  • Terror Vision Releasing Satanik

    This was just announced:

    Satanik is a Spanish-Italian co-production that tells a story about Dr. Marnie Bannister, a scientist horrifically scarred from her past. In a lab in Madrid where she works, a colleague has successfully created a substance able to regenerate cells. However, the animals he experiments on become aggressive and dangerous. Dr. Bannister wants to be the guinea pig in the trial, but they refuse her. Therefore, she kills for the substance, takes it, and transforms into a beautiful young woman… and also a vicious killer who will go to great lengths to keep her secret.

    Terror Vision is thrilled to give Satanik its first ever legitimate US home video release with a new 2k transfer of the original 35mm camera negative. Complete with a new color grade, restoration, and new and archival extras all celebrating this oddity w/ the original Italian audio along with the English dub!

    Special Features:

    English Dub of Satanik

    Commentary with Eugenio Ercolani, Troy Howorth, and Nathanial Thompson

    Interview w/ Piero Vivarelli

    Interview w/ Patrizia Rosso

    Visual Essay: Black Fumetti by Eugenio Ercolani

    Visual Essay: Layer By Layer by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas

    Complete Original Soundtrack

    Newly Created Subtitles

    1968 / 86 min / Unrated / 2.35:1 / 2.0 Audio / Region A

    Notes On Restoration: Satanik was scanned and painstakingly restored in 2K from a mixture of vaulted elements. The material that was used was badly damage (fitting, right?) and took months to restore and to get right. We used prints in order to match the color timing correctly since Satanik has been misrepresented through a couple releases in other countries and bootlegs here in the US. You’ll notice that her hair isn’t purple and the colors are not very heavy like they have been in other releases.

    This is a very enjoyable film.

      FUCK. YES.

      Along with German Krimi, this is a sadly under-represented subgenre. Bring on Kriminal, Argoman the Fantastic Superman and The Mark of the Kriminal as well!!

        I remember seeing this via the old Retromedia DVD and not being blown away by it (though enjoying it), but I think a proper widescreen presentation would help a lot in this regard, that old DVD looked bad even by the standards of the day.

          Looks like fun and the print looks terrific.
