The Cremator (region-free blu-ray)
Presented from new HD materials, Second Run presents a special Blu-ray edition of one of its most enduringly popular titles Juraj Herz's The Cremator. the film has been described in many ways as surrealist-inspired horror film, as an expressionistic political allegory, a pitch-black comic satire and as a dark and disturbing tale of terror. This brilliantly chilling film, a unique mix of Psycho, Dr Strangelove and Repulsion, is set in Prague during the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia. It tells the story of one Karl Kopfrkingl (Rudolf Hruínský), a professional cremator, for whom the political climate allows free rein to his increasingly perverse and deranged impulses for the salvation of the world. Now more chillingly prescient than ever, The Cremator also contains another of master-composer Zdenk Lika's brilliantly inventive film scores. This new transfer disc also comes with brand new bonus features.
