In 2011, film buff Ben Solovey bought a host of old film reels hailing from distributor Emerson Films via an [=eBay=] auction, partially because he saw ''Manos'' listed on the collection of reels. That ''Manos''' reel ended up surprising Solovey when he received it, because [[http://manosinhd.com he'd actually bought the film's original 16mm workprint.]] Solovey established a {{Kickstarter}} [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1325482813/manos-the-restoration campaign]] to help fund a complete [[UsefulNotes/BluRay high-definition]] restoration of the movie from the pristine-condition workprint; by the campaign's end, Solovey raised almost 400% more than the initial goal. A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uae58589aec side-by-side comparison]] of the restoration illustrates the dramatic difference between the restored version helmed by Solovey and the currently-available DVD release (created from third-generation sources and degraded beyond repair). A [[http://www.bleedingcool.com/2015/10/31/manos-the-hands-of-fate-inspires-devotion-copyright-battle/ legal battle between Solovey and Harold's son Joe]] held up the process, in which it was revealed that Hal [[EpicFail never secured the copyright to the film itself]]. Ultimately, the restored film was released on October 15, 2015 [[http://synapse-films.com/synapse-films/manos-the-hands-of-fate-special-edition-blu-ray/ thanks to Synapse films.]]
