Contest: Win a “HORROR CLASSICS VOL. 1” Blu-ray Set!Movies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
There are few institutions more integral to the horror genre than Hammer Studios, the UK-based production hub that gave classic monsters of film and literature a contemporary theatrical polish, complete with blood, nudity and incredible production design. And as any Hammer fan can tell you, the wait for the studio’s scare fare to make it into the world of high definition has been a restless one. However, the wait is over, and with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releasing four of Hammer’s most memorable films in their HORROR CLASSICS VOL. 1 Blu-ray set, FANGORIA has ten terrifying copies to giveaway to devoted horror hounds. Read on to find out how…
For those unfamiliar, here’s the details behind HORROR CLASSICS VOL. 1…
THE MUMMY: Christopher Lee wraps on the moldy gauze bandages to become the tormented Kharis, an avenger stalking the hills of Victorian England to track down desecrators of his beloved’s Egyptian tomb.
FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED: Peter Cushing is Baron Frankenstein, whose experiment has gone dead wrong in Hammer Studios’ fifth Frankenstein saga. Featuring Freddie Jones as the scientist’s pitiable new creation.
DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE: Playing Bram Stoker’s infamous vampire for the third time, Christopher Lee goes fang-to-cross with the forces of good in this atmospheric, stylish film, in which each night brings the threat of death.
TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA: This entry in Hammer Studios’ cycle of hemogobbling Victorian-era horror showcases why Hammer became the name in Gothic terror. Christopher Lee again dons his cape to become Evil Incarnate.
