Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 giallo-esque horror picture Don’t Look Now is getting a Criterion release. The film has been out of print for a spell but fortunately Criterion plans to rectify that with a feature packed release.

The film concerns a couple (played by Donald Sutherland and Julie Christy) who lose their young daughter in a tragic drowning accident. When the couple travels to Venice, they encounter two women, one of whom claims to have a message for them from their daughter. The encounter drives the couple to a place of obsession and leads to a series of life threatening encounters and ultimately finds them crossing paths with a killer.

The film will see re-release on DVD and Blu-ray February 10, 2015. The disc can be pre-ordered via the Criterion website and is also available on Amazon.

The features on the Criterion release will include:

  • New 4K digital restoration, approved by director Nicolas Roeg, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-rayNew conversation between the film’s editor, Graeme Clifford, and film writer Bobbie O’Steen
  • “Don’t Look Now,” Looking Back, a short 2002 documentary featuring Roeg, Clifford, and cinematographer Anthony Richmond
