IT IS A MATTER OF GOOD BREEDING. REALLY. After producing Stuart Gordon's hit Re-Animator, Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead III) turned his hand to directing with 1989's Society, and gave birth to one of the ickiest, most original body horror shockers of all time. Teenager Bill Whitney (Billy Warlock) has always felt like the odd one out in his wealthy, upper-class Beverly Hills family. For some reason, he just doesn't seem to fit in. But his sense of alienation takes a sinister turn when he hears an audio recording of his sister's coming-out party, which seems to implicate his family and others in a bizarre, ritualistic orgy. And then there are the strange things he's been seeing - glimpses of people with their bodies contorted impossibly out of shape... Is Bill going mad or is there something seriously amiss in his neighborhood? Packing stomach-churning grue and thought-provoking social commentary in equal measure, Society is a biting horror satire which culminates in one of the most gag-inducing "climaxes"' in all of horror history.

For those who've been eagerly anticipating a Blu-Ray release of this film for years, Arrow Films has made it worth the wait by delivering an exceptional package.
Society easily leaps on the short list of best catalog transfers available on the Blu-ray format and is a true delight for videophiles. One of Arrow Video's first dual releases in both the UK and the USA, this is a superb presentation that demands a purch
If you like dark films form 80's with a twisted sense of humor and some nice gore this is for you.
Arrow Video's Society is a showstopper! This is a disc to own, well worth the price.
A sick, smart movie, it wickedly contorts the tropes of teenage awkwardness and paranoia into a dark and comedic suburban fable
