O’Connor.  Scream Factory will present the film in a two blu-ray set that will present both the the­atri­cal cut of the film and a new trans­fer of the director’s cut plus plen­ty of extras.  Read on for all the malef­i­cent mag­i­cal details, includ­ing a run­down of the spe­cial fea­tures…

LordOI-bluIn the world where mag­ic is real, death is the ulti­mate illu­sion.  From best-sell­ing author and cel­e­brat­ed direc­tor Clive Barker comes a super­nat­u­ral thriller that rips apart the bound­aries between san­i­ty and mad­ness, and between the art of illu­sion and the ter­ri­fy­ing forces of mag­ic. Written and direct­ed by Clive Barker (Nightbreed) and based on his pop­u­lar short sto­ry, The Last Illusion (from Books of Blood Vol. 6), the 1995 cult film clas­sic LORD OF ILLUSIONS stars Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap), Kevin J. O’Connor (The Mummy), Famke Janssen (X-Men, Taken, Hemlock Grove) and Daniel Von Bargen (Crimson Tide, The Faculty).
