While attending the Fantasia festival in Montreal, Fango sat down with Don May Jr. of
Synapse Films, who informed us of a few new
horrific acquisitions for forthcoming Blu-ray/DVD release—including an addition to the company’s Hammer line.
May confirmed that Synapse has picked up COUNTESS DRACULA (pictured),
the 1971 erotic vampire opus directed by Peter Sasdy and starring the late
Ingrid Pitt. “We just got the HD master from MGM,” May tells Fango, adding that
the COUNTESS release will follow TWINS OF EVIL, coming this November or
December, and HANDS OF THE RIPPER, out mid-next year.
In addition, May reveals to us that Synapse has acquired AT
MIDNIGHT I’LL TAKE YOUR SOUL and THIS NIGHT I’LL POSSESS YOUR CORPSE, the first
two films by José Mojica Marins featuring his Zé do Caixao/Coffin Joe
character. Having previously issued the Coffin Joe revival movie EMBODIMENT OF
EVIL, the company will bring us new releases of those earlier features with
extras ported over from the previous Portuguese DVD boxed set. Stay tuned for
updates on these titles, and read more about Synapse’s exciting lineup for the
second half of 2011 here.
