Following the success of his debut feature, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, distributor Titanus tasked writer/director Dario Argento with delivering a follow-up in short order. The resulting film, granted a greatly enhanced budget and heralded in its US marketing campaign as nine times more suspenseful than its predecessor, was The Cat O’ Nine Tails. When a break-in occurs at a secretive genetics institute, blind puzzle-maker Franco Arnò (Karl Malden, Patton, One-Eyed Jacks), who overheard an attempt to blackmail one of the institute’s scientists shortly before the robbery, teams up with intrepid reporter Carlo Giordani (James Franciscus, Beneath the Planet of the Apes) to crack the case. But before long the bodies begin to pile up and the two amateur sleuths find their own lives imperilled in their search for the truth. And worse still, Lori (Cinzia De Carolis, Cannibal Apocalypse), Franco’s young niece, may also be in the killer’s sights… This second entry in the so-called Animal Trilogy found Argento further refining his distinctive style and cementing his reputation as the master of the giallo thriller. Co-starring Catherine Spaak (Il Sorpasso) and Rada Rassimov (Baron Blood), and featuring another nerve-jangling score by the great Ennio Morricone (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly), The Cat O’ Nine Tails remains one of Argento’s most suspenseful and underrated films. Bonus features include: Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Candice Tripp, Original Italian and international theatrical trailers, Script pages for the lost original ending, translated into English for the first time, New interviews with co-writer/director Dario Argento, co-writer Dardano Sacchetti, actress Cinzia De Carolis and production manager Angelo Iacono, New audio commentary by critics Alan Jones and Kim Newman, Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing for the English soundtrack, Newly translated English subtitles for the Italian soundtrack, Original mono Italian and English soundtracks (lossless on the Blu-ray Disc), Brand new 4K restoration of the film from the original camera negative, High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations, Double-sided fold-out poster, 4 lobby card reproductions, Limited edition booklet illustrated by Matt Griffin, featuring an essay on the film by Dario Argento, and new writing by Barry Forshaw, Troy Howarth and Howard Hughes

L7: Pretend We’re Dead takes us on an all-access journey into the 1990’s grunge movement that took the world by storm, and the band that helped define it as the genre of a generation. Culled from over 100 hours of vintage home movies taken by the band, never-before-seen performance footage, and candid interviews, L7: Pretend We’re Dead is an engrossing time capsule told from the perspective of L7, these true insiders who brought their signature blend of grunge punk to the masses! Chronicling the early days of the band’s formation in 1985 to their height as the ‘queens of grunge,’ the film takes a roller coaster ride through L7’s triumphs and failures, providing never-before-discussed insight into the band’s eventual dissolution in 2001. Formed by Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner-guitars/vocals, the band completed their lineup with the addition of Jennifer Finch on bass/vocals and Dee Plakas on drums. To highlight the fact that L7 was an all-female group, however, was to miss the point. “Our fans couldn’t give a sh*t if we’re women,” Sparks says. “We did not set out to be an all-girl band. It just happened that way.” Yet the “gender issue” would return time and again for the band; from shock jocks refusing to play “chick rock” to academics accusing the band of “incorrectly” embracing their feminism to hard rock press implying the band was merely riding a wave of “grrl power” trendiness. Despite these obstacles, L7: Pretend We’re Dead shows the thread of influence the band had not only on rock and roll but on future generations of women everywhere and is, at the end, a testament to the pioneering spirit of a band that refuses to take anything lying down. “They can’t hear a word we said, when we pretend that we’re dead” Also includes the infamous 1997 documentary “L7 The Beauty Process” that was directed by Krist Novoselic.
