Dario Argento’s Tenebrae 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray Out July 2022 – Cult Classic!

There’s some really good blu-ray releases out this this month. Arrow Video are continuing their 4K versions of Dario Argento films. Next up is Tenebrae 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray which releases on the 18th July 2022 in the UK.

I reviewed the previous Tenebrae blu-ray release by Arrow Video and found it to have overall pretty good picture quality but did have a few issues.

Hopefully this new 4K restoration release will take the film to another level.
