Anchor Bay has announced that they are releasing 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s The Star Chamber onto Blu-ray this May. The film was directed by Peter Hyams and starred Michael Douglas, Hal Holbrook, Yaphet Kotto, Sharon Gless, and Don Calfa. The Star Chamber will be available online and in stores beginning May 28th.
In the film, disgusted with criminals escaping the judicial system via technicalities (most recently two men accused of raping and murdering a young boy), an idealistic young Superior Court judge named Steven Hardin (Douglas) investigates an alternative method for punishing the guilty. Soon Hardin approaches another judge (Holbrook), who tells him about a group of rogue judges who operate outside of the law and exact vigilante justice.
The Star Chamber was released in August of 1983 and grossed over $5 million in worldwide box office.
Anchor Bay has not released any information concerning technical specifications and special features yet.
