Doling out Dario Argento's titles slowly, Blue Underground first unleashed "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage" on Blu-Ray some time ago. Now, they've announced that in March the sequel to "Suspiria" -- "Inferno" -- will be available in high-def in the United States.
Argento's "Inferno" is actually already available on Blu-Ray in a region-free format in the UK. But the Blue Underground release promises to cost a lot less than the $45 you have to shell out for the European version.
Due out on March 29, if this release looks as good as the Arrow UK release (which it should) it will be a must-own title, even though it's far from being an Argento classic.
We'll obviously have to wait for "Deep Red" and "Suspiria" to make it to the format in the U.S. Blue Underground has announced "Deep Red" for April 26.
Here's what "Inferno" in the U.S. will feature in terms of extra features:
Art & Alchemy - Interview with Star Leigh McCloskey
Reflections of Rose - Interview with Star Irene Miracle
Interview with Writer/Director Dario Argento and Assistant Director Lamberto Bava
