Here's hoping this lot of Hammer titles does well so we can see some more in the near future. This and Plague Of The Zombies are possibly my two favourites but I'd really like The Devil Rides Out too. Well, I'd like them all but I'll take what I can get!

Any news on how much effort is being put into restoring these properly?

Great news and I hope the transfer is as good as it can be.

The Hammer film I really want (and I know Im not the only one) is The Devil Rides Out of course...ive held off buying the DVD for what seems like years now!

I understand that the DVD's of this have looked less than stella. It was shot in techniscope, & I've examined the original negatives a few techniscope films, & they're always in pristeen condition. The thing about (two-perf) techniscope is that you can't use it for release prints, so they do a couple of prints to get the grading (timing) right, & then print the anamorphic dupe to make the prints from...& the original negs go back in the tin & stay there. So it's all down to; did they locate the original negs for this release? Me, I'm not that interested, the two Hammer vampire films I'd love on BD are, the 50's Dracula & The Kiss Of The Vampire. Still waiting for an important Hammer film on Blu.

I figure Optimum will do these new Hammers up right, based on how excellent QUATERMASS & THE PIT turned out.

the ANchor Bay DVD of this is one of the worst quality DVDs I have (althogh it's not as bad as thier release of Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires), so I'll be glad for an upgrade. Got some nice extras on it though, including a really good commentary track. Be nice if they can port these across to the BD.
With any luck the coverart for the BD will be nice too, even by early Anchor Bay standards the one they gave it was bad.

I think this is one of the better Hammer Dracula movies. I like the character of Father Sandor. I own most of the Hammer films released on DVD. I would upgrade many of them given the chance.

Read that ... found it by googling recently. For Horror of Dracula on blu, I'd get a region free blu ray player (am in the states).

Oh man, Horror of Dracula is what I'd really, really go for. The BFI should release it in a spectacular Criterion-quality package, like they did with The Innocents (get some interviews and stuff out of Chris Lee before he pops off, touch wood). It would make a nice packet of money for them too, which they can use to fund restoration of more obscure projects

i used to live by the mausoleum they used for filming the ending of this film. It's quite a sight, on top of the big hill overlooking West Wycombe (where most of Fulci's Black Cat was shot incidentally), and they light it up at night so you can see it from quite a distance away.
I shot some footage there a couple of years ago for a horror documentary. No real reason, but we were passing it, and thought we'd stop off and use it as a background for an interview as it looks so good on camera.

TTDAD is quite and underrated film in my opinion. The lame ending that lets it down always seems to overshadow the pretty decent film that takes place before it.

its worth picking up the Hammer Horror Series DVD set from Universal. You get some great films, including Brides of Dracula, very cheaply, and the quality's pretty good as well.
