Dario Argento’s classic horror film Suspiria from 1977 has been restored for release on Ultra HD Blu-ray. The new exclusive 4k restoration from Synapse Films was made from the original uncut 35mm camera negative and includes the original theatrical 4.0 English surround sound mix in high-resolution DTS-HD MA 96kHz/24-bit audio.
The film’s Director of Photography, Luciano Tovoli, supervised the restoration progress of Suspiria for this 2-disc edition from Synapse.
On 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray, Suspiria is presented in 2160p with High Dynamic Range and a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
A second Blu-ray disc contains plenty of extras such as “A Sigh from the Depths: 40 Years of SUSPIRIA,” alternate all-English opening and closing credits sequences, and a 30-minute visual essay “Do You Know Anything About Witches?” among other extras.
And, the slipcover artwork for the Blu-ray edition is reversible (see alternate insert below).
The 2-disc Ultra HD Blu-ray edition of Suspiria is list-priced $59.95 and arrives in stores on Nov. 19, 2019.
