    DARIO ARGENTO’S GIALLO MASTERPIECE FINALLY COMES TO U.S. BLU-RAY ON FEBRUARY 23rd FROM SYNAPSE FILMS

    A 3-DISC (BLU-RAY, DVD & CD) LIMITED STEELBOOK™ EDITION OF DARIO ARGENTO’S HORROR CLASSIC! ONLY 3000 UNITS PRODUCED!

    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! Starring John Saxon (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET), Daria Nicolodi (Dario Argento’s PHENOMENA) and John Steiner (CALIGULA), this slasher-horror classic also features an amazing music score from Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli and Massimo Morante (formerly of Italian progressive-rock band, Goblin).

    RAZOR-SHARP SPECIAL FEATURES 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 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
    - Collectible Steelbook™ Packaging by Silver Ferox Design

    SPECIAL FEATURES EXCLUSIVE TO THE BLU-RAY DISC 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, Richard Stanley, and more!
    - Original UNSANE (U.S. version of TENEBRAE) end credits sequence
    - Alternate opening credits sequence
    - Japanese SHADOW theatrical trailer

    INCLUDES A BONUS COMPACT DISC (19 Tracks) featuring an all-new 2015 remaster of the TENEBRAE motion picture soundtrack, containing additional tracks not included on the original 1982 album.

      Synapse just posted on Facebook & Twitter that less than 500 copies of the Tenebrae steelbook remain in stock

      What exactly are all the changes made? Is it posted online somewhere?

      I don't think so. They're listed (there's dozens of corrections) in the booklet, plus there's also some corrections made that aren't even listed in the booklet.

      Can someone post a pic of the booklet where it shows the changes? This is a deciding factor for me lol.

      Here's a scan of the booklet where it lists the corrections. These are what Synapse listed before they repaired them in the restoration. I'm sure it's only a "sampling" like it says since it only goes up to about 35 minutes into the film, and there were additional corrections that people noticed over on the Blu-ray.com forum for it. I don't have direct links to those, but they are listed somewhere in the Tenebrae SteelBook thread on there.

      Damn, I have watched my Arrow Blu-Ray three times, and never noticed these thing :eek:
      Maybe better if I don't look for them ;)

      That review pretty much made my case for forgetting this release.

      Wow thanks for posting that.

      I didn't notice like any of those issues on the arrow tbh.

      I did notice a couple of them on the Arrow Blu-ray...but most are only on a single frame or several frames, so even a blink will miss them easily.

      I really don't notice any of these issues, so I´ll keep watching my Arrow disc, and put my money on new releases, like The Church, The Sect etc.
      I'll upgrade Tenebre, when a new 4K transfer shows up ;)

      Yeah, that's what I don't get. I won't be upgrading my Arrow disc, either. Clearly there will be another stab at this movie down the road, anyway. So I am not concerned with issues I don't even notice. I do get it that it is still worth it for those who don't own it on blu yet though.

      I had the same experience. I didn't notice any of those flaws but I don't want to be on the lookout for them either.

      Why make it more difficult for buyers to get your product? Doesn't make sense to me from a business stand point.

      I was actually wondering the same thing as "QUANTITY TOO LOW TO LIST ON SITE." just sounds bizarre to me. I looked at the Synapse page and it says that the store is closed until 6/6; you can still order online but it won't ship out until 6/6 and if you want your order sent right away you have to call that number and order, so I guess maybe the number is low enough that they worry they might come back on 6/6 and find some un-fillable orders for Tenebre(?). I wonder if it will be back on the site after 6/6 if it doesn't sell out before then though, you can still order both Demons steelbooks from the site...
