    The HD master is currently undergoing some additional restoration work. Some digital clean up and new color grading. Extras are pretty much all done. Working on the cover right now too. We're hoping for a late winter/early spring release.

    MM posted an updated on this on Facebook earlier today.

    COVER AND SPECS REVEAL!

    Coming this summer we will finally unveil the world premiere Blu-ray of Kim Ki-young's utterly bizarre masterpiece WOMAN CHASING THE BUTTERFLY OF DEATH!

    Like a kind of crazy cinematic ghost train ride, WOMAN CHASING THE BUTTERFLY OF DEATH takes us on a journey deep into the darkness of one man’s fears and fantasies. That man is Young-gul, a lonely and rather morbid student in late 1970’s South Korea. Narrowly surviving a murder-suicide attempt by a woman wearing a butterfly pendant, he next finds himself besieged by a seemingly insane bookseller who claims he can never die. Even after Young-gul burns the man’s body his skeleton comes back to taunt him. As if that weren’t enough, the poor student then finds himself the victim of a beautiful thousand year old woman (she looks about 25) who says she is hungry and want to eat his liver….

    The director, Kim Ki-young, was one of Korea’s most successful film makers. His 1960 production THE HOUSEMAID is now a recognized classic of world cinema. With this film he goes far beyond the bounds of the real and takes us into a world where anything seems possible, a world where a kind of dream logic rules. Almost impossible to summarize, the film is nevertheless insanely enjoyable. A real one of a kind production that opens our eyes to the limitless possibilities of cinema.

    The numbered Red Case Limited Edition will feature an exclusive reversible cover featuring new art by Naomi Butterfield and Mathieu St-Pierre on either side, and a booklet featuring a brand new essay on the film by writer Kelley Dong.

    DISC FEATURES
    Brand new 2K restoration from the original negative
    Region free
    Korean language track with newly translated optional English subs

    Looks like Jared went all out for this release. Worth the wait. Naomi's cover art is definitely my preference.

    This film looks loony as hell!

    If it's on sale & would be shipped with The Killer of Dolls, I'll order both, for sure.
