Dennis Widmyer & Kevin Kolsch’s STARRY EYES is resting comfortably in most of this year’s Top Ten lists ( all of us at Icons of Fright loved it), and rightfully so, it’s deserving of its accolades. Very few films capture that “how far will you go for what you want?” question so perfectly as Widmyer/Kolsch’s destined to be a classic tale of an actress going through what is the worst audition process possible, and losing her soul in the process. Fright fanatics who missed the film’s limited theatrical/VOD run earlier this year, can now add one more thing to look forward to, as STARRY EYES is set to make its mark on Bluray/DVD on February 3rd, via MPI/Dark Sky Films.

Taking a cue from the smart approach of the gang at Scream Factory and Drafthouse, Dark Sky is giving fans two covers to choose from, the first being a pentagram-eyed Alex Essoe, and the other being the Jay Shaw-created cult poster that should win poster of the year.

“Determined to make it as an actress in Hollywood, Sarah Walker (Alex Essoe, Passion Play, Boy Toy) spends her days working a dead-end job, enduring petty friendships with other struggling artists and competing actors, and going on countless casting calls in hopes of catching her big break. After a series of strange auditions, Sarah lands the leading role in a film from a mysterious production company. But this opportunity comes with some bizarre conditions that will transform her both mentally and physically into something beautiful … and altogether terrifying.”

STARRY EYES stars Alex Essoe, Noah Segan (Looper, Brick), Pat Healy (The Innkeepers, Cheap Thrills, Compliance) and Amanda Fuller (The Brittany Murphy Story, Cheap Thrills).

Special Features on the Blu-ray and DVD include commentary with writer-directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer and producer Travis Stevens; 10 deleted scenes; a music video by the film’s composer, Jonathan Snipes; Alex Essoe’s audition video; a behind-the-scenes photo gallery, and the theatrical trailer.
