CONTEST CLOSED! It’s Argento Overload for UK Readers! Win a DVD Triple-Pack!

Published

on

To celebrate the release of their latest batch of Dario Argento DVDs, Arrow Video and The Associates are teaming up with Dread Central to give two lucky UK readers a triple-threat pack including The Card Player, The Stendhal Syndrome, and Terror at the Opera!

The Card Player (review here)
A serial killer is on the loose in Rome, kidnapping women and using them as the stake in a series of deadly games of poker played with the police over the internet. If the police win, the victim is set free; if they lose, the victim dies and the police are rewarded with a gruesome video of the murder being committed. When a British tourist becomes involved, disgraced Irish cop John Brennan (Liam Cunningham) is sent to Rome to investigate. There, he teams up with Anna Mari (Stefania Rocca), the no-nonsense Italian detective heading up the investigation. Once they set about tracking down the killer, they are forced to play the game themselves, but the stakes are raised even higher when a police chief’s daughter (Fiore Argento) is abducted and it becomes apparent the ‘Card Player’ knows more about Anna than she would like.”

Special features include: Double-sided sleeve featuring new artwork; exclusive collector’s booklet; poster; “The Making of The Card Player” featurette; The Card Player promo; trailer; Dario Argento trailer gallery; English 5.1 and 2.0 audio options.

The Stendhal Syndrome (review here)
Considered by many to be a remarkable return to vintage form for the Italian master of suspense and terror, The Stendhal Syndrome stars the director’s real life daughter, Asia Argento as Anna Manni, a young detective in Rome’s anti-rape unit. Anna suffers from Stendhal Syndrome, a mental condition that causes her to retreat into horrifying hallucinations when confronted with works of art. On the trail of a serial rapist and killer, she is given the suspect’s whereabouts by way of a tip-off. But, unknown to Anna, the killer has discovered the secret of her illness and uses it against her, eventually kidnapping her and forcing her to become an unwilling witness to his crimes. Of course, this being a Dario Argento film, nothing is quite as it seems and the plot takes a terrifying twist when Anna discovers the true face of madness.

Special features include: Double-sided sleeve featuring new artwork; exclusive collector’s booklet; poster; Dario Argento trailer gallery; theatrical trailer; English 5.1 and Italian 5.1 audio options.

Terror at the Opera
Spanish actress Cristina Marsillach stars as Betty, a young and inexperienced opera singer who gets at a chance at her big break starring in a production of Verdi’s ‘Macbeth’ when the lead is forced to pull out following a road accident. Despite her belief that the production is cursed, Betty accepts the role and receives universal acclaim for her performance. Unfortunately, her star turn also attracts the attention of a mysterious psychopathic ‘fan’ who repeatedly kidnaps her, ties her up, and, by taping needles to her eyelids so she is unable to blink, forces her to witness him violently murdering her friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. But who is the masked killer, and why is he targeting her?

Special features include: Double-sided sleeve featuring new artwork; exclusive collector’s booklet; poster; feature presentation (102 minutes) with English 5.1 and Italian 5.1 audio options; US edit of feature (91 minutes) with original ‘Cannes dub’ (English 2.0); US edit of feature (91 minutes) with approved, re-dubbed English 2.0 audio; Dario Argento filmography and biography; photo gallery; Opera by Demonia music video; Dario Argento trailer gallery; Top 6 gore scenes; US trailer; international trailer.
