Synapse films just announced 2 new titles as part of their upcoming Blu Ray releases in March. First up is Suspiria, this time in a standard 2-Disc edition. As you know, Synapse recently released the much publicised Suspiria for the very first time on Blu-Ray in the U.S. in a gorgeous and highly impressive Steelbook Edition, complete with Goblins incredible score. Not surprisingly, the set sold out and flippers are having a field day with it on the secondhand market. But we all knew it was only a matter of time before Synapse would announce a "Non-Steelbook" edition that was a little more wallet-friendly to those of us on a budget. Well that time has come, and while this new release isn't exactly cheap, it's a little cheaper than what the Steelbook was going for.
Just looking at the specs, this release looks to have all of the exact same technical details as well as all of the Special Features imported over from their previous Steelbook, just without the score and in a standard Blu-Ray case.
Features:Definitely be sure to snag this one because having grabbed the Steelbook myself before they sold out, the transfer is absolutely stunning in a way you would never have expected. Not sure if this will ultimately sell out as well, but it's definitely worth the price in my opinion.
Suspiria retails for $43.95
Next up is the excellent documentary Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary. I recently had the pleasure of catching this on Amazon a few months back and I can say that it was every bit as entertaining and informative as I hoped it would be. Writer and directors John Campopiano and Justin White have meticulously put together an exhaustive compilation of information that is all things Pet Sematary, from the books inception to it's transition to the big screen and it's production. No stone has been left unturned and Campopiano and White have done a killer job on this documentary. If you love the book, the film, the actors or are just a casual Stephen King fan in general, this is a MUST WATCH.
FeaturesUnearthed & Untold will retail for $24.95
Suspiria and Unearth & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary are set for a March 13, 2018 release.
You can pre-order either of these titles directly from the Synapse Films official website, or any of your preferred online retailers.
