    Kino Releasing Paul Verhoeven's Spetters

    Coming June 19th on DVD and Blu-ray!
    Brand New 4K Master!

    Spetters (1980) in Dutch with optional English subtitles
    • Audio Commentary by Director Paul Verhoeven
    • Animated Image Gallery
    • Trailers for Spetters and Flesh + Blood

    From legendary filmmaker Paul Verhoeven (Robocop) and screenwriter Gerard Soeteman (Soldier of Orange) comes this UNRATED DIRECTOR'S CUT of the explosive, fast-paced and thrilling coming-of-age drama. Raw, intense and unabashedly sexual, Spetters is a wild ride that will knock the unsuspecting for a loop. Rien, Eef and Hans are three young guys stuck in an industrial town on the outskirts of Rotterdam. They couldn't be more different except for one thing: their shared passion for motorcycle racing, which each sees as his ticket to a better life. But a deeper passion will soon rule each of their lives, when a sexy, ambitious blonde (Renée Soutendijk, The 4th Man) comes between them and provokes unforeseen events that will rock their worlds. Co-starring Rutger Hauer (Flesh + Blood) and Jeroen Krabbé (The Fugitive).

    Nothing much new I guess besides the 4k master.
