Doppelgänger Releasing and Scorpion Releasing continue their ongoing collaboration on re-issuing Italian genre films of the Seventies and Eighties with a restored version of the 1978 giallo ENIGMA ROSSO. Directed by Alberto Negrin and starring Italian cult superstar Fabio Testi (a Golden Globe-winner for The Garden of the Finzi-Continis), the chilling mystery concerns a detective’s investigation into the savage assault and murder of a schoolgirl and the subsequent stalking of her classmates at their private school. 

ENIGMA ROSSO makes its North American Blu-ray debut remastered in high definition transfer via a brand new scan of the original negatives, with extensive color correction executed in the U.S.

ENIGMA ROSSO begins when the brutally violated body of a young woman is dragged from the river. The investigating law officer, Inspector Gianni Di Salvo (Testi), is drawn to dark deeds at an exclusive girls’ school where the beautiful members of a group known as “The Inseparables” are being targeted with sinister letters and murder attempts. Following a clue in the dead girl’s diary, Di Salvo meets an unlikely ally in the form of the victim’s young sister, and as the pair begins to put the pieces together, he realizes that the school’s web of sex and homicide is more tangled then he ever could have imagined.

A prime slice of sordid shocks from the golden age of the Italian giallo, ENIGMA ROSSO is the final film in a trilogy of schoolgirl thrillers following Massimo Dallamano’s What Have You Done to Solange? (1972) and What Have They Done to Your Daughters? (1974). And, like all giallo entries, it comes complete with the genre’s requisite plot twists, psychological terror, startling violence and stylized eroticism.

Co-starring Christine Kaufmann (Town Without Pity), Ivan Desny (The Marriage of Maria Braun), Jack Taylor (Succubus), and Helga Liné (Horror Express), ENIGMA ROSSO also features a memorable score by the late Golden Globe-winning as well as Oscar and Grammy-nominated composer Riz Ortolani (The Yellow Rolls-Royce, Kill Bill: Vol 1), who amassed more than 200 feature film credits in his prolific 50-year-plus career.

Doppelgänger Releasing and Scorpion Releasing will release ENIGMA ROSSO on Blu-ray for the first time in the United States on April 10, 2018 (prebook March 6, 2018). The Blu-ray, which includes an audio commentary by film historian Nathaniel Thompson, carries the suggested retail price of $29.95.
