The Shining (1980) - Zemastered Edition v2.2

Description:

I was disappointed, but not surprised to see that the 1972 Warner Bros logo was not restored on the 4K release. This sparked a simple project to recreate the logo, and add it to the start of the film. Soon after I started working on this project, I discovered the ABC broadcast from 1985 and the 1985 Laserdisc have blue credits at the end. I felt it gave the credits an even more unnerving feeling, so I added it back to the film.

The shots with snow are very white in the 4K remaster. When I was watching the 4K remaster, I always thought the snow should be shifted more blue instead of being sharply white. The 2007 Blu-ray had too much blue in my opinion, but I don’t think it should be eradicated completely.

I was able to get my hands on the mono soundtrack from the 1983 Laserdisc and the 1999 DVD. Sadly both are compressed, but it did not hinder my listening experience in the slightest. I recommend the Laserdisc mix as it is less compressed and sounds higher quality.
