Deep Red

Dario Argento’s genuinely unnerving masterpiece hits Blu-ray


Horror

Rod Lott
I'd seen Dario Argento's 1975 masterpiece "Deep Red" once before, about 10 years ago on a muddy print from one of those multidisc collections of public-domain horror films you pick up in bargain bins.

The Nesting

A forgotten ’80s horror film is ripe for rediscovery


Horror

Rod Lott
No wonder 1981's "The Nesting" is such an obscure horror film. What the hell does that title even mean?

Torso

Hungry for giallo? Take a stab at this one.


Horror

Rod Lott
So good are its recent Dario Argento reissues in high-definition that I'd been waiting patiently for Blue Underground's Blu-ray release of "Torso," a 1973 giallo from director Sergio Martino ("The Mountain of the Cannibal God"). Not only did it not disappoint, but it surpassed my expectations.

Horror

Rod Lott
Blue Underground's cover of the Blu-ray debut of 1975's "Night Train Murders" bears the blurb, "More reprehensible than 'Last House on the Left'!"

The Killer Nun

Mercy me!


Horror

Rod Lott
Forgive and forget — the one ability that Sister Gertrude (La Dolce Vita star Anita Ekberg) sorely lacks, in 1979's The Killer Nun, one of the more popular entries in the whacked-out subgenre known as “nunsploitation.” However, the Italian project may be the only one based on a true story.

Django, Kill! (If You Live Shoot!)

Viewer, watch!


Western

Rod Lott
Is there a title more intriguing yet baffling than the punctuation-heavy Django, Kill! (If You Live Shoot!)? Don't answer that. The important thing is just that the 1967 Italian cult favorite now has been unleashed uncensored on Blu-ray from Blue Underground.

Thriller

Rod Lott
Blue Underground continues its all-aces reissues of Dario Argento's work on Blu-ray with his sophomore film, 1971's "The Cat o' Nine Tails."
