Scream factory has announced a dual version release. Original and then desaturated. YES!

I have the original laserdisc, but haven’t had a chance to unpack my player and test it yet. I aim to create a re-colorized HD version as soon as I have time (currently renovating my basement as my home studio)

Last night I was tinkering around with Photoshop, and came up with this piece of work. I altered a still from the official DVD, and matched it up with a still from the HD trailer (which has the original color timing). The result was the image in the middle. With some patience and attention to detail, a fairly accurate restoration could be done from the existing transfer.
This looks promising. I could rip the blu-ray and do an adjustment in a professional color grading program like DaVinci Resolve to try to restore the movie to what I remember.
