot stamping is used throughout the packaging to highlight the title and the credits. Inside of the magnetic box features a foldout matte laminated 6-panel digipak, shiny black trays to hold the Discs + a Hardcover magnetic pocket to store the 84pg booklet and the remaining contents. The silver hot stamping theme is carried throughout the inside.”

 

This specific set is limited to only 2,000 copies, so rest assured we will update you when it’s available for Pre-Order. In the meantime, here’s the full press release from Mondo Vision:
