The Weird Tale Collection 
 Volume 1
THE YELLOW SIGN  
and others

The first volume in The Weird Tale Collection contains some excellent adaptations of horror author Robert W. Chambers' work including Aaron Vanek's award winning short feature film inspired by the short story "The Yellow Sign" in the book The King in Yellow.

In the movie, a young art gallery owner, Tess Reardon (played by Little Giants star Shawna Waldron), is looking for new talent to spark life into her failing business. Haunted by nightmares, she discovers that an artist she dreamt about, Aubrey Scott, actually exists, and she seeks him out. The eccentric painter agrees to a showing of his art, but only if Tess will model for his new work. She grudgingly agrees and begins to regress into a past life from a parallel world, and that everything is not at all as it seems.

A fine gothic thriller... reminiscent of "The Twilight Zone"... [Uses] the same technique that The Blair Witch Project employed; only The Yellow Sign accomplishes it much better.
A creepy exercise in existentialist fantasy... carries a weight that most feature films envy. Thoughtful and unsettling... The Yellow Sign is all the more impressive for its humble origins, demonstrating that deep pockets matter far less than the talents involved.

The volume also includes David Leroy's stunning Tupilak (transferred from a 35mm print), and Emiliano Guarneri & David Fragale's mysterious Italian short, The King in Yellow. Bonus materials include a short documentary called Chambers in Paris, by Chambers' expert, Christophe Thill, plus production stills, outtakes, deleted scenes, audio commentary, and much more. Subtitles in French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Finnish, and Portuguese.

Note:The original pressing of this DVD has the films The Yellow Sign and The King in Yellow presented in 16x9 when they are 4x3 with a hard letter box. Although the films are watchable if you adjust the display with your remote this was not our intent.

Existing customers can request an updated disc by mailing us the original. You can tell if you have the original disc if the DVD does not have WIDESCREEN EDITION printed on the disc.
