Hammer's 'House of Horror' Heads to DVD   

July 11, 2012 Each generation creates tales of horror… stories that seep through the very heart of our collective fears. Hammer did that in theaters worldwide in the 1950s and '60s -- and on television in the early '80s.

The series that did that, the Hammer House of Horror, has had limited releases to VHS and DVD over the years. Now, Synapse Films is presenting this essential collection of all 13 tales of terror from the legendary British film studio into THE COMPLETE HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR collector's set! It's hitting DVD shelves Sept. 11.

In 1980 Hammer took over the old Hampden Manor House in the heartland of England and produced a series of thirteen horror stories to air on British television. With a host of Hammer regulars, including Peter Cushing
(Twins of Evil, Star Wars) and
Denholm Elliott (Raiders of the Lost Ark), classic thespians including Brian Cox (The Ring), Patricia Quinn (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Georgina Hale (The Devils), Diana Dors (Theatre of Blood) and Dark Shadows stalwart Kathryn Leigh Scott, along with early appearances by actors like Pierce Brosnan (GoldenEye), each episode provides a completely new and individual tale of terror and suspense.

Synapse Films is proud to present the complete series of HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR in its original airdate order, with all-new introductions and supplemental features. This five-disc Collector's Edition presents each episode with all nudity and violence intact!
