On April 27, 2021, Severin Films will be releasing Santa Sangre (1989) on a 4K UHD, 4-Disc Digipack Blu-ray.

It has been hailed as “extraordinary” (The Guardian), “visionary and haunting” (Rolling Stone), and “a grand work of art, full of symbols and imagery that reach beyond language to something primal and original” (AV Club). Now forget everything you have ever seen as the modern masterpiece from director Alejandro Jodorowsky returns like never before, with 8+ hours of archival & all-new Special Features. Severin Films is proud to present this 4-Disc Deluxe Edition of Jodorowsky’s epic odyssey through ecstasy and anguish, belief and blasphemy, beauty and madness – and the surreal genius behind it all – now featuring a 4K scan from the original negative supervised by the director himself.

Whether or not this is the most accessible of Jodorowsky’s films… it is certainly the most accessible “Jodorowksy film,” a vision filled with circus imagery, surreal scenes, grotesque violence and psycho-sexual trauma.
