I’m attempting a huge crowdfunding project to get a list of 35mm films scanned, including Alien, Aliens, Terminator 1/2, Blade Runner, Escape From New York, Predator, along with a list of horror titles, and more to follow. I’m working with a few other 35mm project leaders. The initial part will likely completed in February 2022, with further instalments released as per the dates listed. You can read all the details here;

All the complete scans are either my own funded scans, with some by other contributors. If anyone would be interested, please message me and I’ll add you to the project mailing list.

All the images on your site look fantastic! Wish they were 4k but I understand why they can’t be atm.

Return of the Living Dead is quite a strange film to say the least. I’d say out all the scans on the list, I am most excited to see Predator and Escape from New York. I wish I could donate to the effort, but alas I don’t have a PayPal account.

I wonder how these will compare to the existing blu ray or 4K releases?. The presence of mono/stereo sound is already a big plus for me. Surround sound really isn’t my thing, regardless if it’s configured well or not.
