Full-length download exclusive to Amazon.com

The 1985 cult classic "Kiss of the Spider Woman," from City Lights Home Entertainment, is available now for the first time since its theatrical release as a full-length download exclusively on Amazon.com's Unbox.

Consumers will be able to rent the film for $2.99 for 30 days or buy it outright for $9.99. The film also will be available on standard DVD and Blu-ray Disc, again exclusively on Amazon.com, beginning July 22. The DVD lists for $25.99 and the Blu-ray Disc, $27.95.

"Amazon customers have asked for 'Kiss of the Spider Woman' for many years," said Peter Farici, vp of movies and music at Amazon. "By making it available in so many mediums on Amazon.com, independent film fans can discover a classic that has not been seen in theaters for more than 23 years and has not been available on video for more than 15 years.

"The wonderful thing about producing in the new-media landscape is that we are able to bring classic films directly and instantly to customers' living rooms via Amazon Unbox, DVD or Blu-ray."

Sal Scamardo, president of City Lights Home Entertainment, says "'Kiss of the Spider Woman' changed the industry against all odds and symbolizes the pure spirit of independent filmmaking."

"As an emerging major independent film and video studio, we're excited to preserve and promote that spirit and satisfy consumer demand across multiple home-entertainment platforms," he said.
