THE AMAZING TRANSPARENT MAN (1960) B&W 58 Minutes 1.85:1 Not Rated
This collection features three sci-fi shockers directed by the sensational Edgar G. Ulmer (The Black Cat, Detour). THE MAN FROM PLANET X (1950) – On the coast of Scotland, where there’s enough fog to hide an alien landing, an astronomer discovers that one has actually occurred. But it’s soon realized that the creature, the “Man from Planet X,” has definite plans—not for friendship, but for domination—unleashing “out-of-this-world” havoc on the villagers! BEYOND THE TIME BARRIER (1960) – In 1960, U.S. Air Force Major William Allison pilots the X80 jet, which is capable of speeds up to 5,000 miles an hour and reaching heights of more than 100 miles above Earth. Upon nearly reaching outer space, Allison is unaware that the X80’s tremendous velocity has propelled him through a time barrier and into the post-apocalyptic year of 2024. He soon finds himself held captive in an underground city known as the Citadel, whose inhabitants have been menaced by mutants and a deadly virus. Now Allison must find a way to return to the past and warn humanity of impending disaster. THE AMAZING TRANSPARENT MAN (1960) – In this pulse-pounding sci-fi classic, safecracker Joey Faust is snatched out of prison and made invisible with an atomic ray gun, apparently—and transparently—for the sole purpose of stealing nuclear fuel for a villain named Krenner and his beautiful moll Laura. But when Faust realizes his radiation-generated new look is slowly poisoning him, the tables are quickly turned, and his simple heist could now become the decade’s most horrifying nuclear nightmare of vengeance!

A nice surprise here! I have been waiting a while for Beyond The Time Barrier to make it to Blu. I just bought the now out of print Man From Planet X off an Ebay dealer...Oh well. I can always return it if I don't open it. The other title from numerous reviews is considered a dud, but haven't seen it in quite some time. This is certainly worth picking up for those 2 titles. Thank you.

Be interesting to see what element was used as a source.

It would seem Criterion has no interest in releasing 4K versions of films from MGM (United Artist) it released in blu ray and so Kino obtained the rights to the 4K versons. Or perhaps Kino outbid Criterion for the rights. So look at the Criterion blu rays from MGM (United Artists) for some future 4K Kino blu rays. Maybe "Midnight Cowboy" or "Women In Love" Not Criterion but maybe Kino will get the 4K "West Side Story" (1961)

Perhaps, but that's a discussion for another thread.

Well..actually the copy of Man From Planet X I bought already was a used copy, albeit for quite less than what copies are now for this out of print title. I am still looking forward to getting this collection. I wonder why another Ulmer title "Daughter Of Dr. Jekyll" wasn't included. My guess Kino doesn't own the rights to it.

Coming March 15th!

Last of the Dogmen (1995)
• Newly Restored from a 4K Scan of the Original Camera Negative – Color Graded and Approved by Director Tab Murphy and Cinematographer Karl Walter Lindenlaub!
• NEW Audio Commentary by Writer/Director Tab Murphy, Producer Joel B. Michaels, Moderated by Filmmaker Douglas Hosdale
• Booklet Essay by Film Historian Julie Kirgo
• Newly Commissioned Art by Vince Evans
• Includes Audio with Narration by Wilfred Brimley and the Director Preferred Version Without Narration
• Theatrical Trailer (Newly Mastered in 2K)
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 118 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated PG
Tom Berenger (Shoot to Kill, Shattered) is Lewis Gates, a bounty hunter haunted by the past, hired to track down three escaped convicts in the Oxbow region of the Rockies. Their trail leads him to a secluded spot and signs of a struggle, but no bodies—only a strange arrow shaft remains. Gates takes the arrow to an expert in Native American culture, Lillian Sloan (Barbara Hershey, Hoosiers, The Public Eye), and together they set off in search of an impossible mystery—a tribe they believe cannot exist, massacred over 100 years ago. What they discover deep in the Oxbow may prove an answer to both Lillian’s dreams and Lewis’s nightmares. But for now, it’s a desperate race against time if they are to save the last of the Dogmen from the destructive forces of the modern world. Tab Murphy (Gorillas in the Mist, Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Tarzan) wrote and made his directorial debut with this beautifully photographed modern-day western filled with romance, adventure and Native American folklore. Co-starring Kurtwood Smith (RoboCop) and Steve Reevis (Dances with Wolves).

That synopsis doesn't encourage me but, being a big fan of Barbara Hershey - ever since Last Summer - I'll probably buy this disc,.
