BFI Flipside to release long-vanished cult chiller ‘FULL CIRCLE – THE HAUNTING OF JULIA’ on BFI 4K Ultra HD & Blu-ray

BFI Flipside will release Richard Loncraine‘s long-vanished and eerily evocative cult chiller, FULL CIRCLE – THE HAUNTING OF JULIA, on BFI 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, iTunes and Amazon Prime on 24 April 2023, presented from a brand new director-approved 4K restoration.

Making its long-overdue return, FULL CIRCLE – THE HAUNTING OF JULIA is based on Peter Straub’s haunting novel Julia and stars Mia Farrow, Keir Dullea and Tom Conti.

This new release will be launched with an event screening at NFT1, BFI Southbank on Wednesday 19 April at 18:10, followed by a Q&A with director Richard Loncraine and film historian Simon Fitzjohn.

Bereaved mother Julia (Mia Farrow) flees her controlling husband Magnus (Keir Dullea), re-establishing herself in an old house in leafy west London and befriending antique dealer Mark (Tom Conti). Yet Julia finds herself troubled by apparitions of a ghostly, blonde-haired child, sending her on a strange journey of self-discovery – with dreadful consequences.
