Anchor Bay announces new titles
After what seems like an eternity, Anchor Bay have finally announced more titles for the upcoming months, together with more details on some of the titles we already knew about.
Firstly, The Wicker Man will feature a 50-minute documentary plus numerous other extras, details to be confirmed. They are trying to obtain the longest possible version of the film.
Secondly, Manhunter will be released before Valentine's Day next year, alongside a Limited Edition version including the Director's Cut, personally supplied by Michael Mann. This promises to be far superior to the lacklustre BMG release.
Also on the cards for Valentine's Day will be the notorious Candy.
Heathers will feature interviews (including Winona Ryder) and commentary tracks.
Lust in the Dust will feature a tribute to its late director Paul Bartel.
Nightwatch will feature a commentary by its director.
Cut & Run will be the uncut version, with the softer sequences present as a supplement, plus (possibly) a director's commentary.
And this is what their release schedule currently looks like:
