Arrow Video, with domestic sales and distribution expertise provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has tabbed Jan. 9, 2018 as the street date for a new 4K restoration (from the original camera negative) of writer/director Dario Argento’s 1971 giallo horror/mystery, The Cat O’ Nine Tails.
Franco Arnò (played by Karl Malden), a blind man, teams with an inquisitive reporter by the name of Carlo Giordani (James Franciscus), to unravel a series of murders that seem connected to research at the Terzi Institute. Who is the killer? And why?
As with the good giallo films of the period, The Cat O’ Nine Tails is a nifty blend of horror and mystery. Stylish murders and with a purpose!
Bonus goodies include a newly-prepared commentary by critics Alan Jones and Kim Newman and new series of video sessions with filmmaker Dario Argento, co-writer Dardano Sacchetti, actress Cinzia De Carolis (as Lori, Karl Malden’s niece in the film) and production manager Angelo Iacono.
Arrow Video is presenting The Cat O’ Nine Tails in both the original Italian-language version (with English subtitles) and the English-dubbed theatrical version.
