    I like the film, but not 37 Euros worth of like.

    I'm hoping there will be a cheaper release soon after, maybe just a blu omitting the 4K and DVD's.

    A lot of the time these releases drop down to about half that price. You have to follow up on a regular basis though because Amazon changes prices all the time.

    You gotta watch when the stock goes low sometimes with these Koch Mediabooks however, as sometimes they just go OOP very suddenly. The Dead Zone Mediabook sold out fairly fast, even though it wasn't really ever stated it was a limited title. Koch have still never released a standard Blu-ray for that one over a year later.

    Funny you should mention that one, because Dead Zone is one of the films I liked enough to pony up the cost of the Koch release.

    Already know the price wait game, but also already know the even more important "blink and its gone" release game, particularly with European releases. Had a couple German edition disks of spaghetti westerns vanish when I was playing the waiting game. Not a particularly big deal as I didn't care that much, was in the "get it cheaper or don't bother" mood. But I've long ago learned if you want it, get it early. Several Powerhouse Films, Eureka, and Arrow sets (Harryhausen, Night of the Demon, Phantasm, The Thing, etc etc) didn't exactly stick around.

    Any idea what their source elements were?

    Shout was just based on an old master.

    The new German 4K & Blu-ray discs are from the original 16mm negatives.

    That’s what I thought, which is strange because they were MIA when Shout released that. Where were they rediscovered?

    I’m going to sell off my Shout disc immediately before a domestic release is announced.

    No idea to be honest... I read somewhere that Neil Marshall had "located the negatives" (after this release was already up for pre-order) but no further details were given.

    I never even bothered with the Shout release, but the German set did ship the other day from Amazon.de

    Yeah, even the old VHS and DVD looks way better than that crap.
    The contrast is so overblown it´s insane.
    Shout should be ashamed of themselves for releasing that shit.
