Details on Argento’s ‘Opera’ on Blu-Ray to Open Your Eyes

Little over a week ago, we shared details that the Argento-directed, Opera, and Argento-produced films, The Sect and The Church, would be hitting Blu-Ray by Doppelgänger Releasing and Scorpion Releasing. We finally got some specific details today on the Opera Blu-Ray!

While we had some details back in 2016 about the Opera release, we’re not sure if they are still using the cover art displayed in that post.

Your Alternative Halloween Viewing Guide: Hidden Horror Gems to Make Movie Night Frighteningly Fun
Every Halloween, when you want to check out a horror movie to get your heart racing, or a hilarious scary movie send-up to celebrate the holiday with laughs, everybody seems to cycle back to some of the same old classics.

Check out Et’s suggestions for some of the great lesser-known gems of spooky cinema with this year's alternative Halloween viewing guide:

“New Horror

We are in the midst of a horror film resurgence. A significant group of contemporary horror films made in the past couple of years is reminiscent of the socio-political classics of the 1960s and 1970s in that they are boldly confronting the terrifying undercurrent of life today. Like their predecessors, these films tackle class, gender identity, and race in a way that shows us both where we are and how far we,

Blu-ray Review: The Stendhal Syndrome Limited Edition 2K Restoration

  • DailyDead
It’s hard for horror filmmakers—or filmmakers of any genre, for that matter—to sustain their greatness. Changes in how movies are made, decreasing budgets, even just the passage of time impacts the quality of their output as the years go by, to the point that sometimes the work they’re doing near the end of their respective careers is unidentifiable as their work.

An argument could be made that this is true of Dario Argento, the Italian master of horror who started out making some of the best movies the genre has ever seen and most recently made the 3D Dracula movie with the giant CG mantis. This isn’t to say his latest output is without value—it no doubt has its fans—but it hardly looks like the work of the same man who gave us Suspiria and Deep Red. His 1996 effort, The Stendhal Syndrome, which

Class of 1987: The Eyes Have It – Opera, Dario Argento’s Last Masterpiece

1987 may be the year of the last great Argento movie.

The horror genre has known few voices greater or more influential than Dario Argento, a master craftsman and revolutionary stylist who, from his debut feature The Bird With the Crystal Plumage in 1970 through the late 1980s, is responsible for some of the best horror movies ever made: Deep Red, Suspiria, Tenebrae, Phenomena. In 1987, he wrote and directed what might be his final masterpiece, the giallo-tinged slasher Opera, arguably his most technically accomplished—and bloodiest—film. While more of a standard whodunit than his abstract supernatural efforts, there is such precision to the photography, such expertly staged choreography both in front of and behind the camera, that the movie deserves to be named among his greatest works if only for the dazzling purity of the filmmaking on display.

Opera was my first exposure to Dario Argento, but it wasn't the full

Synapse Films’ September Blu-ray Releases Include Phenomena and The Creep Behind The Camera

Synapse Films made many viewers happy last year with their Collector's Edition Steelbook Blu-ray release of Dario Argento's Phenomena, aka Creepers, and if you didn't pick up the Steelbook, you'll soon have a chance to purchase the film in a standard (but still extraordinary) two-disc Blu-ray this September, along with The Creep Behind the Camera.

Featuring three separate cuts of the film, the Phenomena Blu-ray will be released on September 12th, the same day of Synapse Films' Blu-ray and DVD release of The Creep Behind the Camera, which explores the stranger than fiction story of the making of The Creeping Terror (which is included in the special features with a new 2K scan). Below, we have official press releases with full details, as well as a look at the cover art for both films.

Blu-ray Review – Phenomena: Limited Edition (1985)

Phenomena, 1985.

Directed by Dario Argento.

Starring Jennifer Connelly, Donald Pleasence, Daria Nicolodi, Patrick Bauchau, Fiore Argento, Federica Mastroianni, and Michele Soavi.

Synopsis:

A teenage girl with telepathic abilities moves to a Swiss boarding school and uses her gift to communicate with insects in order to solve a spate of murders.

If something is worth doing then it is worth doing more than once, and so Italian horror maestro Dario Argento begins another movie with a young woman arriving at an exclusive school in a foreign country just as strange events begin to occur. 1977 saw this approach set up Argento’s spooky masterpiece Suspiria and he used it again in 1985 for Phenomena (a.k.a. Creepers in the Us) as actor’s daughter Jennifer (Jennifer ConnellyLabyrinth) arrives at a very expensive Swiss boarding school during a troubled time for the locals as a killer is on the loose.

Giallo Norms and Deviations: Close-up on "Deep Red" and "The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears"

  • MUBI
Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Hélène Cattet & Bruno Forzani's The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears (2013) is showing February 4 - March 6 and Dario Argento's Deep Red (1975) is showing February 5 - March 7, 2017 in the United Kingdom in the double feature Giallo/Meta Giallo.“I know it when I see it.” Like film noir, the giallo is one of those genres as easy to pin down as it is difficult to define. More often than not, what constitutes a giallo rests on a given film’s balance of emblematic imagery and an archetypal storyline, while other factors like tone, score, and setting will also play a part in its classification. Arguably no filmmaker has had a more stylish and deftly rigorous hand in establishing these defining traits than Dario Argento. And his 1975 film, Deep Red (Profondo Rosso), is perhaps as good as it gets,

Drive-In Dust Offs: Phenomena (1985)

If you are new to the works of Italian horror maestro Dario Argento, Phenomena (1985) is as good a place as any to start. It practically plays like a ‘greatest hits’ of all his virtues, and more than a few of his vices. And for the Argento veteran, it’s a gas for those very same reasons – by combining so many elements from his other films he’s created his most bizarre feature to date – no mean feat. When I need five alarm Dario, I throw on Phenomena.

Released in his homeland in January, Phenomena was picked up by New Line Cinema, chopped all to hell (27 minutes cut!), and released stateside in August under the new title Creepers. Did it do well? Of course not. Argento has always been a cult artist in North America; revered by the horror press and some fans at the time, the Cult of Dario has

Heather’s Favorites of 2016

  • DailyDead
This has easily been the hardest time I’ve ever had whittling down my favorite genre offerings for the year. I was fortunate to watch so many great movies throughout the course of the last 12 months (over 150—new and old!), and considering the quality of projects from both the studio and independent sides of the business was exceedingly high, I probably could have featured 20 films on this list, and still would have at least a dozen more I could recommend to fellow fans. 2016 was definitely one of the best recent years in horror and that’s pretty rad.

Beyond the realm of movies, horror also had a strong showing on TV, as it seems almost every single network these days has something of interest if you’re looking to immerse yourself in horror on the small screen. I was also fortunate enough to attend several amazing genre events in 2016, making

Review: Dario Argento's "Tenebrae" (1982);Blu-ray Special Edition From Synapse Films

  • CinemaRetro
By Todd Garbarini

It’s a scary thought, indeed, to think that it has been twenty-nine years since I first saw Dario Argento’s fifth giallo feature film which I had read about two years earlier in the pages of a back issue of Fangoria Magazine. The word giallo is the Italian word for the color yellow, and has found new life in describing a subgenre of the Italian horror film that refers to a who-done-it involving a killer who conceals their identity by wearing a large coat, a wide-brimmed hat, unisex footwear and gloves, their face always obscured or hidden completely. Very often we see the killer only in synecdoche. These stories all originated in the form of pulp novellas which sported yellow covers, hence the use of the term giallo.

Whereas the word giallo is always spelled one way, the correct spelling of the film’s title, Tenebrae,

Swinton also headlined Guadagnino’s “I Am Love,” making this her third consecutive collaboration with the Italian filmmaker. The original “Suspiria” was, of course, also helmed by an Italian: giallo master Dario Argento, whose other well-known works include “Deep Red,” “Inferno” and “Tenebre,” among many others. Latin for “sighs,” “Suspiria” follows an American ballerina at a prestigious dance academy in Germany who comes to learn that there’s more going on at her new school than pirouettes.
