Have'nt seen it in HMV or Zavvi.
I've seen an Argento box set in Zavvi but I couldnt get at it to see what was on it as it was beside the Manga section and there was a large crowd of school kids gathered round and I did'nt wanna be rude and push them outta the way.

Deep Red, Tennabrae and MOT are easy enough to get in Zavvi and HMV though. I got the latter 2 there. Will get Deep Red when I go to get Night Trains. (soon)

I might try the 'World Cinema' section for Suspiria.

When my local Zavvi was still a Virgin Megastore they always had Suspiria and Tenebre in the horror section. Virgin had a wicked horror section though... Zavvi's is less impressive.

We've just had a massive HMV open in Liverpool (hurrah!) and their horror section seems pretty cool so next time I'm in town I'll check out what Argento (if any) they have.

The second one has the best cover art, but I like the first one with Jennifer, too.

The ABUK set is certainly an interesting option for Argento newbies, though the cover art is suprisingly flat given the visual euvre of the Argento movie universe.

The ABUK set contains the uncut version of Stendhal Syndrome - but it's full-bloody-screen!!

It was the first or second one that I saw. It definetly had a white sleave.
Tennabrae I got for a fiver, but the last time I saw Suspiria was about 6 months ago in a small indie shop.

What about favourite Argento moments. It's such a small thing but the eye in the closet in Deep Red spooks me big time - makes me think of the blue meanies. I also love any moment where the killer is outside the door/window/on telephone whispering sweet nothings along the lines of "I'm gonna slice yer bollocks off yer bastard", which he seems to go in for quite a bit.

I love those moments too, Evan. I love the bit in Profondo Rosso where the killer whispers something like, "I'm going to kill you later" through to door at Hemmings. Spooks me big time!

Argento was a real innovator in terms of where he placed the camera too. There's a cracking shot during the credit sequence of FOUR FLIES when he shoots from behind the strings of an acoustic guitar.

Is'nt there a scene in Deep Red were the killer's face can be briefly glimpsed in a mirror as the camera moves along a corridor of mirrors and paintings, or somthing.

I've never managed to see it though.
The last time I looked was when Isaw Deep Red on the Redemption vhs.,
