"For anyone on the fence about the movie, the insightful extra features may help you reassess your feelings on it. In any case, it is a very limited edition and will sell out before long, so if our hearty recommendation is enough to sway you—you’d better jump on this one fast." - Under the Radar

One of Dario Argento's weirder films receives a jaw-dropping 4K restoration and context-providing bonus materials in this stacked UHD edition from Synapse.

THE DEAD RISE LIKE NEVER BEFORE WHEN SYNAPSE FILMS BRINGS THE LIVING DEAD AT MANCHESTER MORGUE TO BLU-RAY JUNE 7TH!

“This is one of my favourite zombie films of them all; a genuinely chilling UK set horror...” – Edgar Wright, director of Baby Driver and Shaun of the Dead

"[A] still-startling nightmare creation that was years ahead of its time." - Mitch Davis, Fantasia International Film Festival

"The transfer itself is quite the eye opener compared to the earlier Blu-rays and other transfers, with a gargantuan increase in detail throughout... As far as upgrades go, this is one of the most extreme in recent memory." - Mondo Digital

With its revolutionary mix of shocking-for-its-time violence and sociopolitical themes, George A. Romero's 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead quickly proved to be enormously influential with filmmakers around the world, and few were able to match its power like Jorge Grau's THE LIVING DEAD AT MANCHESTER MORGUE. Mixing a strong environmental statement with unforgettably terrifying set pieces, Grau's film stands on its own as a horror classic, and now it's been restored to its horrifying glory on Blu-ray by Synapse Films!

A strange twist of fate brings two young travelers, George (Ray Lovelock, The Cassandra Crossing) and Edna (Christine Galbo, The House That Screamed), to a small town where an experimental agricultural machine may be bringing the dead back to life! As zombies infest the area and attack the living, a bull-headed detective (Academy Award® nominee Arthur Kennedy, Peyton Place) thinks the couple are Satanists responsible for the local killings. George and Edna have to fight for their lives, and prove their innocence, as they try and stop the impending zombie apocalypse!

THE LIVING DEAD AT MANCHESTER MORGUE (aka Let Sleeping Corpses Lie and Don’t Open the Window) is a gory horror tale from Spanish director Jorge Grau and widely considered to be one of the best zombie films ever made. Beautifully restored in 4K from the original camera negative, Synapse Films presents the film with the true original English theatrical mono mix and the real opening and closing credit sequences intact

SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE:

• Exclusive new 4K restoration from the original 35mm camera negative

• New 5.1 English stereo surround remix made exclusively for the Synapse Films release

• Two audio commentaries featuring authors and film scholars Troy Howarth, Nathaniel Thompson and Bruce Holecheck

• Restoration of the true original English language theatrical mono mix

• Jorge Grau - Catalonia’s Cult Film King (89 mins.) – This extensive feature-length documentary explores the life and films of director Jorge Grau

• The Scene of the Crime - Giannetto De Rossi in Discussion from Manchester (16 Mins.)

• Giannetto De Rossi - Q&A at the Festival of Fantastic Films, UK (43 Mins)

• Theatrical trailer, TV spots and radio spots

• Newly translated removable English SDH subtitles

,,Django The Bastard" to intrygujący spaghetti western z elementami horroru. Za reżyserię odpowiada Sergio Garrone znany głównie z kina gatunkowego. W głównej roli występuje Anthony Steffen, który zagrał w ponad dwudziestu włoskich westernach. ,,Django The Bastard" jest jedną z jego bardziej udanych produkcji. Aktor wyglądem, sposobem bycia i mimiką przypomina Clinta Eastwooda. W roli rewolwerowca-zjawy sprawdził się zatem znakomicie. Główny bohater mści się na oprychach za krzywdy sprzed lat. Problem w tym, że jego oprawcy są przekonani, że mężczyzna nie żyje. Na plus oprócz zimnokrwistego Steffena należy zaliczyć gęstą atmosferę, świetne ujęcia (dość nowatorskie jak na produkcję z 1969 roku) oraz klimat grozy. Odrestaurowana wersja wygląda świetnie, przez co nie mamy wrażenia, że obcujemy z filmem, który ma na koncie ponad pięćdziesiąt lat. ,,Django The Bastard", reż. Sergio Garrone, 1969, Synapse Films #DjangoTheBastard #Django #spaghettiwestern #SynapseFilms

What’s everyone watching tonight? Michael Viers and Amanda Viers pick of the evening is Dario Argento’s masterpiece SUSPIRIA. Major kudos for the tireless work of Synapse Films for an amazing restoration. The audio is incredible on a good system. . . “The only thing more terrifying than the last 12 minutes, are the first 92 minutes.” . . . . . #suspiria #synapsefilms #darioargento #darianicolodi #blurayhorrorcollection #oneperfectshot #everyframeapainting #cinematography
An excellent release by Synapse Films. Very good transfers on both movies, but the first one is among the best transfers I've seen this year. It's definitely on my top 10 list for (2021). Fun movies too, I enjoyed these. Nice work! Full Review: https://www.reddit.com/r/HD_MOVIE_SOURCE/comments/qyhp1t/demons_1_2_19851986_4k_uhd_review_the_basics/
