Verboden Video has given an update on their Blu-ray release of the 1989 cult sci-fi film Split. The release will include the never-before-seen 105 minute original cut of the film, from a print that was struck for a Cannes submission in 1987!
This version contains 21 minutes of additional, brain bending material, featuring more time with the Artist, Susan, The Director, and some great, long-lost visual sequences! Available on November 13th. Pre-order now!
In the film, "Starker is the one man in a society of complacent people who can see the stifling control exerted on humankind by beings from another dimension. Living on garbage and in ever-changing disguise, he bounces from one person to another, trying to wake the world from its slavery. But as his ideas start to gain traction, he becomes the singular target of the Agency Director, a formidable dictator. Starker must race against advanced surveillance technology and evade countless agents to get his message out to the masses before he is neutralized by the forces of order."
As much entertaining science fiction, as it is an illustration of chaos theory applied to human nature and featuring pioneering computer effects by MacArthur Genius Grant winner Robert Shaw, Split is the fiercely unique vision of savant mathematician and artist Chris Shaw.
Includes both the original release version and the never before released extended cut of the film.
Director Commentary on both versions of the film.
Unused footage with director commentary.
New interview with actress Joan Bechtel.
New interview with actor John Flynn.
Original, remastered trailer.
English SDH on both cuts of the film.
