Considered the most famous Italian horror film of all time for its vivid, groundbreaking style and jaw-dropping bloodshed, now, to celebrate SUSPIRIA ’s Fortieth Anniversary, CultFilms is proud to terrify audiences once again with the dazzling 4K restoration of Dario Argento's groundbreaking horror masterpiece.

Ballet student Suzy Bannion ( Jessica Harper ) arrives at a prestigious dance academy in Freiburg, a school plagued by gruesome and supernatural happenings. Soon students begin to die in horrific circumstances – is Suzy next, and can she uncover the academy’s sinister secret before it’s too late?

Argento carved a Baroque Expressionist nightmare, saturated with expressionist colours and punctuated by shocking violence. His monumental, epoch-making cinema-redefining visual and aural assault on the senses has become the reference by which all horror genre is measured and its creator, director Dario Argento can now truly be seen as one of the important artists of the 20th century..

Now finally presented for the 1st time ever according to the director’s original vision: the 4K scan was restored painstakingly by the applauded TLE Films (who did the Clint Eastwood Dollar Trilogy among others) with that crucially distinct colour palette reinstated in accordance with Argento’s original specification.

Extras:

  • Special Dual Edition: DVD and Bluray + Embossed Slipcase
  • New Extra: long interview of Dario Argento discussing his Suspiria
  • New Extra: Exclusive Dario Argento Introduction of this new 4k restoration
  • Audio Commentary by critics Kim Newman and Alan Jones
  • Fear at 400 Degrees: interview with Argento and Claudio Simonetti
  • Interview with Claudio Simonetti, Norman J Warren and Patricia McComack (Blu only)
  • New Extra: The 4K Restoration Process “utterly fascinating”

1971 giallo by Dario Argento with a restored version set for UK Blu-ray release on 8th January 2018


Link Here 4th November 2017
The Cat O' Nine Tails Limited Edition Blu-ray Cat o' Nine Tails is a 1971 Italy / France / West Germany mystery thriller by Dario Argento.
Starring James Franciscus, Karl Malden and Catherine Spaak. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

UK: BBFC details not yet published for:

  • 2018 Arrow Limited Edition RB Blu-ray at UK Amazon released on 8th January 2018

The film has been passed 15 uncut for some time, but UK releases have been missing a bit of dialogue. Presumably the restoration here will either restore those scenes or confirm this version as the definitive.

Censorship History
A presumably pre-cut version was passed by the BBFC for an AA rated 1971 cinema release, The 18 rated VHS was slightly shortened for video and 2002 DVD. The same versions was reduced to a 15 rating in 2005. The same version is unrated in the US but the PG rated version is heavily cut.

Promotional Material

Following the success of his debut feature, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, distributor Titanus tasked writer/director Dario Argento with delivering a follow-up in short order. The resulting film, granted a greatly enhanced budget and heralded in its US marketing campaign as nine times more suspenseful than its predecessor, was The Cat O Nine Tails.

When a break-in occurs at a secretive genetics institute, blind puzzle-maker Franco Arnò (Karl Malden, Patton, One-Eyed Jacks), who overheard an attempt to blackmail one of the institute s scientists shortly before the robbery, teams up with intrepid reporter Carlo Giordani (James Franciscus, Beneath the Planet of the Apes) to crack the case. But before long the bodies begin to pile up and the two amateur sleuths find their own lives imperilled in their search for the truth. And worse still, Lori (Cinzia De Carolis, Cannibal Apocalypse), Franco s young niece, may also be in the killer s sights...

This second entry in the so-called Animal Trilogy found Argento further refining his distinctive style and cementing his reputation as the master of the giallo thriller. Co-starring Catherine Spaak (Il Sorpasso) and Rada Rassimov (Baron Blood), and featuring another nerve-jangling score by the great Ennio Morricone (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly), The Cat O Nine Tails remains one of Argento s most suspenseful and underrated films.

    Promotional Material

    Exiled from their home nations, four strangers from separate corners of the earth agree to undertake a dangerous mission to transport unstable dynamite through the dense jungle of South America in order to earn their passage home.

    When the slightest bump in the road could equal instant death, the real question is not whether these men will survive this nerve-shredding ordeal but who will they have become if they return at all?

    After the success of The French Connection and The Exorcist, William Friedkin began work on his biggest project to date. Seizing the moment, he embarked on an ambitious and lengthy shoot in the dense jungles of the Dominican Republic and like Werner Herzog with Fitzcoraldo and Francis Ford Coppola on Apocalypse Now, Friedkin battled the elements, came face-to-face with nature and emerged victorious.

    Now, 40 years since its release, Sorcerer is regarded by critics and filmmakers alike as a true lost cinematic masterpiece - a feat of filmmaking that encapsulates the revolutionary artistry of 1970s American cinema that is a triumph to behold.

    Special Features

    • Sorcerers - A Conversation with William Friedkin and Nicolas Winding Refn (74 minutes)
    • The Mystery of Fate - A letter from director William Friedkin
