    Could someone post a list of Amicus titles out on DVD (region 1 & 2)?

    And also tell me if there are other Hammer DVDs apart from the ones released by Anchor Bay? (I know about the UK region 2 "She" DVD, and Image's "Kiss of the Vampire" and "Spaceways".)

    Thanks!

    Is "Vault..." uncut on DVD ?. -My PAL VHS is missing a bit of the "hand scene" with Denholm Elliott.
     
  6. the running time is not longer than the vhs
    it is cut
    (VIPCO is the specialist in special "uncut" versions)

    re:
    I was pondering this one, and I thought it wasn't only not 16x9, but that it was full-frame. If it isn't, I'd definitely appreciate knowing as I've got a soft spot for both it and the original Tales from the Crypt movie.

    Thanks

    Also by Hammer: "Phantom Ship" (aka "The Mystery of Marie Celeste"), with Bela Lugosi, will be released May 28 by Image Entertainment.

    Anchor Bay will release Hammer's "Hell Is a City" and "Straight on till Morning" this summer, in addition to the ones already mentioned above.

    All these are of course region 1 releases.

    Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (R2 Italian DVD: Cinque Chiave del Terrore) : Does this have an English audio track, or is it dubbed in Italian?

  14. (new) Upcoming Hammer in the UK

    Will be released in october (only an anouncement)

    Hammer Horror resurrected on DVD

    Hammer horror fans can look forward to seeing some of their favourite chillers this autumn when Warner Home Video exhumes Blood From The Mummys Tomb (1971), The Devil Rides Out (1968), Horror of Frankenstein (1970), Lust For A Vampire (1971) and Scars of Dracula (1970).

    The titles will be available in a specially packaged boxset or you can buy them seperately. No details on extras or price are available yet but the provisional release date is 14th October.

    Biggest question: can Warner keep the promise?

    Many among us have already bought the beautiful Anchor Bay DVDs with a lot of extras...

    :rolleyes:
