Exclamation Dario Argento's Four Flies on Grey Velvet coming from Shameless in January!

This is great news!

Argento giallo Four Flies on Grey Velvet is due on blu from Shameless come January 30th 2012. Love this film!

To mark the Fortieth Anniversary of its production, and twenty years after the film disappeared from the public eye, Shameless Screen Entertainment are aiming to release the first ever worldwide Blu-ray of Dario Argento’s Four Flies on Grey Velvet – remastered in HD from the original negative by the original lab.

It’s all a-buzz at Shameless! After two years of behind the scene negotiations via their “Italian connection”, Shameless Screen Entertainment is proud to announce that they will soon release the missing Argento opus: Four Flies on Grey Velvet – or, fact fans, what more accurately should be called Four Flies of Grey Velvet – as per the literal translation of Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio.

It doesn’t stop there, Shameless have put their investigative caps on and - pending the availability of the original filmmaking team - they intend to discover for their fans what really happened to Dario Argento’s “lost” film...

Four Flies on Grey Velvet will be released on Blu-ray and DVD by Shameless Screen Entertainment on 30 January 2012.
Be interesting to see what extras make it in, and let's hope the master is up to snuff of course - but it's got to be a 'must purchase' for sure!

Could be worth it what with the R1 DVD, from Mya (Bootleg disc?), having a major pitch problem on the soundtrack.
By the sounds of it, Mya have sourced their English track from the unauthorised 2007 German release by Retrofilm, which is of poor quality, suffering from an inordinate amount of background noise, warble and other associated artefacts. More problematically, however, the pitch has been messed up. Everything is a good couple of semitones too low, meaning that women now sound like gruffly-spoken men and men sound like Don LaFontaine. Perhaps even worse, Ennio Morricone’s lyrical score has been butchered by the pitch change and now sounds like it’s being played back on an old cassette tape recorder that needs the batteries changed.

There's a thread on AVManiacs on this release.
