Boutique startup announces its debut release,


bringing Giuliano Carnimeo’s beloved giallo


to 4K UHD for the first time







San Clemente, Calif., December 12, 2023 — Celluloid Dreams (www.celluloid-dreams.net) today announces the release date for its upcoming debut title “The Case of the Bloody Orchid.” Originally known as “Perchè Quelle Strane Gocce Di Sangue Sul Corpo Di Jennifer?,” the 1972 film is Italian director Giuliano Carnimeo’s only giallo, and it has since become a genre favorite. The film will be released on April 9th 2024 as a 2-disc combo containing a Blu-ray and 4K UHD version with a suggested retail price of $45.95


From a script by the master architect of giallo, Ernesto Gastaldi (THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH, ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK, DEATH WALKS ON HIGH HEELS), comes director Giuliano Carnimeo’s sexually-charged giallo debut (credited as Anthony Ascott), presented here, for the first time, in 4K ultra high definition anywhere. “The Case of the Bloody Orchid” features a brand new transfer of the movie, taken from the original camera negative that has been carefully color-graded and painstakingly restored for this release to bring out every detail in its beautiful cinematography.


The gruesome murders of two young women send a shockwave of fear through the tenants of a high-rise apartment building. For photo models Jennifer and Marylin, it presents a welcome opportunity to move in together in one of the emptied flats.


But the aura of terror catches up with everyone and soon, Jennifer feels like prey, stalked and targeted by the gloved killer. As her paranoia grows, Jennifer suspects everyone—her fanatic ex-husband, her spinster neighbor, the lesbian from down the hall, and even her boyfriend. But she is determined to stay one step ahead of the depraved killer!


Starring giallo’s ultimate scream queen, Edwige Fenech (STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER, HOSTEL: PART II), alongside George Hilton (THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH, THE CASE OF THE SCORPION’S TAIL) in their third collaboration together, “The Case of the Bloody Iris” is “pure giallo fun” (Mondo Digital). With its beautiful cinematography masterfully contrasted by its brutal violence, the film is every bit as exploitative and blood-spattered as it is sultry and salacious, turning it into “a luxuriant banquet of sumptuous visuals, sinister chills, and otherworldly beauty” (Deadshed).


A series of bonus features such as interview featurettes, a brand-new commentary track, an image gallery, newly transferred trailers, and more accompany the release. The movie is presented in its original Italian language with newly translated subtitles, as well as an English dub.

  • Reversible cover, featuring the original Italian and English title of the movie

Nice debut title. Not one of the best gialli but still worthy of an upgrade and boy did it need one. Blue Underground is too busy focusing on Jess Franco (ugh) I guess - they never bothered updating their DVD of this. Now there's one boutique label I no longer need to follow.
