The acclaimed Giallo film is coming to 4K Ultra HD in July.
Everyone’s had one of those days where they look through their extensive Blu-ray collection in search of the perfect Giallo film to watch. Preferably one that was released in the era of the video nasties, only to be disappointed due to a lack of options. Let’s face it, you can only watch Zombie (1979) so many times. Fear not my friends, your physical horror selection is about to grow. Arrow Video and Synapse Films and coming together to release master of Italian horror, Dario Argento’s Tenebrae (1982) in 4K Ultra HD. The good news doesn’t end there. Along with the release of the film comes a cavalcade of exclusive special features and memorabilia.
Fans of the Giallo maestro are sure to be salivating at the mouth to get their hands on the limited release in July to pay tribute to the film’s 40th Anniversary of its 1982 release. In partnership with Synapse Films in the US and Arrow Video in the UK, the three-disc 4K UHD/Blu-ray 6,000 piece Limited Edition boxed set is available for pre-order. There’s also an alternate 2,000 piece “variant” cover version of the set that will only be available from Synapse Films and Diabolik DVD. The all-new 4K restoration includes hours of extras and, for the first time ever, the alternate U.S. theatrical cut, Unsane.
This isn’t the first Argento film to get a prestigious high-definition release. His infamous films throughout the 70s and 80s have obtained Blu-ray releases, primarily through Synapse Films and Arrow Video, respectively. In March, Phenomena had its own 4K UHD 6000 Piece Limited Edition release distributed by Synapse.
Argento has had quite the auspicious career. He’s famous for being one of the pioneers of the Italian Giallo horror subgenre. His film is Suspiria (1977) which was reimagined in 2018 is perhaps his most well-known film. If you hope to screen Tenebrae before the anniversary release, the film is currently streaming on Shudder.
Tenebrae comes to 4K UHD Blu-ray on July 26, 2022.
