4.0 out of 5 stars Finally Studio Canal deliver reasonable print after many (out of copyright?) releases of this UK low buget Sci Fi classic, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: They Came From Beyond Space [DVD] (DVD)
If you read all the reviews, most prior to the Autumn 2012 issue refer to numerous mainly U S releases that may or may not have been released when the film was out of copyright. I myself have been stupid enough to buy one of those titles and can only agree with the other reviewers. This Studio Canal release dating from 2012, however is a monumental increase in Video and Audio qualuty. The print is showing it's age and may never get to the stage of the Blu Ray restorations that Hammer and Ealing are receiving. That having said, this is probably the best you'll ever get. NB The last image on this print indicates it was an Embassy release, which would have been the original US distibutor. Amicus who made the film were (to my knowledge) never distributed by Embassy in the UK) so this print was for overseas release but is far better than those releases by other companies. NB As freddie Francis directed both this and the Man In A Suitcase episode Which way did he go McGill?, it looks like he might have shot them back to back as the garage is featured in both. If you are interested, The Terronauts, 'sister' film to They Came.. is to be release shortly by Network DVD in the UK and features a pre-Doomwatch Simon Oates amongst other in the cast.
