Nightmare Alley (2021) Blu-ray Steelbook Unboxing

Perhaps one of the most unlikely films to find itself in this year’s Best Picture competition at the Academy Awards is Nightmare Alley, a dark and disturbing noir thriller that seemed to sneak in and out of cinemas with little fanfare despite an all-star cast and legendary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro at the helm. 

Now available at home, this uniquely spellbinding journey into the carnival world has been treated to a gorgeous Blu-ray Steelbook release by Disney, available exclusively at Zavvi.

While this release sadly does not include Nightmare Alley: Vision in Darkness and Night (the black-and-white version of the film that also saw a brief theatrical release), the regular version of the film is still one that benefits hugely from Blu-ray – the film is packed with del Toro’s usual visual flair that transports viewers directly into its frightening world.

We took a closer look at this beautiful release…


From visionary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes this noir-style psychological thriller starring Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett. When a manipulative carnival man (Cooper) teams with an equally deceptive psychiatrist (Blanchett) to grift the wealthy in 1940s New York society, he learns that his new partner in crime might be his most formidable opponent yet. Nightmare Alley is directed by del Toro, who co-wrote the film with Kim Morgan, based on William Lindsay Gresham’s novel.

Bonus Features

  • Del Toro’s Neo-Noir (11 mins)
  • Beneath The Tarp (8 mins)
  • What Exists In The Fringe (5 mins)

NIGHTMARE ALLEY is available now on Digital, DVD, Blu-ray, and Zavvi Exclusive Blu-ray Steelbook
