Killers From Space Redo
« on: August 18, 2015, 11:46:20 AM »
The Film Crew did this one some time back. The print for the film was severely damaged. I'm not certain asI haven't bought this, but this one MIGHT be a better print to use for a redo?

Keep in mind when reading those Amazon reviews, that all are lumped together for every release of Killers In Space that's come out to date

I don't think picture quality is really important for a crappy movie like this. It's not like the goofy alien eyeballs are going to look BETTER in HiDef and clearer color.

  • It just dawned on me how weird this film is.

I'd have to agree that it's not like the quality of the experience with this movie would change much either way based on the quality of the print. It is nice, however, to see that there are still decent or restored copies of these old movies out there. The alternative is eventual loss. Even old b-movies deserve good care in their twilight years.

I see your point, but I disagree. This one needs to be revisited. The quality of the film used for The Film Crew release was beyond poor and very noticeable. I'd really like to see them revisit this stinker using a better and less distracting film print. Certainly one of the all time worst SciFi B films on the planet. Top 10 maybe?

Looks like a redo was accomplished...but the old Public Domain film print was used?  :'(

Oh, that's good news! I haven't picked it up yet, so I'll grab it once the new version drops.
FINE

Yeah...it's harsh. I have the restored version of KfS and had to do some fancy audio editing to get it to sync, using Goldwave.
