I passed simply because they did a 4k scan. So I"m hoping we'll get a 4k release not too far down the line.

The release of Tombs of the Blind Dead is a 2K restoration from the original camera negative
It's was not 4K scan restoration

Synapse have the 4K rights but they will only do a UHD release when they are provided with a 4K scan restoration
Synapse was only provided with a 2K scan restoration of the negative

The blurb implied it was a 4k scan. But I was giving it a miss anyway as there are at least 6 4k releases coming up which I want so I have to save the pennies...... Among them 12 Angry Men and Dog Soldiers....

Group buy update - posting here as well as the GB -

Steelbooks just arrived from Synapse’s distributor today. I’ve got to unpack and inspect next.

Box was a bit damaged but should be ok I think.

I’m still dealing with COVID so please be patient.

Will have to catch up with a mountain of work next week

Thank you

The best to you and yours healthwise.
Do Synapse ship out of San Franscisco? I got an email with tracking number but it does
not say who the sender is or what is being sent. I am suspecting it might be this edition
which I purchased directly from Synapse.

If it’s from the distributor, like a new release it does.

If it’s something that they only have a few left of - stuff they take to shows or whatever that comes out of the Midwest I believe

PS - I did pick up a couple of extras, so if anyone is after a copy and hasn't gotten it yet, feel free to send a pm and I'll be glad to help.
