No idea.
In those pix, the red's do look red instead of pinky which is a good sign...although if that new blu has better colors then not sure if I can afford to double dip

This film could be re-released with a transfer upscaled from betamax and I'd probably still bite.

Keep repeating: this is not an addiction!

Am I the only one that has a little laugh to himself at the way Xavier Mendik pronounces Argento with a soft g and Kim Newman pronounces giallo as yiallo? I'll laugh at pretty much anything though.

Check out the trailer at link.

My review assumes that most interested in the Blu-Ray have already seen the movie. I reckon it's well worth buying but you'll have to read reviews of the movie to make up your mind.

A mate of mine and fellow forum member checked out the Suspiria BR yesterday and was stunned by the HD PQ. Especially the film's colours.

Unfortunately, the version we saw *shown on Film 4) was badly dubbed which really hurt the verisimilitude of the dialogue scenes. Although the acting seems pretty ropey anyway. This is not an "acting" film.

Three things mark Suspiria out: 1. the soundtrack, which is by a band called "Goblin" is INCREDIBLE. Youtube it. It's one of the best I've ever heard. Creepy, nightmarish, and at the same time somehow hummable and even dancable. There's all sorts of strange voices and noises in the mix, and it is I'd say at least a third of the reason to see the film.

The other two things are the cinematography and the sets. This is one of the brightest, most colourful films you'll ever see. When a room is red it's RED. The blue is BLUE. There are some very clever shots in this.

Some scenes are very unsettling. A swirl of movement, colour and noise. I think my wife probably liked it more than me because she is better at appreciating photography. It's a real spectacle of a film.

Try to find the non-dubbed version though. I HATE dubbing.

By dubbed, do you mean the English language version? If so, that's how it was done. Most Italian films are done this way, even in their native tongue. It's an Italian movie, but shot for English language (the actors of different nationalities are all speaking English in it). Just the way SUSPIRIA (and thousands of other movies) is.

Maybe the bad synching was down to the Flm 4 broadcast..? I've always found the dubbing to be quite good in this one. Grab the Blu-ray, you won't be disappointed!
