Mysterious Skin in October

Tartan Video have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Mysterious Skin for 24th October 2005 priced at £19.99. When they were eight, Brian (Brady Corbett) and Neil (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) experience events that still greatly affect them ten years later. For one, he’s left with nightmares and is convinced he was abducted by aliens and is determined to find out where they came from. For the other he seeks out the love he once felt for the football coach who seduced him. When the boys reunite, they discover that their lives have been shaped by the same events.

Gregg Araki’s acclaimed MYSTERIOUS SKIN is a beautifully lyrical but poignant drama which demonstrates a new found maturity from his earlier edgy independent work such as The Doom Generation, Totally F***ed Up and The Living End. Based on the novel by Scott Heim, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Halloween:H20; Third Rock Form The Sun) and Brady Corbet (Thirteen, Thunderbirds) who give extraordinary performances, marking them both out as future stars. Amongst the supporting cast are Michelle Trachtenberg (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas)

  • Anamorphic Widescreen Presentation
  • DD2.0, DD5.1 & DTS 5.1
  • Director's Commentary
