We broke the news yesterday about Synapse Films’ upcoming new special-edition DVDs and Blu-rays of Lamberto
Bava’s DEMONS and DEMONS 2 and Dario Argento’s TENEBRE and PHENOMENA, and now
we’ve got exclusive info on the supplements accompanying the DEMONS films, and
pics from those features.
Calum Waddell of High Rising Productions, who’s producing
those extras, let us know what to look forward to: “We have some really meaty
stuff—lengthy interviews and in-depth personality profiles,” he tells Fango.
“The kind of material that we hope people expect from High Rising by now! We
have brand new interviews on DEMONS with [1st through 4th photos below]
Lamberto Bava, Dario Argento, stuntman Ottaviano Dell’Acqua, Alan Jones, the
worldwide authority on all things Argento-related, and Luigi Cozzi, who
contextualizes the DEMONS films and speaks about the unofficial
sequels—including how his own movie THE BLACK CAT ended up as DEMONS 6 in some
territories! For DEMONS 2, we have Lamberto again, composer Simon Boswell [5th
photo below], assistant director Roy Bava, effects maestro Sergio Stivaletti
and Federico Zampaglione, the new blood of Italian horror [director of SHADOW
and the upcoming TULPA], chatting about DEMONS and how it has inspired him.
“It’s great to be working on these two Italian classics,
especially since Lamberto has become a dear friend to Naomi [Holwill of High
Rising] and I over the past six years. I first became acquainted with him after
bringing him to Manchester for a film festival, and we’ve stayed in touch ever
since. To be giving his movies this sort of treatment is amazing—and he gave us
both a huge hug when he found out we were working on them! I guess he was aware
they were in friendly hands!”
Meanwhile, High Rising’s documentary SLICE AND DICE: THE
SLASHER FILM FOREVER (which we last reported on here)
will be screening on Sunday, March 24 at the Glasgow Film Theatre in Scotland.
“We’ll have special guests James Moran and Norman J. Warren, as well as Naomi
and myself,” Waddell says. “Tickets will be on sale soon at the GFT website.”
