Synapse Films Restores ‘The Kindred’, Bringing Unrated Limited Edition Steelbook to Blu-ray!

Synapse Films has a gem on its hands with The Kindred, a 1980s classic that’s making its worldwide Blu-ray debut with a stellar new 4K restoration of the complete, unrated version of the film, accompanied by plenty of extras.

The 1987 classic that boasts insane practical special effects will receive its worldwide Blu-ray debut in a 3-disc (1080p Blu-ray/DVD/CD) Steelbook set for release on December 14, 2021. The extremely hyped release is limited to only 3500 pieces.

Academy Award-winning screen legends Rod Steiger (In the Heat of the Night, Duck, You Sucker) and Kim Hunter (A Streetcar Named Desire, Planet of the Apes)
star in The Kindred, a chilling tale of a genetic experiment gone wrong… very wrong!

In the film…

“Kim Hunter is Dr. Amanda Hollins, a molecular scientist who calls on her son John (David Allen Brooks) to eliminate all evidence of her genetic experiments… most specifically her “Anthony Journals.” Dr. Philip Lloyd (Steiger), an acquaintance of Hollins who is familiar with her experiments, wants to continue her studies no matter the cost! John heads to his isolated childhood home with a group of friends to uncover his mother’s research and destroy it all. There’s something else in the house, however… something watching and waiting… a tentacled creature born from the desire to alter human evolution. It’s evil. It’s mad. It’s ready to kill!”

The Kindred also stars Amanda Pays (TV’s “The Flash”, Leviathan) and Talia Balsam (“Mad Men”, “Homeland”).

SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE:

  • New 4K restoration of the unrated version of the
    film
  • New 5.1 stereo surround sound remix (Original 2.0 mono theatrical mix also included)
  • Audio commentary with directors Jeffrey Obrow and Stephen Carpenter, moderated by horror journalist Steve Barton
  • Inhuman Experiments – The Making of The Kindred, an all-new documentary produced by Red Shirt Pictures (52 mins.)
  • A special compilation of creature effects artist Michael McCracken, Jr.’s never-before-seen on-set footage
  • Still gallery and original storyboards
  • Original theatrical trailer, original video promotional trailer and TV spots
  • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Liner notes booklet featuring writing by film scholar and horror expert Michael Gingold
  • CD soundtrack of the original film score by David Newman
  • Limited edition slipcover/o-card sleeve designed by Wes Benscoter, with additional Steelbook artwork by Alexandros Pyromallis

The 3500-unit The Kindred Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Steelbook is available exclusively through the Synapse Films website. The retail price is $49.95 ($43.95, plus $6.00 packing/handling fee) with a street date of December 14, 2021.
