Since our inception, Vinegar Syndrome, through our sister lab, OCN Digital Labs, has had the honor of working on dozens of restorations for some of the best home video distributors in the business. The films in this section represent a sampling of titles on which we did some combination of scanning, restoration or color correction.
American mystery author Peter Neal (Anthony Franciosa) comes to Italy to promote his newest novel, TENEBRAE. Unfortunately, a razor-wielding serial killer 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! Featuring an amazing synth-music score from Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli and Massimo Morante (formerly of Italian progressive-rock band, Goblin), this all-new 1080p high-definition TENEBRAE release was created from the original uncut camera negative. Also stars John Saxon (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET), Daria Nicolodi (Dario Argento’s PHENOMENA) and John Steiner (CALIGULA).
(PLEASE NOTE: This is a single disc BLU-RAY release and does not contain the same materials as the Limited Edition Collectible Steelbook(R) Edition of TENEBRAE from Synapse Films. This version does not come in the collectible Steelbook(R) packaging, does not contain the additional DVD format version, the CD soundtrack, or the collectible booklet. If you would like to get the Limited Steelbook(R) version of TENEBRAE that contains these additional materials, you will need to call our office at 734-494-3502 to place your order. Because quantities are now so low on the Steelbook(R) release, we have removed it from our website. At last inventory, we only had around 100 units left of this edition. Call now, if you really want the Limited Steelbook(R) version.)
