Blue Underground Preps Dario Argento's 'The Stendhal Syndrome' for a Limited Edition Blu-ray Release

Posted Tue Apr 11, 2017 at 08:59 AM PDT by

The 3-disc set will feature a new 2K restoration and will be available this summer.

In an early announcement to retailers, Blue Underground says 'The Stendhal Syndrome' return to Blu-ray in a limited edition release later this year.

When beautiful police detective Anna Manni follows the bloody trail of a sophisticated serial murderer/rapist through the streets of Italy, the young woman falls victim to the bizarre "Stendhal Syndrome" - a hallucinatory phenomenon which causes her to lose her mind and memory in the presence of powerful works of art. Trapped in this twilight realm, Anna plunges deeper and deeper into sexual psychosis, until she comes to know the killer's madness more intimately than she ever imagined.

Horror maestro Dario Argento (Suspiria, Opera) reaches new heights of florid fantasy and Grand Guignol with this warped work of art starring Maxim Magazine's "Sexiest Woman in the World" Asia Argento (Land Of The Dead, XXX), Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong, Blade II) and Marco Leonardi (From Dusk Till Dawn 3). Previously edited outside of Italy.

Specs and complete supplemental details have yet to be finalized, but the 3-disc release will feature a 2K restoration and a 1.85:1 aspect ratio, along with a video interview with Asia Argento.
