Long Out of Print Cult Favorite ‘The Haunting of Julia’ Coming to 4K UHD from Scream Factory

The Haunting of Julia 4K UHD + Blu-ray Combo Pack Collector's Edition from Scream Factory.

“The Haunting of Julia,” a cult favorite supernatural thriller, long out of print and never before available on DVD or Blu-ray in the US, is getting a 4K UHD+Blu-ray combo pack release on April 18, 2023, from Scream Factory.

Based on the novel “Julia” by Peter Straub, “The Haunting of Julia” (aka “Full Circle”) has developed a cult following amongst film fans for its intelligent yet deeply chilling take on a modern ghost story. In it, Magnus and Julia Lofting (Keir Dullea, “Black Christmas” and Mia Farrow, “Rosemary’s Baby”) suffer a tremendous shock one morning when their daughter Kate (Sophie Ward, “The Hunger”) begins choking. Unsure what to do, Julia attempts a tracheotomy, inadvertently causing Kate’s death. The tragedy sends Julia to a hospital to recover, but when Magnus asks that she come home, she prefers to buy a new house in London to live alone. Magnus begins pondering Julia’s fragile sanity, while Julia becomes convinced that the spirit of a little girl haunts her house.

The upcoming release will feature a new 4K restoration from the original negative as well as a bevy of brand-new bonus features, including an Audio Commentary by director Richard Loncraine and film historian Simon Fitzjohn, an interview with actor Tom Conti, an interview with actress Samantha Gates, the featurette Park Life where Simon Fitzjohn revisits the locations from the film, featurette A Haunting Retrospective with film critic/author Kim Newman, and more!
