    Diabolik has the Blu-ray back in stock so I ordered one.

    That's all. I have nothing more to add right now.

    Eric Red tweeted that a Blu-ray of The Hitcher will be announced soon. He obviously didn't say who is releasing it, but it is nice to know it is in the works.

    From Blu-ray forum:

    A source who has submitted an extra for the upcoming release of 1986's The Hitcher tells me its Second Sight and not Arrow who will be putting it out.

    The source is Mike White of the The Projection Booth, who mentioned that Second Sight contacted him about including their The Hitcher episode as an extra.

    Does this give some hope for Ricochet (1991)? It suffers from similar rights issues, does it not?

    From Second Sight Twitter (3 Tweets):

    *THE HITCHER*
    Confirming we will be releasing on Blu-ray! As original elements are missing / no longer exist a 4K release won’t be possible. We’ve searched via several film archive associations with worldwide members plus other routes. Only prints exist, and rarely.
    We will be using the existing master taken from a print which is in the best condition we have seen. However, further restoration work is being done on the master to address several issues we can improve upon, including some image warping caused by rips/tears.
    Hours will be spent in manual restoration for further dirt and scratch removal, splice removal, improved stability and flicker repair. We are also re-grading to balance colour given the print source. We aim to give The Hitcher the best possible presentation it has ever had.
