A violent crime thriller & a cornerstone of horror feature amongst Eureka’s May line-up


Eureka! has announced its May 2022 line-up today. Featured amongst this announcement are a hard-hitting thriller with Oliver Reed in one of his best action performances, and a brand new 2K restoration of one of the finest and most enduringly mysterious of all horror films.

Spaghetti Western supremo Sergio Sollima (The Big Gundown; Face to Face; and Run, Man, Run) turns his directorial hand to violent and action-packed 1973 Italian crime thriller Revolver in the first of this month’s releases. Starring Oliver Reed (Gladiator) & sporting the tagline “Makes Death Wish look like wishful thinking!” Revolver is pumped full of high adrenalin action & enhanced still further by a soundtrack from the late, great maestro Ennio Morricone. The first print-run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase & Collector’s Booklet, and will be released on 16 May.

The Masters Of Cinema Series next & it’s a big release for all fans of the Collectors Series as Eureka proudly present a very special Limited Edition release of Carl Theodor Dreyer‘s 1932 early horror masterwork Vampyr for its 90th Anniversary. Presented from an all-new 2K restoration by the Danish Film Institute, supported by the MEDIA program Creative Europe, and taking more than a decade to complete – materials from several European archives (including the BFI, CNC and DFI) have been meticulously scanned and assessed to create the highest quality and most faithful version of Vampyr possible. A tour-de-force of supernatural phantasmagoria and creeping unease, via audacious camerawork and sound design Vampyr remains a cornerstone work of the horror genre. The film will be released theatrically on 20 May, followed by the Limited Edition Blu-ray release on 30 May.
