Did anyone else pick up the Flicker Alley Blu-ray of this ? Mine arrived in the U.K. over Christmas . It seems to be a burn on demand disc but looks like a normal factory product in all other ways . Disc is printed up nicely and there is reasonable cover art though no booklet or insert. The disc seems to be region free ( it says A,B,C on the cover ) and it is scanned from a 16 mm print with new score by the Alloy Orchestra. I've only had time to check out the first 10 minutes but the quality seems pretty good considering, I'm not technically minded but it certainly looks a lot better than what I've seen online before.
The film is paired with Portrait of a Young Man ( Henwar Rodakiewicz ) which I've not checked out yet so can't comment on that .
The only video extra seems to be " Cinema Then Cinema Now " a discussion about Page of Madness but again not checked that out yet .
I'd be interested to hear what anyone else thinks of the quality of this release .
Personally I'm just pleased it's finally available somewhere .

I picked it up, haven't had a chance to watch it yet. Hoping the new score is good, but I've always been very fond of the old one (which I think was added for the 1973 re-release, but at the moment I can't seem to find any concrete info on it)

Haven't heard of that company before – anyone know if they're any good? I'm having a look at their youtube page, and they seem to have some interesting stuff.

Lobster Films is certainly a good company. Serge Bromberg is well-regarded in the film restoration community, and Lobster has a close relationship with Flicker Alley. Many of the restorations that Flicker Alley offers were performed by Lobster Films, often in collaboration with Blackhawk Films/David Shepard. Bromberg also co-directed the fascinating documentary Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno.

My only issue with Lobster is that they only release a handful of their work on BD, and some of them could have been better (I had issues with how poorly encoded were their Charley Bowers set, for instance). But their restoration work is otherwise indeed very commandable.
