On September 11th, The Complete Hammer House of Horror can be yours to own, courtesy of of Synapse Films. With an MSRP of $39.95, Synapse presents the 13-episode series (702 minutes) in its original airdate order with all-new introductions and features. Bonus! Nudity and violence are intact in each episode from directors Alan Gibson (The Satanic Rights of Dracula), Peter Sasdy (Countess Dracula), Tom Clegg, Don Leaver and Francis Megahy.
From the press release:
In 1980 Hammer took over the old Hampden Manor House in the heartland of England and produced a series of thirteen horror stories to air on British television. With a host of Hammer regulars, including Peter Cushing (Twins of Evil, Star Wars) and Denholm Elliott (Raiders of the Lost Ark), classic thespians including Brian Cox (The Ring), Patricia Quinn (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Georgina Hale (The Devils), Diana Dors (Theatre of Blood) and Dark Shadows stalwart Kathryn Leigh Scott, along with early appearances by actors like Pierce Brosnan (GoldenEye), each episode provides a completely new and individual tale of terror and suspense.
I have to admit, I have not seen one episode of Hammer House of Horror, so I'm very interested in checking this out based on the cast alone. That and the promised nudity and violence. Blood and boobs, man. Blood and boobs.
