Vestron Video and Lionsgate Home Entertainment will bring to Blu-ray Francis Ford Coppola's Dementia 13 (1963), starring William Campbell, Luana Anders, Bart Patton, Mary Mitchel, and Patrick Magee. The release will be available for purchase on September 21.

Following his recent director's cuts for Apocalypse Now: The Final Cut and The Cotton Club Encore, Coppola went into his own private collection to restore his directorial debut from 1963.

Over the years, the film was shown on poor quality 16MM prints or transfers from whatever found its way into film collectors hands, but never properly presented as it was intended by the director.

Now fully restored and remastered in Coppola's original vision for the film, this is now the definitive version for fans of this cult classic.

"DEMENTIA 13 obviously occupies a place in my heart as my first film and I'm very proud that it can now exist as I intended it," said Coppola.

Coming to the Vestron Video Collector's Series and presented in 4K for the first time in almost 60 years, Francis Ford Coppola's remastered "Dementia 13: Director's Cut" is quintessential gothic horror, wrapped in the twisted mysteries of a family's deepest, darkest secrets. A widow deceives her late husband's mother and brothers into thinking he's still alive when she attends the yearly memorial to his drowned sister, hoping to secure his inheritance. But her cunning is no match for the demented, axe-wielding thing roaming the grounds of the family's Irish estate in this cult favorite featuring Patrick Magee, Luana Anders, William Campbell, and Bart Patton.

Introduction by Francis Ford Coppola
