Arrow Video Giving Dario Argento's 'Tenebrae' a 4K Ultra HD Limited Edition Blu-Ray Release

Fans of the Italian horror master Dario Argento will be pleased to know that Tenebrae, one of his most beloved Giallo films, is getting an epic limited edition 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray release in the UK from Arrow Video on July 18th, 2022. We have detailed all the bonus features and included a look at the box artwork (above/below), along with a link to pre-order a copy RIGHT HERE!

In the early 1980s, Dario Argento (Deep Red, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage), Italy’s legendary master of horror, returned to the giallo thriller genre in which he originally made his name for his most blood-drenched and self-reflexive offering to date: Tenebrae.

Synopsis: “A razor-wielding psychopath is stalking the thriller writer Peter Neal (Anthony Franciosa, Death Wish II), in Rome to promote his latest work, Tenebrae. But the author isn’t the obsessive killer’s only target: the beautiful women who surround him are doomed as, one by one, they fall victim to the murderer’s slashing blade.

Co-starring Daria Nicolodi (Phenomena) and John Saxon (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and featuring stark, modernist photography by Luciano Tovoli (Suspiria), this one-time Video Nasty updates the classic giallo blueprint for a new decade – now fully restored in 4K alongside a plethora of extras old and new and including, for the first time ever, the alternate US cut, Unsane.
