New special editions of four classic features by two of the
masters of Italian horror, plus a more recently minted Canadian undead opus,
are all on the way from Synapse Films. Read on for the exclusive news!
Synapse Films’ Don May Jr. gave Fango the scoop that the
company just acquired Lamberto Bava’s DEMONS and DEMONS 2 and Dario Argento’s
TENEBRAE and PHENOMENA. “We’ll be releasing Blu-rays and DVDs of all four in
2013,” he tells us. “We’re getting better hi-def masters of TENEBRAE and
PHENOMENA, and we’re fixing the timing and color errors that were in the
previous Blu-rays of the DEMONS films. Right now, Calum Waddell and High Rising
Productions are working on supplements for DEMONS and DEMONS 2. They’re putting
together all kinds of stuff for us on those two, with the participation of
Simon Boswell, Alan Jones, Federico Zampaglione and Roy Bava, and many more to
be announced. We haven’t started on the TENEBRAE and PHENOMENA extras yet.”
Look for more details on these releases (for which the images below do not necessarily
represent the cover art) soon.
In addition, Synapse has picked up David J. Francis and Mike
Masters’ horror/comedy mockumentary REEL ZOMBIES, about filmmakers attempting
to make an undead flick in the midst of a real zombie invasion (see review here),
for forthcoming DVD release. “That’s being worked on right now,” May says,
adding that the supplements will include “an audio commentary, deleted scenes
and a trailer, and maybe more.” Keep your eyes here for more on that one as
well, and check out Synapse’s official website.
