The original Australian SUSPIRIA Blu-ray release was too bright imo.
I also have both. That problem with the previous master appeared on other country's Blu-rays as well. The new 4K transfer Blu-ray stabs it in the heart and drops it through a glass floor.

Has anyone with a Region A player had any issue playing any of the extras? I see some of them are in 576i and 1080i 60Hz. I know people have had issues with the Not Quite Hollywood disc, so curious if this may run into the same issues.

No problems at all. I use an LG BP-175 (Region A) and every feature on this disc is accessible.
If you knew what AT&T did to my husband, you would hate them, too.

You guys need to look at the US Synapse release. It craps all over the TLE version.
The previous Oz release was too bright but only in some places, overall its better than the TLE version you're now stuck with.

However, either of the Australian releases are an essential add on for fans of the movie in order to get the best selection of bonus features

Possibly.
One presents the film as it has appeared on every home video release for 35 years but with image imperfections corrected and with the bonus of the original 4 track sound.
The other offers up a very subdued version where the image is dull in comparison.

I would suggest anyone who is happy with the TLE version would either be quite new to the film and not familiar with how its always looked or hasn't actually seen the Synapse version at all.

There doesn't seem to be too many people who have seen both versions but of those who have I've seen only 2 who prefer TLE although one of those said he liked the way it looked because he thought it was the way a film would have looked in 1977, forgetting that it was the OTT visual quality of the movie that made people sit up and take notice.

I have the earlier Oz Bluray but even with its overblown almost whiteout moments its closer to how the film has always looked than the new Oz bluray

I have both Australian Blu-ray releases of SUSPIRIA, the Limited Edition ANCHOR BAY 3-disc DVD set with soundtrack and the SYNAPSE 40th anniversary restoration release - also with soundtrack.

Plus, Dario Argentoís World of Horror documentary - particularly of interest for the scarce behind-the-scenes footage from SUSPIRIA.

Iím well covered for audio options and bonus features with these editions.

I may get the UK release for the 50 minutes TLE restoration feature?

A 4K release of the restoration by SYNAPSE is what Iím waiting for now.

The only one of those I don't have is the new Oz Blu.
As I had the individual Argentos World of Horror dvd (which must be getting on for 20 years old now) it didn't seem necessary to buy the reissue.

I've held off on getting the UK version as I backed the Indiegogo campaign.
I sold both of the Italian releases. The Italian Blu was dreadful as it has TLE video but poor audio. The Italian UHD added the 2 channel surround track that rescued the UK Blu.

Having had imperfect versions of the film for 20 years since the LD was put out to pasture the Synapse lifted a weight off my shoulders. It always bugged me that one of my favourite films still wasn't right.

The 3 year fiasco of the Synapse restoration was enough to try the patience of a saint but when it finally arrived it did deliver what it promised.

Seems unfair that only the US gets that version while the rest of the world gets a version that makes Suspiria look ordinary which is one thing it isn't

Ditto on the Synapse UHD. Really hope that happens

Am I right in thinking you've not seen the Synapse version?
And rather than being concerned about Oz fans losing out I'm more concerned that the reputation of the film itself will suffer if the TLE version is what most of the world sees long term

Yep, throwing my Italian TLE sourced version blu-ray in the bin right now.

After careful consideration of information obtained from anonymous movie watching 'experts' in a public movie forum thread, Suspiria's reputation, absolutely damaged beyond watchability as far as I'm concerned. Forever!

Thanks TLE version, you apparently colour insensitive bastards.

I bet Argento is rolling over in his grave about this.

I have seen both restorations, and Umbrella's recent release looks far better to me than the Synapse version. For what it's worth, the bonus features on the Umbrella disc are superior as well. Last but not least, Umbrella's release is more affordable and isn't a "limited edition". Yes, Synapse is releasing a regular edition this month, but it is still more expensive. And, they flat-out lied last year when they said "we have no plans to release a regular release". If you prefer the Synapse version, good for you. Personally, I think it's good to have options.

My problem with the Synapse is the strong saturation and contrast boost,
the movie looks very digitized,

it doesnt look bad at all please, just too "toiled with"

TLE has a more film-like-from the 70s look with vibrant colors and clarity.
Is my favorite look so far,

the audio in the Synapse is amazing, I understand the UK disc has a
very potent and clear 2.0 audio transfer too.

I agree. It's Dario Argento's Suspiria, but the Synapse disc looks like Dreamworks Animation's Suspiria.

Clearly Australians don't really have much of a clue about how Suspiria has always looked.
And summed up no better than the post above which makes the same mistake as someone also did before in thinking for some reason that just because Suspiria was made in 1977 it should look like a film made in the 70's - totally oblivious to the obvious that one of the reasons the film stood out is because of the way it looked. Which wasn't like a film from the 70's.

While you sit back and watch your low brightness low contrast film from the 70's ask yourself why the TLE version you seem to enjoy looks like no other home video version of the movie ever released before anywhere in the world.

At least one posters opinion has some merit in that they've seen both versions (unless you have your opinion is worthless) so that now makes a total of 3.

As the Synapse version is the closest we have to ALL previous home video versions it seems safe to assume that the Synapse/TLE versions are the first time you've ever seen the movie as you clearly don't have any idea about how the film has looked for the last 35 years

You really are a novice in this game aren't you?
Synapse have said that about every Limited Edition release they've ever done. Nobody believed them then so who would believe them now.
When the LE version is about to be released they likely don't have immediate plans to do a standard version but only a fool would genuinely believe one would never appear.
This one has appeared a bit quicker than earlier releases
