This Island Earth is a film that very desperately needs a new scan after the crappy German releases: even more so than many other masters from Universal they've got carried away with the DNR and smoothed all the detail out of some shots, flattening the depth in many scenes. Even in some (but not all) close-ups of hands no-one seems to have any fingerprints while their faces have all been Botoxed.

If a good scan and restoration for This Island Earth, this could be great news.

This Island Earth, been hoping for an announcement for this one a long time now ! Really hoping for an excellent transfer for this one, it's one of my absolute favorite 50'S sci-fi films. DAY ONE all the way ! This also convinces me that we will be seeing an announcement for Monster on the Campus from Scream this year, hopefully sooner that later !

Think I am going to give The Monolith Monsters another view, to see if my thoughts change on it. As a matter of fact, think I'll do that right now.

The 2016 French disc of This Island Earth is quite good. It will be interesting to see if the Scream can improve substantially on the AV presentation as I think the Elephant release looks pretty great already. However, as this is one of my vintage sci-fi favorites, it's not going to take much to make me pick up Scream's release.

There's a big expensive limited set of This Island Earth being released in Germany, mediabook, soundtrack, the lot, & they say it's a new 2018 transfer, & I thought if this is the real deal then it'll show up in other countries, so fingers crossed!

Excellent news! I just recently read the book This Island Earth is based on and was eager to see it again, as it had been years since I'd seen the non-MST3K version. I almost broke down and just ordered the DVD but I'm glad I didn't. Very excited for this one.

Gave in about a month ago and ordered the Cinema Cult blu of This Island Earth. Actually thought that now that I have it, Scream will announce it, and here we are, lol. Haven't watched it yet, been pretty busy, but, will get the Scream Factory blu day one regardless !

Excellent news! I will be purchasing every one of these.

Also, can Monster On The Campus (1958) be added into the thread title too?

THE MONOLITH MONSTERS is a perfect movie to watch with transducers under your couch. Love it.

The german set will be a new encode from the old master. The actual disc can already be bought in a cheap paper cover.
