This should be interesting. I have been hearing about Francis Ford Coppola’s latest experimental film Twixt for quite some time. It was taken on the road and made out to be an interactive film experience, complete with 3D, a mix of color and black and white imagery, and various means to keep the audience very involved with what happens in the film. I am not at all sure how that worked, but at least I will be able to see a “definitive” version of Twixt on Blu-ray this coming July. On July 23, Twixt arrives on Blu-ray and will surely be a trip, as I attempt to watch and evaluate it. Coppola is obviously a legend, as far as filmmakers go, but this later stage of his career has been responsible for some interesting choices on his part. Hopefully Twixt will turn out to be more than just an interesting take on gothic horror filmmaking. Read on to learn more about this upcoming release.

The Film Festival Favorite Starring Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning and Bruce Dern Debuts on Blu-ray and DVD July 23
Written and directed by legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather franchise, Apocalypse Now) as an homage to his lifelong love of the horror genre, the terrifying Gothic horror experience TWIXT arrives on Blu-ray and DVD July 23 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

But as Hall investigates the killing, he finds himself confronted by chilling nightmares, including the ghost of a young girl (Fanning). As he uncovers more horrifying revelations, Hall discovers that the story has more to do with his own life than he could ever have imagined.
