The word on the street is that the folks at Blue Underground are delivering an Ultra HD 4K restoration to Larry Cohen mid-1970's SciFi/Horror God Told Me To this July 19th to interest parties in the consumer marketplace. Given that it's Cohen, I am a bit surprised I hadn't heard about this one -- I've covered a good handful of his properties within SciFiHistory.Net's corresponding citation pages -- and I've reached out to the good people at Blue to see if I might be able to get my hands on a copy for review purposes. Keep your eyes peeled on this space, and I'll bring you up to speed should I get to screen this one as it looks mighty, mighty interesting.
I'll be doing the usual copying and pasting of the information I've received via the company's press release below. I'll also post the Amazon.com link right here if you're interested in zipping over that way and setting the package into your pre-order status.
As always, thanks for reading ... and you know the rest ...
