Arrow bring on the extras for PHENOMENA and ISLAND OF DEATH
Whilst Josh has already picked up on these great new releases from Arrow in March there's now some more detail available on the extras to be included - and it's looking like another two typically comprehensive packages... The blu-ray of Phenomena, in particular, is truly mouth-watering.

"Phenomena Special Features

Four panel reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork; two sided fold out poster with new art work; exclusive collector's booklet featuring brand new writing on Phenomena by Alan Jones, author of Profondo Argento; high definition transfer of the Italian cut of the film; original English* & Italian stereo audio; brand new subtitle translation of the Italian and optional English subtitles of the English audio; "Dario's Monkey Business: The Making of Phenomena" - a 50-minute long documentary featuring interviews with key talent behind the film including director Dario Argento, star Daria Nicolodi, underwater photographer Gianlorenzo Battaglia and more; "Music for Maggots" - an Interview with composer with Claudio Simonetti; "Creepers for Creatures" - Sergio Stivaletti lives Q&A sessions from Dublin and Edinburgh.

*The English Audio track has some portions of English audio missing. This was either never recorded or has been lost. Scenes without English audio automatically revert to the Italian audio with English subtitles.

Island of Death Special Features

Brand new audio commentary with director Nico Mastorakis and author and critic Calum Waddell; Q&A with director Nico Mastorakis; interview with Nico Mastorakis; original trailer; The Music of Island of Death; 2010 re-recording of "Destination Understanding" from "Island of Death"; double-sided fold-out poster; collector's booklet featuring brand new writing on the film by critic David Hayles; brand new transfer of the film; original mono audio."

Phenomena will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 7th March 2011 and Island Of Death will be released on DVD on 21st March 2011, both from Arrow Video.

I guess they're just never going to get Jennifer Connolly to talk about this movie.

Seems like since she became a super-skinny Oscar-winner she's too good to talk about working with the maestro.

Agreed, it's a sad omission...

I remember seeing her on a talk show a few years back where she talked and laughed a bit about her role in Creepers. It might have been Conan, but I can't find a link to the interview. Either way... I don't think she's opposed to talking about the film. She's probably just too busy.
I agree though, that it would have been great to hear a commentary from her.

Or maybe she's just like: "Look, I was a kid. I don't remember any of it.'
