Hey Everyone, Just thought I would share a few thoughts after having watched the stunning brand new 4K UHD Studio Canal release here in the UK. UHD is region free but the 2 x BD’s (extras & the movie) are region B locked. You also get the soundtrack CD as well as a nice new poster, some picture postcards & a little booklet with a few decent archive interviews in. The overall package is very well put together the movie also includes a fancy new CG main menu. I did not watch it but understand the BD is also from the new remastered 4K transfer.
Picture quality is fantastic. Looks exactly as you would expect a 1980 low budget horror movie to look like. First 25 mins are very very dark & very grainy exactly as it should be. You will probably need to adjust the HDR on your display. I set mine to Technicolour Expert then it looked perfect before then it looked too bright I could see the compression blocks.
The new 4K image looks very sublime in many places especially the ocean waves...
