Any horror fans out there? I love a bit of film gore. So I thought I’d share the bloody news that a bunch of horror classics produced by Britain’s Hammer Films studios are being restored for release on Blu-Ray.
Having more recently produced Let Me In and The Woman In Black after a period of dormancy, more than 30 films will be brought back from the Hammer Films back-catalogue for release.
The restored films are to including cast member interviews and new or extended scenes that were cut from the originals – including a recently-discovered extended death scene in Terence Fisher‘s Dracula, cut from the 1958 release – with Pinewood Studios, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Bros, Studio Canal and Paramount Pictures all contributing material.
Established in 1934, Hammer Films‘ notable film releases up for restoration also include The Curse Of Frankenstein, The Plague of The Zombies, Dracula: Prince of Darkness, Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter, The Mummy, Frankenstein Created Woman, The Lost Continent, The Reptile Slave Girls and The Vengeance of She.
