Totally uncut for the first time ever!

A retired detective, Moretti (Max Von Sydow) is asked to assist in the investigation of a series of murders that bear all the signs of a case that he worked upon 17 years ago. The "Dwarf Murders" included the violent death of the mother of Giacomo (Stefano Dionisi) who's killer Moretti had promised to find. Giacomo returns to Torino and stays with his friend Lorenzo (Roberto Zibetti). When the killer strikes again, Moretti finally decides to help and together with Giacomo starts to try and unravel the mystery thus fulfilling his promise from years before.

This yet again is another amazing Dario Argento film, one of the best psycho killer films ever made, loads of visual style and creative camera work, lots of gore and bloody violence! The story follows a retired detective and a victim of previous murders help police try to solve more murders when a ghost from the past comes back!! If your a big Argento fan this is a must, all time classic with a great cast and amazing practical gore effects and visual style.

This is certainly Argento on form with lots of murder, suspense, blood, reds and blues plus music by Goblin (which fits in perfectly unlike Keith Emmerson's "Inferno" soundtrack). As the case review says it incorporates many familiar things from his earlier films such as lots of knives, blood and pretty young women (usually being murdered).

Set in Turin in 1983, the film features the great Max Von Sydow as retired cop Moretti who helps look for a killer who appears to have returned to his trade after a lengthy 17 year lay-off. Was he in prison or killing in other places without the murders being linked? I won't spoil it by saying any more.

Track down the 2 disc SE with what appears to be the same extras (making of, an hour long Argento feature "An Eye for Horror", stills galleries, Argento bio and filmography). Though they seem spread a bit thinly over 2 discs and could fit onto a single (as in on this disc) it's cheaper and with 2 discs perceived as well as real better value. Oh and you get a better cover than the crap cartoon one here.

The film is real edge-of-seat material unlike the earlier Argento murder mystery "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage". The only minor irritation in or criticism of it are the constant reverse cuts in the train scene (one minute the train is travelling left to right, the next minute right to left, as if it's changed direction). Reverse cuts totally interrupt the flow, are off-putting to the viewer and really shouldn't be there. There are no complaints about the picture or sound quality.

Brilliant film from the Italian master of horror Dario Argento. I have already have the 2xdisc, but I have ordered this dvd because of the extras. The description says totally uncut for the first time ever...no. The 2xdisc dvd before was uncut anyway.
But at a great price, it's great value for money.
If you want an excellent horror that is in no way like an American horror, especially family-friendly, buy this.
I have all Argento's films on dvd and this was his return to the horror thriller since The Stendahl Syndrome. Fast paced, twists, gory and overall an entertaining horor. Recommended!
