FEBRUARY 23rd FROM SYNAPSE FILMS

 

A 3-DISC (BLU-RAY, DVD & CD) LIMITED STEELBOOK™ EDITION OF DARIO

ARGENTO’S HORROR CLASSIC! ONLY 3000 UNITS PRODUCED!

 

American mys­tery author Peter Neal (Anthony Franciosa) comes to Italy to pro­mote his newest nov­el, TENEBRAE. Unfortunately, a razor-wield­ing seri­al killer is on the loose, taunt­ing Neal and mur­der­ing those around him in grue­some fash­ion just like the char­ac­ter in his nov­el. As the mys­tery sur­round­ing the killings spi­rals out of con­trol, Neal inves­ti­gates the crimes on his own, lead­ing to a mind-bend­ing, gen­re-twist­ing con­clu­sion that will leave you breath­less!
