The last time Francis Ford Coppola delved into horror it was with "Bram Stoker's Dracula," a lush and visually ambitious take on the legend. That was over twenty years ago but the filmmaker has recently returned to the genre with "Twixt" and we'd bet that, given it's very limited theatrical showings, you haven't seen it yet. Well, we've got a few copies of the movie on Blu-ray to help you fill that cinematic gap.

After a long, long absence from filmmaking, legendary "The Godfather" helmer Francis Ford Coppola resurfaced a few years back with some of his most impressive works since the early 1980s. We didn't wholeheartedly adore either "Youth Without Youth" or "Tetro," but there was still much to admire, and furthermore, they felt like Coppola had returned to filmmaking with the vigor and energy of a young man, suggesting much more to come.

Francis Ford Coppola has played quite a few roles in his five-decade-long career. He started as a low-budget filmmaker in skin flicks and Roger Corman films before becoming an icon with a hugely impressive run of films that started with "The Godfather" and, arguably, ended with "Apocalypse Now." The director struggled throughout the '80s and '90s, first attempting to bankroll his expensive projects through his American Zoetrope label, then as a director for hire in Hollywood after a run of flops nearly bankrupted him. But instead of continuing to struggle within the studio system he instead opted to go independent again.

So, will Francis Ford Coppola's remix-ready gothic horror pic "Twixt" be a game changer or simply another B-movie with above average talent? Judging by the first trailer for the film -- which is the same footage they showed at Comic-Con just over a week ago -- it looks like it's somewhere in between.

So who would've thought that at Comic-Con over the weekend, the most groundbreaking presentation would come from 72 year-old filmmaking legend Francis Ford Coppola? Indeed, the director showed the young whippersnappers how it's done with a presentation of his forthcoming gothic horror pic "Twixt" that included 3D Edgar Allan Poe masks and a screening of footage that Coppola remixed live all from his iPad. Not bad. We've already seen a few pics from the film, suggesting a surreal, atmospheric vibe, but if these promo posters are anything to go by, Coppola won't be holding back on the red stuff either.
