The Andromeda Strain (1971)
Sci-fi thriller from director Robert Wise which is based on Michael Crichton’s 1969 novel of the same name. Starring Arthur Hill, James Olson & Kate Reid
Arrow have rightly gained a exceptional reputation for releasing fully restored films with many undergoing 2k restorations. However some titles get the 4K scan treatment such as this one.
The product description states:
“New restoration by Arrow Films from a 4K scan of the original camera negative.”
Def-Con 4 (1985)
Canadian Post-apocalyptic film. Directed by Paul Donovan / Starring Lenore Zann, Maury Chaykin & Kate Lynch
This one’s also been restored with Arrow stating
“Brand new 2K restoration from the original 35mm interpositive.”
Three astronauts survive World War III by being aboard a space station during the hostilities. However upon returning to earth they find a completely different world from the one they left.
The Sender (1982)
British horror film from director Roger Christian.
Starring Kathryn Harrold, Zeljko Ivanek, Shirley Knight & Paul Freeman
I’ve been prasing Arrow Video for their restorations but it seems fans of The Sender will only have a high definition transfer and will have to hope the image quality is pretty decent. Arrow simply state
“High Definition (1080p) Blu-Ray presentation.”
Double Face (1969)
Italian Thriller from director Riccardo Freda.
Arrow deserve a lot of credit for releasing restored versions of most of their releases and Double Face is no exception. Or as they put it
“Brand new 2K restoration of the full-length Italian version of the film from the original 35mm camera negative.”
American Horror Project Vol. 2 (Contains three horror films)
This one also states
“Brand new 2K restorations from original film elements.”
The films include are:
- Dream No Evil (1970) Directed by John Hayes
- Dark August (1976) Directed by Martin Goldman
- The Child (1977) Directed by Robert Voskanian

All seven films are UK releases whilst the USA and Canada can look forward to five on them, the three films in American Horror Project Vol. 2, Double Face and The Andromeda Strain.

I’ve added the Amazon links below which also helps you support our website, all you need do is purchase via those affiliate to help us out at no cost to you.
June appears to be a rather nice themed month with plenty of of horror and post-apocalyptic titles. I may review a couple of these such as The Andromeda Strain (1971) keep a look out for those. It should however be a very good Blu-ray release having undergone a 4k restoration.
