Lionsgate’s Vestron Video line has continued to bring the best classics back to our homes and one very important film that has been missing is Ken Russell’s GOTHIC. Thankfully the wait is almost over as GOTHIC is coming our way this January! Read on for the details…

From the Vestron Video Collector’s Series, the horror classic Gothic will arrive for the first time on limited edition Blu-ray™ on January 30 from Lionsgate. Starring Golden Globe® winner Gabriel Byrne (2009, Best Actor, “In Treatment”), Julian Sands, and Natasha Richardson, and from legendary director Ken Russell (Lair of the White Worm), Gothic is the fictional retelling of the night Mary Shelley developed the story of Frankenstein.
