SYNAPSE FILMS ANNOUNCES THE SINGLE-DISC RELEASE OF TENEBRAE, DARIO ARGENTO’S GIALLO MASTERPIECE, ON BLU-RAY AND DVD SEPTEMBER 13th

 

 

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!

Following its successful limited edition Steelbook release earlier this year, Synapse Films is thrilled to bring this legendary Italian horror classic into wide release. Featuring an amazing synth-music score from Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli and Massimo Morante (formerly of Italian progressive-rock band, Goblin), this all-new 1080p high-definition TENEBRAE release was created from the original uncut camera negative. Also stars John Saxon (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET), Daria Nicolodi (Dario Argento‘s PHENOMENA) and John Steiner (CALIGULA).
