I've been wanting a copy of Warlords of Atlantis and not been wanting to pay the silly money the Cinema Club DVD was going for until recently, so I'm happy.  ::)

Just noticed these nicely packaged Amicus Classics on Amazon.co.uk which can be picked up for under £5 each





It's been so long since I sold my old Anchor Bay coffin box set, did that version of THE BEAST MUST DIE have the werewolf break in it?

Yep. The print was was fullscreen and really soft though. I sold my coffin box years ago and have the Dark Sky discs of three of the films. I actually found some of the Anchor Bay discs the other day, a bit scratched. They must be the original discs before the replacements were sent out. I remember a ton of complaints about the discs arriving loose.

Cheers for the info mate. Does anyone know what the print is like on this new Optimum disc?

Here's a review I found

http://www.avforums.com/movies/The-Beast-Must-Die-review_9002/dvd.html

If I can actually find my Dark Sky disc I'll see if I can do a quick comparison with the AB one as well. Had a look for it earlier and no idea where it is but all my DVD's are in a right mess at the moment.

According to Hammer's twitter, The Devil Rides Out will be released on Oct 22nd, the same day as Rasputin and The Mummy's Shroud, which have been put back from their original September date.

There's loads of news about Curse of Frankenstein actually! It's been the source of a raging debate for the past couple of weeks.

Basically, it's ready and sounds like it'll be after this bunch but Hammer have been insisting, after looking at the open matte transfer that it's genuinely framed for 1.37:1 and were all ready to release it in that ratio. A barrage of comments from punters, experts and whoever has now convinced them to release it in 1.66:1 as well, which is probably a good thing as it doesn't sound like they're actually sure about it.

They're screening the restoration next week actually..

http://www.hammerfilms.com/events/event/id/67/hammer-has-risen-from-the-grave

They're kind of using this restoration as a test before they work on Dracula for next year.
