Dressed to Kill Gets New Unrated 4k Blu-ray Master

Criterion Releases De Palma Classic Anew in HD

Brian De Palma's thriller classic Dressed to Kill was censored for the "R" rating in the US. Especially the brutal razorblade scene and a revealing shower scene were cut (see comparison). On DVD and Blu-ray, the unrated and uncensored version was released afterwards and now Criterion has prepared a new Blu-ray release that is based on a restored 4k master that was supervised by De Palma himself. The specs of the released that is scheduled for August 18th, 2015, are as follows:

  • New, restored 4K digital transfer of director Brian De Palma’s preferred unrated version, approved by the director, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New interviews with actor Nancy Allen, producer George Litto, composer Pino Donaggio, shower-scene body double Victoria Lynn Johnson, and poster photographic art director Stephen Sayadian
  • New profile of cinematographer Ralf Bode, featuring filmmaker Michael Apted
  • The Making of Dressed to Kill, a 2001 documentary featuring De Palma
  • Interview with actor-director Keith Gordon from 2001
  • Video pieces from 2001 about the different versions of the film and the cuts made to avoid an X rating
  • Gallery of storyboards by De Palma
  • Trailer
  • An essay by critic Michael Koresky
