This is listed on Amazon for a September 2015 release from Odeon on Blu-ray...

Product Description
Scanned at 4k by Pinewood Post Production and with newly commissioned Steel Book art by the renowned Graham Humphreys, this collector's version is limited to 4,000 individually numbered Steel Books. Dr Terror (Peter Cushing) is a mysterious fortune teller who boards a train and offers to tell fellow passengers (Christopher Lee, Roy Castle, Donald Sutherland) their fortune with tarot cards. Five possible futures unfold: an architect returns to his ancestral home to find a werewolf out for revenge; a huge flesh-eating vine takes over a house; a musician gets involved with voodoo; an art critic is pursued by a disembodied hand and a doctor discovers his new wife is a vampire. But they all end in the same result…..DEATH. A fascinating and fast paced example of portmanteau film-making with a deadly twist in the tale.

Brand new Limited numbered edition release of 4,000 with specially commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys. Includes a brand new making of Dr Terror documentary by Nucleus Films and a recently filmed appreciation of the life and career of the late Sir Christopher Lee.

They put the artwork for the steelbook on their Facebook page and it looks great but I'd like the option of buying a standard version too. It's £15.99 + shipping direct btw.

Odeon titles have been really well priced in HMV and I'm interested to see how much this will be. If they want to shift 4000 I think they'll need the extra outlets. Getting a German release too.

That's one of his, more recent, better efforts.

He seemed to lose the plot a bit after the eighties.

His eighties stuff is iconic.

The new doc is nearly an hour long! This looks like it's going to be tops. No standard release until spring next year and looks like the doc might not be on that one. Steelbook it is then!

Odeon posted a clip to show the end credits have finally been restored from a non tape source, as well as some small extra footage being found.

Seems the Odoon has a bit of the piss yellow thing going on.

It's hard to decide which one to get looking a them screenshots, each has a load of images that looks better than the rival release depending on scenes.

Odd isn't it? I've gone for the Odeon version regardless

Definitely a bit of both from those caps. Odeon maybe slightly too high contrast.... maybe. Odeon too dark maybe..

Odeon more yellow in comparison but then Bernsrd Lee looks like he tried to cover some sunburn with a fake tan.

I'll see how the Odeon looks when it arrives. One of the biggest discrepancies is the title card. I've seen someone  swear it should be red. Fucked if I can remember from TV and all my recent viewings have been with the German titles.
