Synapse to Release Two Dario Argento Films

Posted January 28, 2013 05:26 PM by Webmaster

Synapse FilmsIndependent distributors Synapse Films have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray two cult films directed by Italian director Dario Argento: Tenebrae (1982), starring Anthony Franciosa, Giuliano Gemma and Christian Borromeo, and Phenomena (1985), starring Jennifer Connelly, Donald Pleasence and Daria Nicolodi. Both are expected to appear on the market later in 2013.

Note: Synapse Films also revealed earlier this year that they are bringing to Blu-ray Lamberto Bava's Demons and Demons 2. See Blu-ray.com's announcement here.

Phenomena

Jennifer Corvino (Jennifer Connelly) is the new girl at school, taunted by her classmates and unnerved both by her stern headmistress and the fact that a series of murders has recently taken place. However, when Jennifer discovers that she has special powers, the local professor (Donald Pleasence) helps her use them to discover the identity of the killer.

Tenebrae

King of Grand-Guignol bloodbaths Dario Argento directs this notorious horror flick from 1982. Peter Neil (Anthony Franciosa) is a mystery writer in Rome to promote his new novel. His stay is disturbed by a crazed maniac who begins a terrifying murder spree, stuffing his victims' mouths with pages from Neils' books...

Excited for both these films....hopefully they keep the original artwork, even if it's a reversible sleeve like Scream Factory do with their titles!!!

Wow, Synapse is coming strong with the Italian flicks this year. Hope this is a sign of things to come!

Im happy with all my region free arrow releases of the dario argenio films, since the bonus pal dvd's play in my xbox 360

All over Phenomena, for sure.

You go Synapse! Keep filling the Blue Underground void and bring on more Italian horror! What we really need is Opera. That's the ONLY classic Argento film that has yet to hit blu-ray in any region. But anyways, if this Phenomena release boasts a better transfer than arrow's, I will pick it up for sure.

Of course the world is still waiting on a Suspiria release that hasn't had it's color palette raped by a unicorn as well....

I just got the Arrow releases of these. I might double dip just to support Synapse's push to bring more of these to bluray. And yes, Suspiria please, though we probably won't get that until Green's remake gets finished and released.

I will definitely be upgrading from my Anchor Bay clam-shell VHS editions! Great news!

Nice! I've had the DVDs for awhile, will upgrade for sure. Maybe they can include both cuts of Phenomena for comparison sake.

I still own the Limited Edition Dario Argento 2-pack sets that came out years ago from Anchor Bay. Wouldn't mind buying, but it'd be based on how many more extras will be added. Same with the Demons movies (which I happen to LOVE!)

Arrow's releases of these titles were of very poor quality video wise, hoping that Synapse now will set things straight. They do have a good track record of releasing vintage horror titles with minimal digial tinkering.

Yea, where the hell is 'Suspiria'??? It's ridiculous that Blu-ray has been around for almost 7 years now and this has STILL not come to the US.

Dannalexcon: I would say that Arrow's release of PHENOMENA is pretty damn good. TENEBRAE on the other hand? Yech! I would get the French Wild Side release instead.

I'm sure Don's Tenebrae will wipe the floor with the Arrow noisy mess of a release. They should have recalled it. Truly terrible quality. So, great news!

I just bought the Arrow releases of these Argento films. I was impressed with the picture on Phenomena.
However the Tenebrae release just looks so strange. I was able to enjoy the film but I will seriously double dip for that one but probably not Phenomena.

I am looking forward to Demons too. I almost bought the Arrow release of that as well.

I have the Australian blu ray of Suspiria. Its pretty good but not mind blowing. Its not region free but go to your local Sears and pick up a Seiki for $50 to get a region free player.

Tenebrae will be mine; my second favorite Argento movie after Deep Red.
