The Cohen BD is out in three months and currently on offer for £15 plus change from wowHD. Undecided on whether to keep that pre-order or to wait...

At the very least, the MoC release will have better looking packaging than Cohen.

A 4K restoration of THE OLD DARK HOUSE is coming to screens in UK & Ireland in March 2018 followed by a Masters of Cinema Dual Format edition later in the year! More details to be revealed soon...

I have this restoration on the Cohen Blu-Ray, which was released in October, and it does indeed look fantastic.

The Graham Humphries theatrical poster for this is lovely. Will be going to see the 4k resto on the big screen at the Filmhouse in April.

The Cohen Collection BD was superlative and loaded with extras. (FWIW, James Cameron reportedly cast Gloria Stuart in Titanic because of her highly entertaining commentary on this film, which was originally issued on an LD release.) But MoC has really gone the extra mile, porting over those extras and adding these (a third commentary!) on top. Not enough for me to double dip, but honestly this is the one to get if you're region-free and haven't bought it already.

I believe the Cohen BD just ported over the extras from the super old Kino DVD.

That would make sense - I haven't seen the Karloff extra yet, but I know the commentaries were old (Stuart's been dead since 2010) and the Curtis Harrington extra seemed to have been shot decades ago on videotape.

All three commentaries appear to be ports, as Network recorded one with Kim Newman & Stephen Jones for the UK DVD release.
