I'm guessing this is one that arrow will be announcing later on this afternoon. Not usual for Amazon to jump the gun with the listing

Sigh.......another double dip. After Demons, I’m tempted to pick this up digitally as I’m more than happy with the extras package of the existing set. But will see in the official announcement what’s new........

Arrow on full frontal assault mode now lol

Anybody any idea what the diffference between these 2 is? Pic makes them look the same apart from a different poster for double the price.

Alternative cover option now available to pre-order at Arrow.
Limited to 1,000 copies.
Man.....that new artwork has me all a tizzy........

Thank god for reward points then! £9 is an easier double dip to stomach.........:love:

Cheers for the heads up squire! :smashin:

worth a blind buy?
Have you seen any other Argento’s?

Its a great pure giallo - it’s packed full of Argento’s stock brilliant camera moves, set pieces that go nowhere but are brilliantly constructed, red herrings and weird supporting characters, all serving a great mystery with a decent twist ending.

It’s no Suspiria or Deep Red but it’s a lovely watch so yeah, I’d say it’s a solid blind buy.


Yeah i own Tenebrae and Deep Red but never seen this one. Heard of it of course.

It’s much closer to Tenebrae so if you dig that, you’ll pretty much dig this. I say throw caution to the wind and jump on this like a tramp on a chip! :D
