De Palma’s Obsession Gets More Tempting On Blu-ray In January

If you’ve found yourself sucked into the Brian De Palma documentary on Netflix, you’ll be obsessed to see Obsession when it comes out on Blu-ray on January 15 from Scream Factory. The movie allowed De Palma to pay tribute to Alfred Hitchcock with a script by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver). He even was able to get Bernard Herrmann (Psycho) to score the film. Obsession looks great thanks to the cinematography of legendary Vilmos Zsigmond. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
