Dario Argento's masterpiece Deep Red hits Blu-ray in April via Arrow Video!

Hands down one of my favorite horror films of all time is director Dario Argento's DEEP RED (aka Profondo Rosso). It's the film that gave me my love of giallos and if you didn't know, I'm a massive giallo fan. And I consider DEEP RED and BLOOD & BLACK LACE to be the best of the best.

It's with this in mind I wanted to make sure all of you guys were aware that Argento's masterpiece is coming to Blu-ray via Arrow Video this April with a killer edition.

The new limited edition two-disc Blu-ray is loaded with special features and sports some of the most badass DEEP RED art I have seen in all my days (via Gilles Vranckx). You can check out the awesome cover art and details below, along with a list of special features, and then let us know what you think!

Synopsis:

From Dario Argento, maestro of the macabre and the man behind some of the greatest excursions in Italian horror (Suspiria, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage), comes Deep Red – the ultimate giallo movie. 

One night, musician Marcus Daly (David Hemmings, Blow Up), looking up from the street below, witnesses the brutal axe murder of a woman in her apartment. Racing to the scene, Marcus just manages to miss the perpetrator… or does he? As he takes on the role of amateur sleuth, Marcus finds himself ensnared in a bizarre web of murder and mystery where nothing is what it seems… 

Aided by a throbbing score from regular Argento collaborators Goblin, Deep Red (aka Profondo Rosso and The Hatchet Murders) is a hallucinatory fever dream of a giallo punctuated by some of the most astonishing set-pieces the sub-genre has to offer.

DEEP RED (Profondo Rosso) hits Blu-ray on April 10.
