Suspiria - 40th Anniversary Leatherbook is gorgeous

03.09.2017by: Mike Sprague

This a fun article to write. You see this 40th anniversary Blu-ray of SUSPIRIA is only available in Germany - better go ahead and buy that all-region player you've been eyeing - and so I had to go to the German company's Facebook page and translate all the info.

Forgive me if anything is a tad off here or there.

The point is this is an amazing 40th Anniversary Limited Edition of one of the greatest horror movies ever made, so German, or not, I think this might be worth the buy. Hell it's not like I don't already own the movie on VHS, DVD (two versions), and Blu-ray. I'll just buy this for the box!

Anyhow, here begins the translations. I'm putting this in quotes for visual sake, but bits and pieces may be off here and there.

In May 1977 SUSPIRIA celebrated its cinematic premiere in Germany. Just in time for his 40th birthday '84 Center celebrates Dario Argento's Masterpiece, SUSPIRIA for the first time in the authorized 4k restoration of the original camera negative. Suspiria finally shines in new splendor, with many new tools, as well as improved sound tracks.

Best I can translate this line: "One morning, I have two girl murdered in her blood..." WTF...

Dario Argento, the master of the Italian horror movies has one of the most prominent and most impressive horror shocker ever created with SUSPIRIA. A true masterpiece! This new Leather Book is limited to 1111 pieces. The leather book is made from real wood with wood drawer, red leather, deep and silver coinage.

Hope I got most of that... Here is a rundown on the Special Features;
