    Alan Jones tweeted that he was going to record a commentary for this with Kim Newman. I can't wait!

    8/22/16.

    Format: Blu-Ray + DVD
    Directed by: Duccio Tessari
    Starring: Helmut Berger, Giancarlo Sbragia, Evelyn Stewart

    Synopsis:

    Directed by Duccio Tessari (Death Occurred Last Night, A Pistol for Ringo), The Bloodstained Butterflymelds the lurid giallo traditions popularised by Dario Argento and Mario Bava with courtroom drama, resulting in a film that is as concerned with forensic detail and legal process as it is with grisly murders and audacious set-pieces.

    When a young female student is savagely killed in a park during a thunderstorm, the culprit seems obvious: her lover, TV sports personality Alessandro Marchi (Giancarlo Sbragia, Death Rage), seen fleeing the scene of the crime by numerous eyewitnesses. The evidence against him is damning… but is it all too convenient? And when the killer strikes again while Marchi is in custody, it quickly becomes apparent that there’s more to the case than meets the eye…

    Starring 70s heartthrob Helmut Berger (Dorian Gray, The Godfather: Part III) alongside genre mainstays Evelyn Stewart (The Psychic, The Case of the Scorpion’s Tail) and Carole André (Colt 38 Special Squad), and featuring a score by Gianni Ferrio (Death Walks at Midnight), The Bloodstained Butterfly is presented uncut and in a sumptuous new 4K restoration that allows this unique and haunting thriller to shine like never before!

    Don't care for that new artwork at all but I can't wait for this one. While I'd rate DEATH OCCURED LAST NIGHT slightly higher, this is still another terrific giallo from Tessari. I love the way this film is structured, with flashbacks and not coming all together until the end. Looking forward to that career retrospective, damn I wish we'd get the RINGO films on BD, particularly THE RETURN OF RINGO.

    Also that text was translated from German to English through FB so it's pretty mangled.

    Oh my, two of the best companies releasing the same great film (probably) at or around the same time. The sad part is I'll probably go with the CO despite it being pricier, just because it's CO.
    Looking for Orozco the Embalmer (Camera Obscura) and the Swedish theatrical poster of Breaking Point (Vibenius/"Ron Silberman Jr.", 1975).

    Im reading that the actual master will be exactly the same. So it seems the only reason to buy the CO would be for the German language options (good for Germans I suppose) and (maybe?) the extras if they are different? Or maybe they will be the same on both releases.

    Or if you have a thing for annoyingly fragile digipacks, or () collect the CO releases. They have numbers on the spines, for extra OCD desirability!

    The Arrow cover is truly HORRIBLE, but it'll have original artwork on the other side.
