STIGMATA Starring Academy Award Winner Patricia Arquette Debuts On Blu-ray May 19th!

StigmataMore 90s horror from Scream Factory.  Here’s another more recent cult classic, the Patricia Arquette-starring Stigmata.  I remember this one being pretty popular amongst us “alternative” kids back in the day for some reason.  While I never owned it, I do remember renting it a few times VHS.  It’ll be interesting to revisit the film as I was always sort of indifferent on it and I’m currently having trouble recalling much.  Anyway, who better to house it than Scream Factory.  Today, they provide us with the details of their release.  There isn’t one currently from Amazon, but I’m sure a pre-order link will be up soon.  So, scroll on down to find out more on Stigmata‘s Blu-ray debut.  Enjoy!

Frankie Paige (Arquette) has absolutely no faith in God. All of that changes when she suddenly begins to suffer the stigmata — the living wounds of the crucified Christ. Frankie’s miraculous bleeding comes to the attention of the Vatican’s top investigator, Father Kiernan (Byrne). But when Cardinal Houseman (Jonathan Pryce, Brazil, Ronin), discovers that Frankie is actually channeling an extraordinary and provocative message that could destroy the Church, he’s convinced that she —  and the force possessing her —  must be forever silenced. Determined to stop this deadly conspiracy, Kiernan risks his faith and his life to save her and the message that will change the destiny of mankind forever. Also starring Portia de Rossi (TV’s Arrested Development), Nia Long (Big Momma’s House) and Rade Sherbedgia (Taken 2, X-Men: First Class), Stigmata is a riveting supernatural thriller that’ll leave you breathless.

    I used to own it on DVD, but it has been gone ever since I sold all my DVDs.
