It drew crowds and raves on the festival circuit and then in limited release over the last couple of years, and now Tilman Singer’s LUZ is poised to make its Blu-ray debut.

Altered Innocence and CAV Distributing have announced a March 10 street date for the all-region LUZ Blu-ray, which will present the movie in 2.40:1 anamorphic widescreen with DTS-HD 5.1 audio (in German, Spanish, & English, with English & Spanish subtitles). Luana Velis, Jan Bluthardt, Julia Riedler, Johannes Benecke, Nadja Stübiger and Lilli Lorenz star; the synopsis: “Fleeing from the grasp of a possessed woman, a distressed cabdriver begins a confession in a rundown police station that endangers everyone who crosses her path. Shot entirely on 16mm and featuring a hypnotic synth-driven score, this first-time feature film from director Tilman Singer pays homage to the Euro Horror sensibilities of Andrzej Żuławski’s POSSESSION while subverting and reinventing the genre along with contemporaries like Panos Cosmatos (MANDY).”

Special features are:

  • Two short films by Tilman Singer
  • New interview with director Tilman Singer
  • International teaser trailer
  • U.S. theatrical trailer
  • Pull-out poster
  • Reversible cover art

Retail price is $27.99. See our review of LUZ here, and an interview with Singer here.
