Synapse Films Opening The Complete Hammer House of Horror
One of our favorite shows around these parts is the anthology series "The Hammer House of Horror", and though it's been released on DVD before, you know the good folks over at Synapse Films are going to put together a package that puts that one to shame!
From the Press Release
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! Look for it on September 11th, 2012!
