Severin Films are releasing SHOCK TREATMENT on DVD, Blu-ray and a 2-Disc Limited Edition Blu-ray with a Exclusive slipcover on 27th October.
French film legends Alain Delon (PURPLE NOON, LE SAMOURAÏ) and Annie Girardot (ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS, THE PIANO TEACHER) star in the 1972 thriller from writer/director Alain Jessua (ARMAGUEDON, THE DOGS) that became a cause célèbre of international cinema: When a career woman (Girardot) checks into the exclusive seaside clinic of a doctor (Delon) famed for his unorthodox rejuvenation treatments, she’ll discover a nightmare of bourgeois depravities, medical atrocities and the eye-popping full-frontal nudity that sparked worldwide headlines. Robert Hirsch (HIVER 54, L’ABBÉ PIERRE), Michel Duchaussoy (MESRINE) and Jeanne Colletin (EMMANUELLE) co-star in this “political allegory fashioned as a horror story”(Time Out) – released in the UK as DOCTOR IN THE NUDE – now scanned uncut in 2k from the original interpositive.
