For the last year things have gotten exciting with Blu-rays covering the Giallo films directed by Sergio Martino (Torso & Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key). Five of his six films that took place in the golden age of mysterious killers with leather gloves have been released in a Blu-ray format that plays in North America. Now the Blu-ray of All the Colors of the Dark (a.k.a. All the Colours of the Dark) is coming to America thanks to Severin Films. The movie has Edwige Fenech (The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh) seek help for horrible nightmares pills and therapy. When those don’t work, she lets a nice neighbor lady take her to a black mass with a cult. Turns out this isn’t great advice and the nightmare gets more real for her. The Blu-ray will be ready to order on Severin Film’s website as part of their Black Friday sale. The 2-disc set has a new 4K transfer from the original negative. There will also be a CD of the soundtrack. Other bonus features include:
*They’re Coming To Get You – Alternate US Cut
*Color My Nightmare – Interview with Director Sergio Martino
*Last Of The Mohicans – Interview with Screenwriter Ernesto Gastaldi
*Giallo is the Color – Interviews with Actor George Hilton & Italian Horror Expert Antonio Tentori
*Audio Commentary with Kat Ellinger, Author of All The Colors of Sergio Martino
But wait, there’s more coming out that same day.
They’re also releasing All the Colors of Giallo which includes a feature length documentary on the genre, trailers that should cover every notable film and a greatest hits soundtrack hit. You can get both All the Colors of the Dark and All the Colors of Giallo in a limited edition dual slip case. You’ll be ready to entertain your Great Aunt Anna when she shows up extra early to get a good seat on the couch Christmas Eve.
