Dope. Not my favorite Argento flick but I bet that movie looks stellar in 4k.

The recent 4K restoration is already on blu-ray and it looks amazing. I'm sure this will look even better owing to the full resolution and added color depth.

As it is the existing blu-ray is one of the best looking discs in my collection, 4k or otherwise.

I was gonna say that I thought this had been released because I already own a copy.

But this on a 55-inch TV with surround sound cranked all the way up is heavenly.

Possibly the most hauntingly perfect score in horror film history by Goblin. That main theme......damn

The most (purposely) beautiful horror movie of all time. I can't wait to see how this turns out in 4K.

Yeah, the recent Blu-Ray already made the visuals really pop:







So this should be good.

The Synapse blu ray of this is the BEST the film has ever looked on home video, by far, it's easily one of my stand out blu rays, such vivid colors and a clean picture.

The audio was amazing too, especially the Original 4.0 LCRS sound mix, which was simply breathtaking to listen to. Far better then the 5.1 mix and others we had til then, it was just so damn dynamic. Going to be interesting to see how the Atmos mix is compared to that.

I think some people are confused because the blu ray is a 4k remaster (the same remaster they are using for this) but it is only 1080p, not 4k. This is tihe true 4k release of the 4k remaster.

Man, so many mediocre releases of Suspiria over the years, until Synapse finally released a good one... only for a 4K release to quickly follow. It almost seems designed to bleed fans dry.

Still, it's a film that does deserve the 4K treatment.
