Dario Argento's 'Door into Darkness' Gets U.S. DVD Release   

October 25, 2008 New U.S. horror/cult label Mya Communications has announced that Dario Argento's "Door into Darkness" is finally getting a much-needed DVD release. They're also unleashing Lucio Fulci's 1964 film "The Maniacs."

"Door Into Darkness" is a collection of "Masters of Horror"-like TV episodes from the '70s. It's four spine tingling episodes directed and presented by the undisputed master of horror. Originally made in 1973 for Italian television, Door Into Darkness was highly controversial at the time for it’s deliberate breaking of the level of admitted TV violence.
Extras include "Dario Argento - Master of Horror" (83 min., available in English and Italian languages). Vintage documentary directed by Luigi Cozzi (aka Lewis Coates) in which Argento digs deep into his obsessions, dreams and talks candidly about his work.

Meanwhile, Lucio Fulci's “The Manicas” is a brilliant portrait of the Italian society of the sixties. The film is divided in several segments, each one devoted to a particular mania, with a special attention to the sexual ones. This anthology is filled with popular Italian comedians, Walter Chiari, Raimondo Vianello, Franco Franchi & Ciccio Ingrassia and many others, along with international performers such as Lisa Gastoni, Gaia Germani and Umberto d’Orsi.
