Dario Argento's masterpiece of terror - uncut, uncensored and newly remastered!

When beautiful police detective Anna Manni (Asia Argento) follows the bloody trail of a sophisticated serial murderer/rapist through the streets of Italy, the young woman falls victim to the bizarre "Stendhal Syndrome" - a hallucinatory phenomenon which causes her to lose her mind and memory in the presence of powerful works of art. Trapped in this twilight realm, Anna plunges deeper and deeper into sexual psychosis, until she comes to know the killer's madness more intimately than she ever imagined. 

Horror maestro Dario Argento (Suspiria) reaches new heights of florid fantasy and Grand Guignol with this warped work of art starring Maxim Magazine's "Sexiest Woman in the World" Asia Argento (Land of the Dead, XXX), Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong) and Marco Leonardi (Cinema Paradiso). Previously edited outside of Italy, Blue Underground proudly presents The Stendhal Syndrome in a gorgeous new 2K restoration from the original camera negative!
