    Okay call me stupid or ignorant, but is Anchor Bay planning on releasing Suspiria on DVD? I thought I heard something about this a few months ago, but I can't say for certain. So if anyone knows anything, I would be happy to hear it

    Yes! Both a standard release and a limited edition tin of Suspiria will be released in late 2001.

    You can check the <A HREF="/extras/comingsoon.shtml">Coming Soon</A> list to see what horror stuff is coming this year.

    Here's some news from the excellent Argento resource (although their DVD reviews leave a lot to be desired in comparison to HorrorDVD.com [​IMG]):
    http://www.darkdreams.org/darkdreams.html

    "I have received some information from Bill Lustig about the forthcoming CAT O'NINE TAILS and SUSPIRIA DVD's.

    He has just returned from Roma after doing new interviews with Dario for the two discs.
    Also, after rumours that Dario had fallen out with Anchor Bay, Bill reports that he is delighted with thier DVD releases so far and wants Anchor Bay to release NON HO SONNO!

    Specifically on the subject of SUSPIRIA, they will be using a new low contrast print for the THX certified transfer which will come from the original camera negative which has been re-graded under the supervision of the film's cinematographer Luciano Tovoli!

    According to Technicolor Roma, this negative has not been touched in 20 years.

    After 2 months and 3 test prints, they are awaiting the final approved print from Technicolor to begin the transfer in L.A.

    The audio facility, Chase Productions, has been sorting the original English stereo elements to be re-mixed in January into Dolby Digital 6.1 EX under the supevision of Claudio Simonetti. They will also be re-mixing the mono Italian and French soundtracks into Dolby 5.1."

    Definitely looks like they are going to do a primo job with Suspiria. I just wish they'd fix up the credit sequence of Profundo Rosso... [​IMG]

    Wow! Thanks for all the info guys!
     
  6. Don't get too excited. Not only have they used digital credits for the opening credits of Profondo Rosso but they've done the same for the end credits of Suspiria.

    Who told you that? Is the dvd mastered already?
     
  8. I got that info from darkdreams.org I think. The webmaster, Nick, always has reliable info about Argento dvd releases.

    Funny you say that. I write for darkdreams.org (I am Akis) and I do not recall Nick saying such a thing.
     
  10. I said "I think", I regularly post on the forum and visit that site so it seems like the most likely place to get that info. It was either there or DVD Nightmare.

    Just after the quote I got from DarkDreams, they mentioned that Bill Lustig realised he screwed up on Profundo Rosso, to quote:

    "As a side note, I asked Bill about the freeze frame end credits on the DEEP RED DVD. Here is what he said:

    'The reason for the end credits freeze frame is that the Italians did not have the textless background to layback the English end credits. In light of the valid complaints, I should have let the Italian end credits roll up over the moving background followed by the English credits over black. I made a well intended wrong decision'.
    "

    So I somehow doubt that given he realized and admitted he did the wrong thing with Profundo Rosso, he isn't about to do it with Suspiria.

    And speaking of Profundo Rosso, anyone know if the UK release will be complete... Given the garbage treatment they have given Argento's films so far, I'm not holding out any hope...

    DVD Nightmare is no more eh? Ah well. It really went down the tubes the last six months. I deleted my bookmark for it about a month ago, after getting sick of the lack of updates...

    The lizard scene and the dog fighting scene will be cut, that's for sure.

    Ah yes, the old BBFC "you can show people getting cut up, blown up shot, raped, but show an animal which may be distressed, or people headbutting, or non-firearm weapons, and that's a no no...". Was Lassie cut in the UK? Poor old Lassie looked pretty distressed when Timmy got stuck in a well [​IMG]

    Heh, heh. Thanks guys. I have this theory that the BBFC thinks that the country will descend into pure anarchy if the people realise that you can hurt and kill people with common household items like a broom handle, or your forehead. If people just think that you need firearms to kill people, that's ok, as firearms are harder to come by...
