Santa Sangre’ Gets 4-Disc Limited Edition UHD + Blu-Ray

Legendary filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo, The Holy Mountain) is lauded by critics and cult cinema enthusiasts alike for his avant-garde, violently surreal, brilliantly original features. Now, one of his finest films, Santa Sangre, is set for brand-new release that will deliver an experience like never before.

Severin Films is proud to announce the release of Santa Sangre Limited Dual Edition on 29 July 2024 Get ready for a breathtaking, epic odyssey through ecstasy and anguish, belief and blasphemy, beauty and madness – and learn about the surreal genius behind it all. This must-have set features the film on both 4K UHD and Blu-ray, with the 4K scan from the original negative supervised by Jodorowsky himself.

Hailed as “Extraordinary… mind-blowing” by The Guardian, “Visionary and haunting” by Rolling Stone and “A grand work of art, full of symbols and imagery that reach beyond language to something primal and original” according to AV Club, you can forget everything you have ever seen, as this modern masterpiece from director Alejandro Jodorowsky returns like never before, with more than eight hours of archival and all-new Special Features produced exclusively for this collection.

We meet Fenix, a young boy who has grown up in a circus in Mexico, where one day, he witnesses an unimaginably horrific incident… His mother, Concha, insane with rage, wreaks deranged revenge on her cheating husband. The young child, driven insane by the incident, is sent to an asylum where he must spend his childhood trying to overcome the devastating violence. When the boy (played by the director’s son Axel Jodorowsky) reaches adolescence, he’s released into the care of his unhinged and vengeful mother. This sets off a chain of increasingly crazed and disturbing events that need to be seen to be believed in an outrageously nightmarish trip, that takes us back and forth between its twisted timelines and haunting, hallucinogenic landscapes.

Take a mind-melting journey into the wild, the weird and the severely shocking with Santa Sangre, a true original, must-watch movie. Check out the full contents of the box set below;
