Hammer Horror fans get another serving from Warner Home Video

Hammer Horror fans will certainly be excited to learn that Warner Home Video has finally scheduled additional releases of these cult classics for release on DVD.

Terence Fisher’s 1958 masterpiece Horror Of Dracula, the film that spawned the entire Hammer Dracula series of films, has been slated for release later this year. It established Christopher Lee as the seminal Dracula actor of the time and became an instant fan favorite through its atmospheric, gothic cinematography, glorious music, superb dramaturgy and of course the horrors….

After Jonathan Harker attacks Dracula at his castle, the vampire travels to a nearby city, where he preys on the family of Harker’s fiancée. The only one who may be able to protect them is Dr. van Helsing, Harker’s friend and fellow-student of vampires, who is determined to destroy Dracula, whatever the cost.

Also finally arriving on DVD is The Curse Of Frankenstein, Terence Fisher’s 1957 inspired but loose Frankenstein adaptation, which was a milestone in Hammer Studios’ career. It lead to the licensing of the Universal monster characters for exploration in various movies. The rest is history, as they say…
