High Def Digest
Nothing gives me more joy than rediscovering my favorite films on Blu-ray, which is why I was quite excited for the April 26th bow of Dario Argento’s classic giallo Deep Red. Not to worry, it’s still coming … but now we’ve got to wait a little bit longer.
High Def Digest got word that Blue Underground has pushed the release date of Argento’s giallo to May 17th, 2011.
Blue Underground’s DVD will feature the first release of the David Hemmings-starring shocker’s uncensored English-language version, while the Blu-ray will include that plus the full-length Italian-language director’s cut. Each has been newly transferred in high definition from the original camera negative in 2.35:1 widescreen, with DTS-ES 6.1, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround EX and original mono soundtracks on the DVD and DTS-HD 7.1, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround EX and original mono audio on the Blu-ray.
Retail prices are $14.98 for the DVD, $29.98 for the Blu-ray. Dig on the box art below.
