Rejoice, Hammer Film fans!
Just announced today is the fantastic and unexpected news that Synapse Films has negotiated the rights to release three Hammer movies to Region 1 DVD. They are VAMPIRE CIRCUS, TWINS OF EVIL and HANDS OF THE RIPPER. Fans (such as I) have been begging for years for these movies to be given some form of official video release over here and now our pleas have born fruit. And the fact that they are being handled by Don May Jr.'s Synapse films means that they will be done very, very well. Apparently there will be copious extras and even possible Blu-Ray editions as well. I can hardly wait until later this year to snag up all three! The fact that they are also releasing the 13 episode Hammer TV series HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR as a boxed set is just icing on the glorious cake. What great news!
