Specs and Pre-Order Info for New 'Hammer House of Horror' Box Set!

Looking for some shorter films to fill the gaps between watching monster movies this coming Halloween season? The classic anthology series "Hammer House of Horror" should do nicely. A few years after the massively influential British studio stopped making movies, Hammer popped up on the tele to serve up the usual witches, warlocks, and werewolves in neat hour-long episodes. Such horror vets as Peter Cushing, Denholm Elliott, and Patricia "Magenta" Quinn came along to the haunted carnival. The series made its U.S. DVD debut in 2001, but that set has since lapsed out of print. Now Synapse Films has a rerelease scheduled for September 11, 2012.

The 5-disc collection will include several new extras:

*Episode introductions with film historian Shane M. Dallman
*Grave Recollections: A Visit with Kathryn Leigh Scott (featurette)
*Hammer Housekeeping: A Visit with Mia Nadasi (featurette)
*Animated Still Gallery

"Hammer House of Horror" is now available to pre-order from here:
