Cronenberg's controversial JG Ballard adaptation slams onto UK 4K Digital this November.

David Cronenberg's adaptation of JG Ballard's novel Crash caused quite the stir on its release back in 1996, winning plaudits and awards while drawing the ire of tabloids like The Daily Mail, which called for the film to be banned. Crash stars James Spader as an ad exec who finds himself drawn into an underworld of car crash fetishists following his own vehicular accident.

Courtesy of Arrow Video, a new 4K restoration of Crash was originally meant to be released in UK cinemas on November 6th. With UK cinemas now closed, the restoration will now premiere on 4K Digital on November 30th, followed by a 4K UHD Blu-Ray release on December 14th.

Check out Arrow Video's new trailer and poster below.


The official synopsis reads:

James Ballard is an advertising executive whose deviant sexual desires are awakened by a near fatal automobile accident with Dr Helen Remington. Soon the pair, alongside Ballard’s wife Catherine, are drawn into an underground world of car crash fetishism presided over by renegade scientist Vaughan. Danger, sex and death become entwined as eroticism and technology join together in a disturbing, deadly union.
