As if I didn’t love the Music Box Theatre enough already, they have made a deal with Scorpion Releasing to distribute a few of Scorpion’s titles on Blu-ray and DVD, through their Doppelgänger Releasing division. The first of these titles to be coming out is one of my personal favorites of Dario Argento, his 1987 film Opera, which should be out before the end of this year. With the release of Suspiria from Synapse Films, this is going to make a great way to end the year for Italian horror fans.
But it doesn’t stop there. Early next year, two more amazing films will be coming from this new partnership. Michele Soavi’s The Church (1989) and The Sect (1991) will be getting their Blu-ray treatment early next year. Soavi’s early horror titles are musts for any fan of Italian horror and these are two great examples of the director’s talent.
Each of these films will be released as Collector’s Editions, with remastered/restored editions, with both older supplemental materials as well as newly produced features as well. Once more details come out on exactly what is one each of the releases, we will pass them on here. I just know that I’ve very excited to see these films get the special treatment they deserve.
