The NFSA’s experts had their work cut out for them when they discovered the oxide was lifting off two reels of the final sound mix. This required ‘baking’ them in a low humidity rejuvenation chamber for seven days before they could be safely digitised.

Restoration partners Frame, Set and Match had to spend almost twice the time on digitally cleaning and grading the picture than with the restorations of Starstruck (1982) and Howling III: The Marsupials (1987). 

Producer Matt Carroll contributed to the process and the South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) were very happy to see the film digitally restored.
