• Criterion teases “ERASERHEAD,” “DEVIL’S BACKBONE”

    by: Samuel Zimmerman on: 2013-01-02 16:13:01

    The Criterion Collection, in their mission to lend proper
    treatment to significant cinema has always embraced genre landmarks and
    oddities; having released an incredible ROSEMARY’S BABY Blu-ray and the
    splendid WHEN HORROR CAME TO SHOCHIKU in recent months, alone. Their
    clue-ridden, 2013 teaser image has gone out and it would seem even more
    fantastic titles are on the way.

    Their newsletter, which often houses drawings such as these,
    meant to titillate and tease what’s on the upcoming slate, hit yesterday and
    while some titles are mere educated guesses (can we be entirely sure the
    gentleman with activity around his brain is SCANNERS, or that the building
    itself references THE TENANT), others feel like no-brainers.

    As you’ll see below, the third window down (second from the
    right) houses a Devil with his, well, backbone highlighted. A Criterion slate
    of Guillermo del Toro’s more intimate films (CRONOS is already available) is a
    hell of a prospect, especially seeing as how his Spanish Civil War-era ghost
    story remains unavailable on U.S. Blu-ray. Meanwhile, scaling the left side of the building is a man
    with a Pink Pearl eraser-head. All signs point to the first(!) film of David
    Lynch’s to be included in the collection; surely, momentous and hopefully
    continuous (here’s hoping for FIRE WALK WITH ME).

    Does anything else in the sketch get you jazzed? You can find
    much more at Criterion.
