This movie itself is so awesome as mentioned in many other reviews, so I'll keep my review focused on the quality and general coolness...
Over the many years I've owned 4 versions of this movie on DVD, and while one was semi-watchable, overall they were all crap.
Until this very version form Studio Canal that is.This one is night and day above those others, it's almost looks like they remastered it, though they sadly didn't, but just imagine this remastered on blu-ray, drool....
As far as the movie itself, from all of my efforts to obtain it, I obviously love it so much, it's a huge favorite from that time period. 50's and 60's sci-fi movies are my main collecting interest, partly because I grew up in the 60's and watched all of those movies on TV constantly as I was growing up, especially on the late night horror movie shows that were everywhere back then.
British SciFi in the 50's and 60's was a beautiful thing that rivaled anything the US filmmakers were producing. As soon as they started being released on DVD I invested in an early Sampo dvd player that was region free. Since then I've gone through probably 5 more players from various manufacturers. My current region free bluray/dvd palyer allows me to buy anything made anywhere in the world and I have probably a hundred plus region B blurays alone.
In closing, I highly recommend this DVD and can't imagine anyone disagreeing with me once they've seen it. So buy it now and decide for yourself.
Robert Hutton is unconvincing as some kind of brain trust scientist. Michael Gough's appearence was brief but memorable. The surprise ending is a nice bonus!
Recommended for completeists.
