From master of horror Dario Argento (Suspiria, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) comes Phenomena - one of his most eccentric and unique thrillers, featuring telepathic insects, maggots galore, and even a razorwielding chimp!

Jennifer Corvino (Jennifer Connelly, Labyrinth), daughter of a worldrenowned movie star, arrives in the socalled "Swiss Transylvania" to attend an exclusive girls' school. However, a vicious killer is targeting the pupils, and sleepwalker Jennifer finds herself in the assassin's headlights when her nocturnal wanderings cause her to witness the death of a fellow pupil. Aided by paraplegic entomologist John McGregor (Donald Pleasence, Halloween) and her own uncanny ability to communicate telepathically with insects, Jennifer sets out to track down the killer before she herself becomes the latest victim...

Released in 1985, towards the end of Argento's decadelong golden age as a director, Phenomena co-stars Dalila Di Lazarro (The Pyjama Girl Case), Patrick Bauchau (Clear and Present Danger) and Daria Nicolodi (Tenebrae), and features lush cinematography by Romano Albani (Inferno) and a pounding prog rock score by Goblin (Deep Red, Suspiria).

Presenting all three versions of the film - including the radically different "Creepers" cut released in the US - in a sumptuous new 4K restoration, this is the definitive release of Argento's creepy classic.

Phenomena is released as a 4K limited edition 28th February 2022 from Arrow Video.
