Walerian Borowczyk's hardest-to-see THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MISS OSBOURNE (aka THE BLOOD OR DR. JEKYLL or DR. JEKYLL AND HIS WOMEN) hits Blu-ray and DVD simultaneously in the US and UK courtesy of Arrow Video.  Udo Kier plays Dr. Jekyll who discovers a drug that allows him to tap into his darker, bestial side in the form of Mr. Hyde.  When his theories are challenged and ridiculed, he decides to unleash Mr. Hyde upon the guests at his engagement party including his lovely bride-to-be Fanny (Marina Pierro).  Howard Vernon and Patrick Magee also star.
