    Some updated info:

    **THE BLOODSTAINED BUTTERFLY FINAL SPECS**
    Good news! We've made a couple of additions to our release of The Bloodstained Butterfly. Check out the revised specs below and, if you haven't already, pre-order you copy via the links below:
    Pre-order the UK edition: http://bit.ly/29Rs0AH
    Pre-order the US edition: http://bit.ly/29Rtivw

    ----------------------------------
    Directed by Duccio Tessari (Death Occurred Last Night, A Pistol for Ringo), The Bloodstained Butterfly melds 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!

    •Brand new 4K restoration of the film from the original camera negative
    •High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations
    •Original Italian and English soundtracks in DTS-HD MA mono 1.0
    •Newly translated English subtitles for the Italian soundtrack

    •New audio commentary with critics Alan Jones and Kim Newman
    •Murder in B-Flat Minor, a new visual essay on the film, its cast and crew by author Troy Howarth

    I'm looking forward to that interview with Evelyn Stewart/Ida Galli, don't recall seeing her in any of these special features going back quite a ways. I hope it covers more that just this film in her career.

    Rewatching this for the first time in years, via Arrow's new release, I'm surprised to notice that the photographs of the murdered girl in the lab scene about 15-20 minutes into the picture are almost certainly real forensic photographs of a corpse. That soured the taste of the cup of tea I was drinking at the time.

    I know I'm both paranoid and colour blind but this looks like another Ritrovata release with issues.
    Seems to have the characteristic weak gamma and yellow colour. But I thought Arrow were correcting these - they did for Deep Red at least.

    I had a nice watch with the Italian track & the new Eng subs....the film played much better for me than I remembered.

    Ditto for me, on both counts, John: I thought the presentation was pleasing, and the watching the picture in Italian for the first time, I found it more interesting than I remembered it to be.

    What the hell happened to the regular edition? Sold out already? How am I now supposed to complete my Italian Genre Cinema series? My OCD is tingling.
    Looking for Orozco the Embalmer (Camera Obscura) and the Swedish theatrical poster of Breaking Point (Vibenius/"Ron Silberman Jr.", 1975).
