If that's including all the extra stuff (mettropol ticket ect.) Then I can see it as a collectors piece as its not just some film turfed out onto disc with nowt but an isolated music track for company. Real effort has gone into them. It's just a matter of for that price I just bought a bunch of scream factory titles, a better buy in my opinion. It would be nice if Synapse released the restored prints in cheaper bog standard releases at a later date without all the bells and whistles for those of us that just want them for the film.

update.

Checked out Diabloik... $47 each. So that's 57.6373 (57.70 rounded up for both at the current exchange rates.) Question is how much for postage...

Postage for 1 was $14.50 (just under 9). Not sure if it would be the same for 2.

In my experience with Diabolik they charge the same price for 1 DVD to the UK as they do for 5, which is why when I buy something from them I always end up getting 4 or 5 items, just works out cheaper!

Don't hold your breath on that one. As far as I know Synapse only has access to the existing HD master, I don't think Synapse will be getting a new transfer/encoding done. Things might have changed, but this was the last I heard.

No way in hell will Don release the existing version of Suspiria. The man's a perfectionist and loves the film. It'll be colour-corrected.

From blu-ray.com...

Synapse Films has announced that it has acquired the U.S. home video rights to Italian director Dario Argento's cult film Suspiria (1977), starring Jessica Harper, Stefania Casini, Flavio Bucci, Barbara Magnolfi, Udo Kier, Alida Valli, and Joan Bennett. Synapse Films has also confirmed that it will work closely with Technicolor Rome and Technicolor Los Angeles to create an all-new high-definition 2K scan from the original negative for a possible 2014-15 video release.

Following the acquisition announcement Don May, Jr., President of Synapse Films, said: "I've been involved in the restoration and release of many films in my career, but Suspiria has always eluded me, until now. It's one of my favorite horror films and I'm ecstatic that my business partner, Jerry Chandler, was able to negotiate with the rights holders to release this film. This is going to be an amazing project for us." May also added: "It's important to spend as much time as possible to create the definitive high-definition home video version for the fans. We're going to take our time with this one."

EDIT: Bought the other 2 from Trebor, thanks mate!

Mate as Stephen has said, It is getting a full (as far as I am aware) makeover. :)

PS
If it receives the attention Demons 1&2 received this is going to be very special indeed.
