Dario Argento’s ‘Tenebrae’ Comes to 4K UHD With a Ton of Features

Published

on

Tenebrae

Tenebrae marks one of Dario Argento’s finest Giallo pictures. It has all the hallmarks of one of the greats. Religion, black gloves, straight razor, long coat, disguised killer, elements of a whodunnit, etc… Synapse Films presents an amazing edition of the Argento classic. A completely beautiful set of discs that really does make it feel like you are watching the film for the first time all over again.

While this wasn’t at all the first Giallo picture ever made, it did manage to set a bar for being absolutely stunning and beautiful despite its intense use of gore. One famous scene, in particular, sees a young woman with a freshly slashed throat – spraying her blood all over the room. The result looks like a painter making their masterwork. However, instead it is the arterial spray painting the walls from stark white to crimson.

The synopsis for Tenebrae goes like this:

Tenebrae stars Anthony Franciosa, John Saxon, John Steiner and Daria Nicolodi.

American mystery author Peter Neal (Anthony Franciosa, Death Wish II) comes to Rome to promote his newest novel, Tenebrae. A razor-wielding psychopath is on the loose, taunting Neal and murdering those around him in gruesome fashion just like the character in his novel. As the mystery surrounding the killings spirals out of control, Neal investigates the crimes on his own, leading to a mind-bending, genre-twisting conclusion that will leave you breathless!

Doug Bradley Wants To Play Pinhead Again In A ‘The Scarlet Gospels’ Movie Adaptation

Published

on

This is exciting news for fans of the actor and the franchise. In an exclusive interview with Bloody Disgusting, Doug Bradley says, I certainly never say never. I’ve never said I was done with it. Check out more of what he says in the interview below.

Movie Scene from Hellraiser (1987)

Doug Bradley says, “I certainly never say never. I’ve never said I was done with it. I’ve never said I’m retired from it. I’m sensible about these things, too. I was in my mid-30s when I first played the character, and I was just turning 50 when I played him the last time. I ain’t in that age range anymore. I’m now in my 70th year, and to some extent, I think special effects makeup is a younger man’s game.”

Then, when talking about a movie adaptation of The Scarlet Gospels, he says “If we did that, we could maybe present an older Pinhead to be aware of the fact that I am the age I am, that time and gravity does what time and gravity does. An older, darker Pinhead would intrigue me, one not so much in love with the flippant one-liners and the witty comebacks and so forth.”

Deleted Scene from Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 (1988)

The Scarlet Gospels is a novel written by Clive Barker that was published in 2015. It served as a continuation of his novel The Hellbound Heart and the Harry D’Amour stories. The book followed the story of the Hell Priest, the demonic Cenobite nicknamed “Pinhead”, and his efforts to gain power. Occult detective Harry D’Amour must journey into Hell to rescue his friend and stop the Hell Priest’s plans.”

While Bradley does state he is too old for the role, The Scarlet Gospels follows an older pinhead which would work perfectly for the actor. Are you excited about the news of him playing the character again if this adaptation happens? Let us know in the comments below.
