Crimes of the Future Limited Edition Unboxing

After a disappointing DVD-only release at the beginning of the year, those titans of physical media at Second Sight Films have answered the prayers of Cronenberg worshippers everywhere – with a typically lavish 4K UHD release of Crimes of the Future, the body-horror maestro’s latest banger. Put together with the usual passion and love for not just the film but for physical media as an artform, this is a beautiful release of a haunting film that always deserved so much more than just DVD.

We took a closer look at another of many diamonds in Second Sight’s ever-growing crown.
