A Scorpion Release - Legendary international star Liv Ullmann (Cries and Whispers, Persona) stars as Leonor, in this chilling and poetic 1970s arthouse horror film about a medieval noblewoman whose untimely death haunts her husband Richard (Michel Piccoli, Belle de Jour, Contempt). After years of mourning and with Leonor’s body walled up in a tomb, Richard marries the much younger Catherine (Ornella Muti, Flash Gordon, Oscar, Oasis of Fear), but he still can’t find true happiness. Desperate the relive his life with Leonor, he makes a pact with the devil that indeed brings back his late wife, but she’s cold to the touch and now possesses an unearthly hunger that could destroy everyone around him. From director Juan Luis Buñuel (Expulsion of the Devil, The Lady with Red Boots), son of the legendary filmmaker, Luis Buñuel, and writers Jean-Claude Carrière (The Tin Drum, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie) and Bernardo Zapponi (Deep Red, Spirits of the Dead) comes a beautifully acted tale of an uncanny and tragic love, featuring a haunting score by Oscar® winner Ennio Morricone (The Thing, Spasmo) and stunning cinematography by Luciano Tovoli (Suspiria, The Passenger). Available for the first time in HD.
