Death Laid an Egg (LE Slipcase Cult Epics) (Blu-Ray All Region) Preorder

$22.99

DEATH LAID AN EGG is an avant-garde giallo that is more pertinent today than when it was first released in terms of its quite modern depiction of the battle of the sexes and the perils of technology. This Special Edition includes the Director’s Cut, alongside the alternate International giallo “Plucked” version, both in fully restored 2K HD transfers, with completely new bonus features and limited edition slipcase printed with fluorescent inks to emulate the original theatrical poster.

Description
