    Synapse must not use camelcamelcamel. It's been cheaper at Amazon several times before.

    thanks for the info on it Ian Jane, I had a feeling Synapse would knock the ball out of the park on this release. I am really hoping they do more in 4K like that Blind Dead movie they are working on for release next year.

    My copy showed up yesterday. I didn't have time to watch the whole thing, I'll do that tonight or this weekend, but I did pop it in and watch up until Susie arrives at the school and it's pretty fucking gorgeous.

    I can't wait to get Suspiria next week. I hope this movie does really well for Synapse, because they have a lot of older releases on DVD, that I'd love to see on 4K. First 4K movie I've bought in over a year, really excited about it. I got to pick up The new 4k disc of Wizard of Oz as well, that one seems like they did a good job on it too, only negative is they seem to have left off the original mono audio as an option, but that I don't think will matter as I only listen to movie audio through my TV speakers lol.

    Mondo Digital has the 4K reviewed, and it looks amazing.

    Does this Disney/Fox merger affect the UK as well?

    I would pay laserdisc prices for a good I repeat "GOOD" quality release of Deep Throat on 4K, I know the negatives exist for it, and they would have to restore the music to the original music, which was on the VCA DVD, but not on the Arrow DVD. Now there are not but a few movies I would pay $75 for on 4K, probably like 10 porn films, but when you get into other types of movies I would like many more, especially I like concert films. And there are many horror films I'd like on 4K, I see a few classics have already been released, but people keep saying in reviews, the release of Halloween 1978 has like a shimmering effect, which I have no idea what that is, but they say its not a good thing, I've seen many YouTube vids where people say that. I kind of hate to buy any 4k disc that have a problem, it's just annoying though. Suspiria is a must purchase now that it's dropped so much in price, plus the fact that Synapse always do good work. If any movie releasing company goes 4k on disc, I am glad it was synapse, because they basically never mess up with their releases.

    Fundi, there's no risk of 4K going away, you just have fringe tastes. Uptake of 4K TVs has been faster than HD and people want content that takes advantage, and the studios have no problem putting out 4K from new productions. Catalogue and cult stuff might not ever be a big thing in 4K for multiple reasons, but mainly economics. Making a 4K output that will be of acceptable quality pretty much requires access to the original negatives of a movie, and for the vast majority of porn and exploitation films, the masters no longer exist. For cases where they do exist, the cost of restoration is too high for a release to be profitable, so nobody will bother. This is why I say that maybe going back to higher prices for home media might be something that needs to be considered.

    I would definitely hate to see UHD disappear, but in the past year nothing has been released on 4k that I want, Suspiria though is actually one film I think will look amazing on 4k, because of all the colors, I think HDR could really do magic on this film. There is another film I think would benefit from the 4k HDR, and that is The Whip and the Body by Mario Bava, that film is so gorgeous to look at, but the current blu ray, really kind of muted the colors, compared to the older DVD I had. Very beautiful film to look at in the original DVD, and would imagine a 4K of that one would benefit greatly from 4k HDR.
