The Man with X-Ray Eyes on Limited Edition Blu-ray in April

10 February 2020

In April, get ready for a visual treat as Second Sight announces the first ever UK Blu-ray release of Roger Corman’s seminal horror-science-fiction classic The Man With The X-Ray Eyes.

This 1960s cult favourite will be a sight to behold with a newly restored Limited Edition Box Set release, featuring brand new special features including Roger Corman (The Fall of the House of Usher), commentaries and more. The set arrives on 20 April complete with new artwork, designed by Graham Humphreys, a reversible poster and a soft cover book with writing by Jon Towlson and Allan Bryce.

Obsessed with expanding the powers of human sight, renowned scientist Dr James Xavier (Ray Milland – Dial M For Murder), aims to develop a formula that will allow the user to see beyond the visible spectrum. Despite warnings from his friend Dr. Brandt (Harold J. Stone – Spartacus) and business associate Diane Fairfax (Diana Van Der Vlis – The Swimmer), he experiments on himself and finally perfects a serum that gives him the power to see through solid objects. But his ambitions turn to obsession. No longer able to control the effects, his vision extends beyond the realms of human comprehension until he finally sees more than he can bear.
