DARIO ARGENTO’S PHENOMENA COMES TO BLU-RAY SEPTEMBER 12th FROM SYNAPSE FILMS

A 2-DISC SPECIAL EDITION OF DARIO ARGENTO’S HORROR CLASSIC WITH ALL 3 VERSIONS IN ONE SET!

“A+ It should go without saying, but this Blu-ray release is definitely recommended and a major must-own for your collection.” – The Digital Bits

The young Jennifer Corvino (played by Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Connelly, in one of her first film roles) is sent to a private Swiss academy for girls where a vicious killer is on the loose, brutally murdering students. Jennifer is a “gifted” girl with the strange ability to communicate with insects, and Dr. McGregor (Donald Pleasence, John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN series, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK) enlists her to help locate the killer. Jennifer finds herself in a bizarre murder plot with maggots, mutants, and razor-wielding chimpanzee mayhem! Can she uncover the killer’s identity before becoming a victim herself? Daria Nicolodi (TENEBRAE) and Fiore Argento (DEMONS) also star in this strange, unique and gory film from Italy’s Master of Horror, Dario Argento. PHENOMENA also features fantastic soundtrack music from progressive-rock favorite Goblin, British Heavy Metal masters Motörhead & Iron Maiden, Andi Sex Gang, Bill Wyman and Simon Boswell!
