Warner Hammer Blu-Ray For Halloween !!


  In some news that has been along time coming, Warner has finally announced the region A release of some of their Hammer titles on blu-ray for this fall. Coming out Oct. 6 is THE MUMMY (1959), DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE (1968), FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED (1969) and TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA (1970).  Although its missing the two linchpins (being 1957's CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN & 1958's HORROR OF DRACULA - which presumably will be released at a later date), the set has what is generally considered the best of the Frankenstein sequels along with two of the finer in the Dracula series - and of course THE MUMMY. It's interesting that the set only has one title (THE MUMMY) that was previously released on region B and in the case of TASTE, its always something special when we get more Linda Hayden in HD. The titles will also be available separately.
   Warner has been planning this release for some time and postponed the announcement from June 11 in respect to the passing of Christopher Lee.
