More Hammer Films Heading to Blu-ray

Posted November 17, 2011 04:33 AM by Webmaster

Studio CanalThe UK branch of Studio Canal (formerly Optimum Home Entertainment) has revealed that it is planning to release on Blu-ray three more cult Hammer films: John Gilling's The Reptile (1966) and The Plague of the Zombies (1966), and Terence Fisher's Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966). Technical specs, region coding status and special features for these releases are unknown at the moment, but the preliminary release date for all three is February 27th.

Note: Last month, Studio Canal released on Blu-ray Roy Ward Baker's Quatermass and the Pit a.k.a Five Million Years to Earth (1967). Blu-ray.com has reviewed it here.

There are so many Hammer films, and so few on Blu-ray.... I'd like to see more released en masse, perhaps in a few multi-disc sets. I realise there could be all sorts of issues with distribution rights.

These were issued on DVD by Anchor Bay (back in the day when AB did quality reissues)

Please let these be Region Free. If so, Dracula: Prince of Darkness for me.

They need to release these stateside as well. The Reptile and Plague of the Zombies are two of my favorite Hammer films. Hope we get a few in the upcoming year!

This company released Quatermass and the Pit on blu-ray in Region 2 ! I am a huge fan of Hammer horror films, so, I hope they change this and release these region free. I for one would buy all of these titles , plus, Quartermass and the Pit. I also read that Twins of Evil and Countess Dracula are making their way to blu-ray next year. I have all of these on dvd. Dracula Prince of Darkness, by Anchor Bay, is letterboxed, so a blu-ray release would be fantastic

Needs more of the Hammer Productions of The Mummy, Dracula and Frankenstein. First two of each film would be good as a double feature.

Warner has the rights to horror of Dracula and curse of Frankenstein so that's a problem.
great news about these titles though!
just watched Plague of the Zombies in October on the AB dvd.

OK studio pin heads, here`s a way to max your profits (greedy lot) ABOLISH REGION CODES!!!!!
Clear enough morons?
If you do it, all these Hammer titles will sell like hotcakes out of an oven.
Think about it studio heads, imagine all that money,(the call girls/champagne baths/green mud facials....all with TLC)
Yum yum; yes a REGION coding stands between yourselves and total flatulent riches beyond your wildest greedy fingers. So repeat after me....."it`s only a code....IT`S Only a code.....It`s only a code"

Woo hoo, a double-dose of Jaqueline Pearce in HD! It's a shame these aren't being released for Region A and likely won't be region-free, but I'm glad I have a region-free player so I can enjoy all three of these like I did the excellent Quatermass and the Pit BR.

Any recommendations for a region free bluray player that is affordable and still available; I live in Canada.
I presently have a Panasonic BD-35; I do not believe it can be moded unless I throw it underneath a bus.

Love me some Hammer films! I'm a big fan and have them all on DVD. I hope they get released here in the States or at the very least be released region free. Can't go wrong with having more Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee on bluray! :-)

timbersbimbers--just don't see Warner releasing those anytime soon, but hopefully eventually. The fact that they are British doesn't work in their favor as far as a Warner US release imo. I would be far more optimistic for a US bd release if the rights were with Blue Underground or a similar entity. I know a lot of people would love to have them on blu that's for sure.

All great movies but the one to get real excited about is Dracula: Prince of Darkness. As EManT2200 pointed out, the original stateside AB DVD release was letterboxed and not enhanced for widescreen. Unfortunatley, I live in region A...so chances are slim that this will be region free.
