    According to Gary sales who owns the rights to Madman the movie is getting a 4k restoration. Supposedly from the original negatives.

    Sweet!!!
    I hope they don´t fuck up the color timing, as on the transfer Code Red used.

    Very exciting. Yes, no more golden hue! But, I sure hope he's quicker about it getting this done than with his upcoming fan website www.madmanthemovie.com

    Sadly Don May was interested in doing a restoration on this years ago but could not deal with Gary.

    Yes! The loss of the blues was heartbreaking.

    It's not that I don't enjoy this film, but I can think of 100 other classic horror films that should probably get a 4k transfer before this one...

    True enough but I guess the difference is that the owner is taking initiative

    It wouldn't surprise me if that was somehow related to this.

    I thought this was a fun slasher. If this news is true I'll likely pick it up.

    Yup, that´s what I was thinking as well.
    If not, then I really hope Arrow releases it, packed with new exclusive extras :)

    Gary popped up on AV Maniacs several years ago and talked about upgrading the current DVD. At the time it sounded like it he was shopping around the idea but couldn't find anyone interested in doing it (these were the days before Shout Factory and long before Code Red was bit by the HD bug). It was the impression I got, anyway. If they're really doing it now, great, but until I see more solid info I'll treat this as wishful thinking.
