Official Release


DARIO ARGENTO’S GIALLO MASTERPIECE FINALLY COMES TO U.S. BLU-RAY ON FEBRUARY 23rd FROM SYNAPSE FILMS


A 3-DISC (BLU-RAY, DVD & CD) LIMITED STEELBOOK™ EDITION OF DARIO ARGENTO’S HORROR CLASSIC! ONLY 3000 UNITS PRODUCED!

Italian terror master Dario Argento elevates the Giallo genre to new heights with 1982’s TENEBRAE, a darkly humorous, futuristic and notoriously grisly horror film many consider to be one of his finest works.

American mystery author Peter Neal (Anthony Franciosa) comes to Italy to promote his newest novel, TENEBRAE. Unfortunately, a razor-wielding serial killer is on the loose, taunting Neal and murdering those around him in gruesome fashion just like the character in his novel. As the mystery surrounding the killings spirals out of control, Neal investigates the crimes on his own, leading to a mind-bending, genre-twisting conclusion that will leave you breathless!

This all-new 1080p high-definition release of TENEBRAE is presented here, for the FIRST TIME EVER, with rare English insert shots never-before-seen on any optical disc release! Starring John Saxon (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET), Daria Nicolodi (Dario Argento’s PHENOMENA) and John Steiner (CALIGULA), this slasher-horror classic also features an amazing music score from Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli and Massimo Morante (formerly of Italian progressive-rock band, Goblin).

RAZOR-SHARP SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE:

  • All-new Synapse Films supervised color correction and restoration of a 1080p scan from original uncut negative elements, presented in the original aspect ratio of 1.85:1
  • Dual English and Italian language options with newly-translated English subtitle tracks for both
  • Audio commentary track featuring film critic and Argento scholar, Maitland McDonagh
  • Original international trailer
  • Booklet containing liner notes by Derek Botelho, author of THE ARGENTO SYNDROME, with additional technical notes by Vincent Pereira and Don May, Jr.
  • Chapter Selections
  • Collectible Steelbook™ Packaging by Silver Ferox Design
SPECIAL FEATURES EXCLUSIVE TO THE BLU-RAY DISC INCLUDE:
  • Rare high-definition 1080p English sequence insert shots, playable within the film via seamless branching
  • Feature-length in-depth documentary, YELLOW FEVER: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE GIALLO by High Rising Productions, chronicling the giallo film genre from its beginnings as early 20th century crime fiction, to its later influences on the modern slasher film genre. Featuring interviews with Dario Argento, Umberto Lenzi, Luigi Cozzi, Lamberto Bava, Richard Stanley, and more!
  • Original UNSANE (U.S. version of TENEBRAE) end credits sequence
  • Alternate opening credits sequence
  • Japanese SHADOW theatrical trailer

INCLUDES A BONUS COMPACT DISC (19 Tracks) featuring an all-new 2015 remaster of the TENEBRAE motion picture soundtrack, containing additional tracks not included on the original 1982 album.

Here is the message:
Due to delays caused by our replicators, Synapse Films may be unable to start shipping the TENEBRAE Steelbook on our original proposed release date of February 23rd. It is unfortunate, but no fault of Synapse Films. Our replicator/assembler has had the Steelbook cases since before the New Year, the physical discs for two weeks, and all the final paper was delivered a week ago Tuesday. As far as we know at this point in time, they have not
begun assembling the discs for us, nor have they given us a definitive drop shipment date when they will arrive to our offices, even though they were aware of our February 23rd release date.

We certainly hope to receive the discs as originally scheduled, and we hope our replicator is making the effort to make this happen. If the discs do not arrive on the 23rd, we will begin shipping them AS SOON as they come in and are inventoried. It could be just a day or two, or as much as a week, later than expected.

Synapse Films thanks you for your support and patience in this matter, and we apologize for any inconvenience our replicator has caused.

Kindest Regards,

Don May Jr.
President, Synapse Film

Is the HDN exclusive part of their print run? If so, that will be delayed also I presume?
