Japan celebrates Deep Red's 35th Anniversary on Blu-ray

TC Entertainment is set to debut Dario Argento's classic, Profondo Rosso (Deep Red/Suspiria 2), on February 27th with a 2-Blu-ray set in Japan. Since the country falls into the same region as North America, South America, and Canada; there should be no issues with playback on even non-modded BD players. Tentative specs that appear to mostly match the content of Arrow Video's British Blu-ray are as follows:

  • 126 Minute Director's Cut (2.35:1 Widescreen)
  • - Italian Dolby TrueHD 5.1 (24-bit/96Hz)
    - English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 (24-bit/96Hz)
    - Japanese Dolby Digital 1.0 (Created for DVD)
    * English and Japanese subtitles

  • 105 Minute U.S. Theatrical Version (2.35:1 Widescreen)
  • - English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 (24-bit/96Hz)
    - Japanese Dolby Digital 1.0 (Created for the 1980 Tokyo Broadcasting System "Monday Roadshow" broadcast)
    * Japanese subtitles
