DVD review: The Stendhal Syndrome

If you already own a copy of the Italian release of The Stendhal Syndrome, then whether you consider this new edition to be a worthwhile purchase will be dependent on whether you feel that the price is worth paying for a slightly improved transfer and new bonus materials. If, however, you only own the poor quality Troma or Dutch Film Works releases, then I would definitely recommend this release.

I’ve reviewed Blue Underground’s recent release of Dario Argento’s The Stendhal Syndrome, presented for this first time uncut in North America in this 2-disc special edition, courtesy of DVD Pacific.

Yep, classic indeed. One of those odd films that a) I think is fantastic, b) I need to get a copy of, and c) I don't want to watch again any time soon, simply because of the trauma the audience is put through.

Alas, probably one of the last releases from Blue Underground since Bill Lustig is pulling the plug.

That's not completely true Phantom.They will continue to release stuff but not on a regular basis.

I guess this blows the French release out of the water?

Afraid I haven’t seen the French one, so I can’t comment.
