Thanks for the confirmation. I will say then that it's interesting that the studio sent out the UK print so hopefully it does bode well for the future along with the Shudder stream. (though how in the heck they managed to preserve an Eastman release print that well is rather amazing. There was only maybe a brief flash of pink and some contrast fluctuation.)

How does the Shudder version compare to the UK DVD by the way? I'm very tempted to import that disc now even though I hate PAL speedup.

During a recent screening of The Devils Mark Kermode stated that Warner Brothers has prohibited any further screenings of any version of The Devils. Can anyone corroborate this? Why after all these years does this film spook them so much?

Can this really be true? It seemed like WB was finally starting to relax on the film, given the Shudder appearance of the US Cut, and even a fair amount if reperatory screenings in the past few years. The (presumably 6-year) license for the BFI release should be expiring soon; let's see what happens, I suppose.

I don't trust the former statement. A few months ago Landmark Cinemas screened Blade Runner and claimed it was the last time the studio was letting the film be screened for a significant amount of time. Three months later Metrograph screened it.
