Re: Blue Underground and Synapse Films to release on Blu-ray

Synapse Films are working with the original Cinematographer of Suspiria, Luciana Tovoli on their restoration.

IMO, totally worth the wait.

Other forums will still find things to complain about.

I'm not saying everyone on Blu-ray.com is a fucking idiot (most are), but that specific Suspiria thread is like venturing into The_Donald sub on Reddit.

Don May, Jr. has been in this industry for nearly three decades and has never released a restoration that wasn't less than stellar. I realize most of them were not around during the DVD (or Laserdisc) era so they're not familiar with his work prior to Synapse. With that being said, I expect nothing less here, especially with how Suspiria has always been his "bucket list" restoration.

It's a shame the rights holders didn't give him access to the original film elements to Phenomena since that might be Arrow's first release that trumps the Synapse equivalent.

Re: Blue Underground and Synapse Films to release on Blu-ray

It would've been nice if there were a UHD BD tucked in there too, but I locked in my preorder just the same. I'm sure it'll be a stronger presentation than the Italian UHD BD release.

Not a big surprise, but it look like the Blue Underground extras aren't coming over. Oh well.

On Thursday, we detailed the four-year-long quest by Synapse Films to restore Dario Argento’s horror classic, Suspiria. But, in chronological terms, that pales in comparison to the time genre fans have been waiting for the company to release the 1987 creature feature, The Kindred.

“About ten years ago, we announced The Kindred,” says Synapse Films President Donald May Jr. “We had purchased it and it got entangled in a horrible legal battle. It was no fault of ours, we just had to hold tight until everything was finalized.”

And what is the situation now?

“You know what? It’s Entertainment Weekly — I will let you guys know, you’re the first to hear about it,” says May. “Almost ten years later, I can now say that, yes, we are doing The Kindred, finally, for 2018. While we didn’t spend four years restoring it, it took us ten years to get out of all the legal mess to finally announce it again, ten years later. I could probably write a book as to what happened with The Kindred. [Laughs] We’ll do The Kindred on Blu-ray and DVD, because honestly it’s never been legally available on Blu-ray or DVD in the U.S. So, we’ll be the first company to actually release it.”

Directed by Stephen Carpenter and Jeffrey Obrow, The Kindred stars David Allen Brooks as a man who discovers he has a “brother,” the monstrous result of an experiment conducted by his scientist mother. Mayhem, unsurprisingly, ensues, in a film whose cast also features Rod Steiger, Amanda Pays, and Kim Hunter.

“It’s awesome, it’s really fun,” May says of the movie. “It was done at the tail-end of the era when everything was practical. So, you have practical effects with the creatures being made out of latex, with blood that’s made out of Karo Syrup, or whatever. There’s no computer effects in the film and that’s what we love about it. It’s a creature feature with practical gore and some really amazing prosthetic effects. I can also say that our version of The Kindred actually has more gore in it than the original U.S. version had. We ended up finding material which has extra gore which hasn’t been released here. You might think, Well, it’s a fairly unknown movie that doesn’t quite have the cachet of something like Suspiria. But we like to treat all the films that we do with the same type of respect. So, we’re doing The Kindred for next year and hopefully we’ll have a lot of extras for it.”
