Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.17.14] Italy horror giallo

Synapse films are currently hard at work restoring Dario Argento's Giallo classic Suspiria for a 4K Blu-ray release and have shared some test images from the process.

They are quick to say these should be considered test images created for sizing, basic color, etc. only and are not final color, or final restored images. They still need to do restoration, and apparently the film is in dire shape.

But even these samples of their preliminary work are pretty stunning. Suspiria is easily one of best looking horror films of all time and its mood relies heavily on its colouring and image.

I'm certainly excited to see this release moving forward. Blue Underground released the film a few years back as a special 2-disc DVD release and, while it's great, this is going to be definitive.
