More Hammer Classics On DVD
Following the success of last year's DVD releases of The Camp On Blood Island, Yesterday's Enemy and The Damned, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced three more Hammer titles. The Two Faces Of Dr Jekyll (cert 15), Taste Of Fear (12) and The Gorgon (12) all make their Region 2 DVD debuts on Monday 15 February. Each title has been sourced from a high definition master, and comes complete with a trailer and a 24-page booklet illustrated with images from the Columbia Pictures archive. The booklets are written by Hammer Films' historian Marcus Hearn. "Sony have once again done a fantastic job with the picture quality on these discs," he says. "I'm especially pleased to report that this version of The Two Faces Of Dr Jekyll is longer than both the American and British release prints."
Each disc has a RRP of £12.99 and will initially only be available from the Hammer Shop and other select online retailers.
