many thanks, @Scraggy, beat me to it! :thumbs: this is great, for me one of those films like The Andromeda Strain that has enough about it - atmosphere, science and wierdess - to overcome any other aspects that may have dated. it's not a perfect film, but it's certainly an interesting one, will be buying. :woot: will go well with the soundtrack release.

for anyone who doesn't know what this is, here's two trailers - the original, trippy, all over the place one, followed by a 'modern' version, which plays better :watch::

Couldn't agree more @steelmybeatingheart . Watched this as a young 'un on TV, so many years ago, & when the Carlotta edition was announced, was really tempted, but could not justify spending that much on a film which my perspective on would certainly have changed over the years
The new restoration & whole bunch of extras have sold me on this, even with my experience with previous 101 Films regarding picture & audio quality.
Thanks for the trailers :thanks:

In France there is also a release in the next time. Additional a collectors book with slipbox is availible for pre order. All editions look very good I think.
