Sleepless (2001) Blu-ray: Suspenseful Giallo from Argento

Scorpion Releasing presents director Dario Argento’s stylish giallo, Sleepless (2001) on Blu-ray. Stars Max von Sydow.

Dario Argento (Suspiria; Phantom of the Opera) brings us a chilling giallo film like only the true master can. A series of grisly murders in the city match the work of a serial killer who appears to have escaped the authorities and disappeared without a trace seventeen years earlier. A retired police detective (Max von Sydow — The Exorcist; Flash Gordon) who is familiar with the case comes out of retirement to catch the killer. Beautifully shot by Ronnie Taylor (Sea of Love) with a wonderful score by Goblin (The Church). The stellar cast includes Chiara Caselli (My Own Private Idaho) and Rossella Falk (Modesty Blaise).
