Plot Synopsis:

 

Synapse Films, in conjunction with Arrow Films, brings one of Italian filmmaker Dario Argento’s most shocking and fantastic films to 4K UHD in the U.S. in an amazing new limited edition! Released in the U.S. as Creepers by New Line Cinema, 1985’s Phenomena has long been one of Argento’s most discussed and debated films by fans and scholars.

The young Jennifer Corvino (played by Oscar-winner, Jennifer Connelly) is sent to a private Swiss academy for girls where a vicious killer is on the loose. Jennifer has the unique ability to telepathically communicate with insects and an entomologist, Dr. John McGregor (Donald Pleasence, John Carpenter’s Halloween; Escape from New York), enlists her help in locating the murderer. As the mystery unfolds, they find themselves in a bizarre murder plot with maggots, mutants and razor-wielding chimpanzee mayhem! Can Jennifer uncover the killer’s identity before becoming a victim herself?

Phenomena features a fantastic soundtrack from progressive-rock gods Goblin, British heavy metal masters Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Andi Sex Gang, Bill Wyman and Simon Boswell. Dalila Di Lazarro (Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein), Daria Nicolodi (Tenebrae), Patrick Bauchau (Clear and Present Danger) and Fiore Argento (Demons) also star in this truly unique, gory and unsettling thriller.

Synapse Films, in conjunction with Arrow Films, is proud to present Phenomena in a two-disc 4K UHD 6000 piece Limited Edition boxed set. Synapse Films will be releasing this set throughout North America in March 2022
