Carlton Video releases the final two volumes of Hammer House of Horror in the UK on Monday 16 April. These VHS tapes feature some of the Hammerweb team's favourite episodes:Volume Three: Rude Awakening, Charlie Boy and Children of the Full Moon. Volume Four: The 13th Reunion, Carpathian Eagle, Guardian of the Abyss and Growing Pains


Thanks to Keith Manasco, who's brought a couple of exciting new releases to our attention. On 3 July, the DVDs

The Horror of Hammer and Tales of Frankenstein will be released by All Day Entertainment in the US. The Horror of Hammer is a 97-minute compilation of original trailers, and Tales of Frankenstein is a 105-minute disc featuring trailers, interviews, and the complete unbroadcast pilot of Hammer's Tales of Frankenstein

, starring Anton Diffring as the Baron. Both of these sound as though they're well worth tracking down.

In the US,

Anchor Bay Entertainment

has announced provisional on-sale dates for its latest batch of Hammer DVDs. August will see the release of:

Blood From the Mummy's Tomb

The disc features an introduction by star Valerie Leon. A limited edition will be packaged with a bonus disc of Hammer trailers.
