A while back I wrote an article about this stunning Suspiria 4K remaster from Synapse Films. At the time I had no idea what the release date was other than a vague "December 2017". That changes today as I have learned that the 3-disc limited edition Blu-ray will release on December 19th! Just in time to fill your Christmas with some giallo cheer! Pre-order now from Synapse Films.
