Arrow Video has followed up on their stellar release of Dario Argento’s The Bird with the Crystal Plumage with a beautiful restoration of his second giallo thriller, The Cat O’ Nine Tails.

The film’s beautiful cinematography and expert filmmaking qualities make it an integral addition to any film-lover’s home video collection.
