Angel Heart getting a 4K restoration and is coming to DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray in October

Studiocanal have announced the Mickey Rourke and Robert De Niro thriller, Angel Heart is set for release on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray on 14th October.

The restoration process required over 200 hours of manual frame-by-frame fixes carried out, with Silver Salt’s restoring the film to how it would have looked upon original release.  Senior colourist, Steve Bearman utilised the additional range of HDR to optimise the distinctive neo-noir aesthetic of the film, with heavy contrast between light and shadow adding to the general menace on screen, with the additional sharpness and contrast lending itself especially well to the HDR and Dolby Vision.  Special attention was also given to all the effects which occur throughout the film.  This process followed a semi-automated digital pass which had removed persistent dirt and sparkle, and applied general stability.
