  BFI Blu-ray release on 11 July 2022 and on iTunes and Amazon Prime on 25 July 2022

An evil and enigmatic power throws a family into turmoil in Lindsey Vickers' much sought-after cult horror. An unsettling journey into the world of the supernatural guaranteed to give you sleepless nights, the long-lost chiller THE APPOINTMENT is at last available on Blu-ray from BFI Flipside, sourced from the best materials yet discovered.

Among the usual raft of fantastic extras is a new audio commentary by the director and newly filmed interviews including with Lindsey Vickers and actor Jane Merrow. Other extras include an interview with assistant director Gregory Dark, Lindsey Vickers' 1978 film The Lake (including newly recorded audio commentary) and extensive galleries featuring rare production material.

When suburban father Ian (Edward Woodward, The Wicker Man) is unable to attend his daughter's violin recital, he and his wife Dianna (Jane Merrow, The Lion in Winter) are troubled by prophetic nightmares that seem to foresee a looming tragedy. Are dark forces about to be unleashed upon their comfortable life?
