Overview

This Italian thriller delivering equal portions of sex and violence gets a careful presentation on DVD with this release from Blue Underground. The Case of the Bloody Iris (aka Perche quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer?) has been given a widescreen transfer to disc, letterboxed at 2.35:1 on conventional televisions and enhanced for anamorphic playback on 16x9 monitors. The source print looks quite good, the color balance reflects the look of early Seventies Eastmancolor with impressive accuracy, and the image is sharp and well detailed throughout. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, retaining the original monophonic sound mix, and the results sounds great. However, Blue Underground has only included a dubbed English sound track, with no option for the original Italian audio, and no subtitles appear on this release. As a bonus, this disc features the film's British trailer, an alternate version of one of the death scenes, and a filmography for director Anthony Ascott (aka Guiliano Carnimeo). Blue Underground's releases often feature a bit more in the way of additional features and language options, but this is still a better-than-average American release for a Italian giallo, and fans should be pleased with the presentation.
