USA Giallo Essentials Volume 3 (Black Edition) - July 26, 2022

Warning: The release of Smiles Before Death includes a 23-minute interview in italian without English Subtitles. Arrow's producer suggests to contact their customer service to get a replacement disc, but no replacement disc appears to exist. Please check the latest posts for any recent updates.

Update (9/29): Corrected discs are out there. There are new reports of people receiving a corrected disc when ordering direct from Arrow in the US/UK, from contacting Arrow's customer service, and at a local store in the UK.

  • Original lossless mono Italian and English soundtracks on Smile Before Death and The Killer Reserved Nine Seats
  • Original lossless mono Italian soundtrack on The Weapon, the Hour, the Motive
  • English subtitles for the Italian soundtracks
  • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing for the English soundtracks
  • Rigid box packaging with original poster artwork in a windowed Giallo Essentials Collection slipcover
  • Reversible sleeves for each film featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Adam Rabalais, Peter Strain and Haunt Love
