BFI To Release 80’s Horror Film The Appointment Blu-ray July 2022

Another of the BFI July film releases coming to blu-ray is horror, The Appointment (1982) from writer/director Lindsey C. Vickers.

The film stars Edward Woodward, Jane Merrow and Samantha Weysom.

The Appointment Blu-ray – BFI

The Appointment Blu-ray "Horror"

Bizarrely the BFI are claiming this new release to be “Presented on Blu-ray in Standard Definition”. Why release it on blu-ray in standard definition? Where is the high definition version?

I don’t think the BFI should be releasing this on blu-ray if it isn’t a 1080p resolution release.

The BFI has released a clip of The Appointment on YouTube in 1080p so you can make up your own minds. I’ve added it at the bottom of the page.
