    You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

      you know to be honest guys i don’t really like deep Red, I prefer OPERA, SUSPIRIA, INFERNO and TENEBRE

      This is the only Argento film that managed to freak me out. I even had to hit STOP on my VCR at one point (the guy getting “attacked” by the doll) and work up the courage to continue! I’ll wait for screenshot comparisons between the Blue Underground and the Arrow Video discs and buy the one that looks better to me.

      I <3 Argento. I also <3 Blue Underground.

      In my top 3 Argento movies, definitely a buy.

    • Masked Slasher

      Please excuse me while I go manipulate myself to this wonderful, wonderful news.

    • Genrewriter

      Cool, this is probably Argento’s best movie. I’ll definitely try to grab it.
