Upcoming Blu-ray releases from Darkside Releasing – Early 2019.


We at Darkside Releasing are extremely exciting about our first three upcoming genre film Blu-ray releases for 2019, featuring the Finnish Backwoods Horror flick, “Kyrsya – Tuftland”, the erotic horror psycho-reality-drama “Lonely Hearts”, and the definitive re-issue of the last of our neo-giallo trilogy, “Odissea della Morte”, featuring lead performances by cult icon Tristan Risk and Momona Komagata (2017’s “Peelers”) as well as a very special appearance by famed cult film actress Lynn Lowry (“Cat People”, “The Crazies”, “Shivers”).

All titles will be available by the end of February, 2019, and we are looking forward to bringing these exciting genre films to you via our new line of Collectors’ Series Blu-ray Editions!
