The highly anticipated restoration of SUSPIRIA in an Exclusive Synapse Films Limited Steelbook is now available for advance pre-order! Please note that this info is very early and specs and final extras have not been finalized. Due to it's popularity, it's believed that this item will sell quite a bit faster than previous Steelbook releases, so now is your chance to "lock-in" your pre-order now. Final street date is still pending but is expected to be released before the end of the year for the 40th Anniversary. Synapse's goal is to start shipping sometime in mid-late November, but this is subject to change. As the extras and final specs come in, Synapse will update the website listing accordingly at http://synapse-films.com/dvds/suspiria-40th-anniversary-limited-edition-steelbook/
Like their previous Limited Collector's Edition Steelbook release, Synapse Films personally and securely wraps/packs/insures and ships each and every Steelbook individually with additional packing necessary to keep it safe on its way to your mailing location. Synapse even hand delivers them to the post office. The price of the SUSPIRIA Limited Edition Steelbook is $43.95 + $6.00 for the additional handling/packing fee. Those who would like to save the $6.00 and pick it up direct from their office can certainly do so. Please call the office at 734-494-3502 to place your order for pick up and they will reserve yours so it's ready to be picked up when it's released!
As with their previous Steelbook releases, all copies will go out in the order they were received via USPS, so if you order yours today you will be one of the first to receive a copy. Synapse Films is unable to provide tracking information, but all orders are insured. Please note that all orders will be charged when orders are placed and not shipped.
Synapse Films is only accepting orders for shipping within North America. Those of you looking to purchase this item outside of North America can contact DiabolikDVD.com.
As of right now, there is no plans for a non-Steelbook release. The SUSPIRIA set will include two Blu-rays + 1 CD. The film will be on its own Blu-ray disc, to maximize the quality for both picture and sound, with most extra features being on a separate Blu-ray. The set will be Region A locked.
