Arrow Video is delighted to announce the latest addition to its roster of Brian De Palma movies with the Blu-ray debut of Sisters, arguably the first true Brain De Palma suspense thriller. Following the recent release of The Fury and the truly one-of-a-kind Phantom of the Paradise, Sisters has been treated to an all-new restoration that hopes to bring an all-new interest in one of De Palma's greatest early works.

Complementing this dual-format Blu-ray and DVD edition are a host of brand new extras including interviews with co-writer Louisa Rose, actress Jennifer Salt, editor Paul Hirsch and unit manager Jeffrey Hayes, a film-by-film guide to Brian De Palma's five-decade career by critic Mike Sutton, a visual essay by author Justin Humphreys and an all-new collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by author Kier-La Janisse, Brian De Palma's original 1973 Village Voice essay on working with composer Bernard Herrmann as well as a contemporary interview with De Palma on making Sisters and the 1966 Life magazine article that inspired the film, illustrated with original archive stills.

Before 1973, Brian De Palma was impossible to pigeonhole: he made comedies, political satires and openly experimental pieces. But with Sisters (originally released as Blood Sisters in the UK) he turned to the suspense thriller and discovered his natural home - and a style that would lead directly to later masterpieces like Carrie, Dressed to Kill and Blow Out.

When Danielle (Margot Kidder) meets potential boyfriend Philip (Lisle Wilson) after appearing on the TV show Peeping Toms (a nod to the Michael Powell shocker), she invites him home, only to attract the ire of her twin sister Dominique. From across the courtyard, Rear Window-style, reporter Grace (Jennifer Salt) witnesses Philip being murdered by one of the twins - but the police find no body or any physical evidence. Naturally, Grace takes things into her own hands and discovers more about the sisters' relationship than she bargained for.

Strongly influenced by Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski and with a score by the great Bernard Herrmann (Citizen Kane, Psycho), Sisters was the first true "Brian De Palma" film.
