1st page: TRILOGY OF TERROR is ABC, not Touchstone/Hollywood.

Paul Verhoeven's SPETTERS is coming soon.

Quote:
Spetters was licensed from MGM - last title from this current deal. PV's other early foreign films are with another company.

A new 4K restoration of Hitchcock's Under Capricorn is on its way, licensed from CBS. It'll be great to finally see Jack Cardiff's photography as intended and not in a subpar public domain transfer.

Image's release was not public domain, and it in fact looked quite good

The Image DVD looked very similar to a 35mm print I saw, but the bigger problem isn't resolution but color. Granted, part of the issue may be the film's palette (which seems to run much more pastel than Cardiff's films for the Archers) and I can't know for sure what the film looked like on release, but the colors in the print and DVD looked very faded, with a slight pink/brown pallor. I hope some kind of photochemical restoration was done on this, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is just a cleaned-up, higher resolution scan of a faded old print.

Kino says that the "BFI handled the 4K scans of the original negatives and [they're] doing additional color corrections and DRS."

That's more heartening. It still probably won't be on the level of the Film Foundation restorations of the Archer films (the Under Capricorn DVD looks not dissimilar to Criterion's original edition of the Red Shoes), but almost anything should be a big improvement.
