The Tenant (1976) Blu-ray: Study in psychological paranoia

Shout Factory has announced the upcoming release of Director Roman Polanski’s brilliant study in alienation and paranoia, The Tenant (1976) on Blu-ray.

An apartment with an unhappy past sets the stage for filmmaker Roman Polanski’s riveting psychological suspense thriller, The Tenant. Polanski stars as Trelkovsky, a quiet, timid file clerk increasingly overshadowed with dread and fear after he moves into his new apartment. Adding to his paranoia are the building’s other occupants, who do nothing to alleviate his growing obsession with the untimely, tragic fate of the apartment’s previous tenant. Is Trelkovsky’s dread truly justified – or is it simply the result of his seemingly disintegrating mental state?

A brilliant international cast – Isabelle Adjani, Melvyn Douglas, Jo Van Fleet, Bernard Fresson and Shelley Winters – and Polanski’s own penchant for delivering unprecedented suspense (Repulsion, Rosemary’s Baby, Chinatown) make The Tenant a haunting, riveting film classic!
