One step ahead of the police, but always right behind the killer, Peter manages to piece together clue after clue until the final, shocking showdown with the bloodthirsty killer. Released in the shadows of Dario Argento’s wildly successful The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (and one of over 30 Italian giallo films produced in 1972), The Crimes of the Black Cat delivers the style of a classic giallo with sleazy, over the top violence that rivals Italian films from a decade later. Despite its pedigree of talent including Sylva Koscina (Lisa and the Devil), Renato De Carmine (Challenge to White Fang), Giacomo Rossi Stuart (Death Smiles at a Murderer, Shanghai Joe), Umberto Raho (Amuck, Summertime Killer), and Annabella Incontrera (The Case of the Blood Iris), an eerie score by Manuel De Sica (Dellamorte Dellamore), and behind the scenes work from Fabrizio De Angelis (producer of Zombie, The Beyond) The Crimes of the Black Cat has been largely ignored on home video. Previously unavailable in HD or in the proper aspect ratio, The Crimes of the Black Cat makes its worldwide Blu-Ray debut with an uncut 4K restoration via Cauldron Films. Bonus features include: Commentary track with Fragments of Fear – A Giallo Podcast with Peter Jilmstad and Rachael Nisbet, English SDH Subtitles , Image Gallery, Trailer, Commentary by Troy Howarth and Nathaniel Thompson, Remembering Sergio Pastore – Interview with Sara Pastore, Sergio Pastore – Un Ammirevole Indipendente

Beyond Terror (Más allá del terror) is a lost gem that is long overdue for rediscovery.
