Quote: 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!

The collection will 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 (DTS-HD MA English 2.0 Mono / DTS-HD MA Italian 2.0 Mono) 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

The Limited Edition Exclusive extras (i.e. the stuff that won't appear on the eventual non-Steelbook release) will 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!
