Arrow Video - Sleepless
Here is the front sleeve artwork for the final of the first three initial releases from Arrow Video. Dario Argento's Sleepless was a rare return to form for the director. I interviewed him at the time it came out and asked him why he he'd taken so long to return to making giallos. Given the enthusiastic reaction to Sleepless he admitted to wondering that himself.
Anyway - enough of the chatter - here's the painted artwork and this was the final piece from Rick. By this point he was really flying and not a single modification was made to this one. What I find really exciting is I've never seen a single decent piece of artwork for this film - even the official Italian poster was dull beyond belief - especially considering some of the great set pieces the film has.
I'm keen to see whether you all think we've re-addressed this injustice. The artwork is inspired by the bravura train sequence early in the film.
THE MASTER OF NIGHTMARES IS BACK!
Dario Argento’s Sleepless sees the director return to true giallo form in a nightmarish slasher movie of considerable style and tension.
A retired police detective is forced back into action to try and solve the case of a serial killer who makes an unwelcome return to society. Hang onto that idea, and then steel yourself for a bravura thrill ride of Argento patented murderous set pieces including a stunning opening sequence aboard a train.
The prowling camerawork, the relentless Goblin music score, and uncompromising moments of mayhem attack the senses with vicious flair that will leave you Sleepless!
i've mentioned it to him in passing. If these sleeves go down well then we can get him doing more releases and hopefully all have some fun seeing what he comes up with.
Fantastic.I'm gonna flog my current version.
Come. It is time to keep your appointment with the Wicker man.
