Synapse is in the middle of success streak with Hammer properties thanks to excellent remastered discs of films like Vampire Circus and Twins Of Evil – and it looks like they are about to go deeper into that territory with a generous new t.v.-on-DVD release. September 11th will see the release of The Complete Hammer House Of Horror, which will collect the 13 episodes of this short-lived but fondly-remembered horror anthology series. Read on for all the fiendishly frightful details…
THE COBWEBBED DOOR CREAKS OPEN! WELCOME TO
ALL 13 EPISODES IN ONE 5-DVD COLLECTOR’S EDITION!
Each generation creates tales of horror… stories that seep through the very heart of our collective fears. The legendary Hammer Studios is widely recognized as the high watermark of the gothic macabre, creating some of the most chilling and recognizable horror films of all time. Synapse Films is proud to present this essential collection of all 13 tales of terror from the legendary British film studio into THE COMPLETE HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR collector’s set!
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.
Synapse Films is proud to present the complete series of HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR in its original airdate order, with all-new introductions and supplemental features. This five-disc Collector’s Edition presents each episode with all nudity and violence intact!
