November 5, 2008 More exciting news on the Blu-Ray front! Dario Argento's groundbreaking giallo classic "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage" is going to strike Blu-Ray courtesy of Blue Underground.
The film is striking Blu-Ray February 24. This is one of Argento's best films and is far more mystery than horror.
