    Yeah, I had my tongue very firmly lodged in my cheek when I made that comment. Synapse does great work but I'm really not the target market for this release much as I love the film.

    Synapse Films Releasing Argento's Suspiria

    Not a favorite of mine at all - I don't think it's fit to lick TENEBRAE's bloody claws - but it's a key title terribly in need of a decent Blu so I'm thrilled Synapse have it. I'm sure they'll do a great job.

    From FB:

    "Best get on it then! Any word on your forthcoming Argento titles... Phenomena, Suspiria and Tenebrae? Are talking next year or this year?"

    "Two this year, we hope. SUSPIRIA may be next year."

    That's good news - at least we'll get two of them, if not all three.

    What's with the downers on Suspiria? Is it a case of overkill? I love it. Its much better than Inferno, although I view them as two peas in a pod. I also love Deep red and Tenebrae, but Suspiria just has it imo. But then again, I really like Phenomena.

    I can understand that to a degree. As someone pointed out earlier in the thread so much has been said/written about the film over the years so over-exposure is bound to cause some folks to burn out on it while at the same time still holding the film in high regard. Personally speaking I listen to the soundtrack album more than I watch the film these days. I'll always love the film and still find it to be an essential Euro horror film and Argento will always be one of my favorite directors but I've seen it so many times I need to give it a break. Its the same thing for me with Friedkin and The Exorcist.

    Marc Morris just posted this on FB:

    Translation:
    Suspiria trailer comparison between DVD D 2005 Blu-ray IT 2009, HD Master D 2014
    This trailer compares the old German DVD, the Italian Blu-ray and the new German HD master from '84.
    This is only a first rough comparison, which can not reproduce the full result on online video platforms by the compression and technical limitations.
    Consider this please as first little sneak preview, not as a basis for comparative discussions on the final image.

    It's the same video that was posted almost two months ago.

    Argento's masterpiece of horror, with its assault of garish colors, booming soundtrack and horrifically dreamlike set pieces, is the cinematic equivalent of an exceptionally scary fun house. It tells the story of Susan (Harper) a young, impressionable American who travels abroad in order to study at a prestigious European ballet academy. From the first day, however, she begins to realize that frightening things are afoot at the hallowed institution. Enduring a rain of maggots, poisoned food and other unpleasant occurrences, she discovers that the school is a secret convening place for an ages-old witches' coven.

    Fixed subs Not my thing. I was interested in this and waiting to see what 84 had instore, and bearing in mind I don't have the full Soundtrack cd, but Fixed subs is something that really distracts and irritates me.
