Philip Ridley's The Reflecting Skin quietly appears on U.S. DVD...

.
Well, if there's one benefit of the partnership between Miramax and Echo Bridge, it's that previously neglected titles have been suddenly landing in Wal Mart's dump bins with regularity. I actually found these discs at a flea market this morning from a guy who had crates of brand new Echo Bridge discs, that looked tagged for sale at WM, for two bucks a pop. I've been very curious to finally see the film after long hearing the lamenting of its fans that it seemed destined to never receive a re-release in North America. If it's like other EB Miramax discs, it'll be an average anamorphic widescreen presentation with zero extras. I'll be watching it tonight and will report back with thoughts and screenshots.

Poking around I'm seeing that the German Blu-ray is a filtered clumpy mess, so it'll be especially interesting to see how this DVD stacks up...

I remember putting this on my wishlist about three hundred years ago. Interesting.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
