The Premature Burial [DVD]
The Premature Burial [DVD]
Dvd ~ Ray Milland
Price: £10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars classic horror from the sixties: now for the first time ..., 19 May 2015

This review is from: The Premature Burial [DVD] (DVD)
another gem from final cut entertainment,you know the story,thats why you are considering buying this dvd so I will not bore you with another film review to which a few reviewers have already done a good job, now for the news that collectors like me really want to know, final cut have restored the original "the premature burial" main title which has been missing from all previous prints until now, the print is anamorphic widescreen,picture quality is good ,colour is good,sad to say the original trailer is not included for some reason,as this has in most cases been included in most if not all previous releases. as with this title, final cut also restored the original title of hammer films "captain clegg" to its release of "captain clegg" ( this film was always released with the American title "night creatures" ) congratulations to final cut for the restoration of the original uk title credits,but a slap on the hands for no trailers which would have been great for collectors like myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars size does matter!!, 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
at long last warners three dimensional masterpiece is now available on blu ray for the first time but warners have not included a standard dvd with its blu ray as is now the norm,for the price this gem costs you would have thought they would have done so,but alas no! sad to report also that warners have issued this film in its original academy format which means black bars on both sides of the picture which i dislike very much,having said that,its nice to have it in my collection but at the same time a bit of a let down.the box cover artwork is in 3d and is one of the best i have come across,it looks stunning,well done warners,but for my money i would have liked a full screen picture.

3.0 out of 5 stars cinemascope,you see it with glasses!!, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
watch out collectors,this is a beautiful print but the original cinemascope widescreen is not anamorphic but full narrow widescreen which is odd because a few years ago cinema club released this film in anamorphic widescreen,with a very nice picture and sound quality.this network release has the original hypnovista introduction and trailer which is always a welcome sight for the collector,a must have for 60s exploitation horror collectors but for me in this day and age anamorphic widescreen is a must have.the cinema club version is the better of the two if you can get hold of it, but does not include the hypnovista introduction,the trailer is also included.

This review is from: Baron Blood [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
now from the team who gave you "black sunday"and "black sabbath"comes"barron blood"in all its glory bavas final nod to the classic horror movies of the fifties and sixties,contained in this collectors item are both the original and american international versions,original colour and picture restorations on both versions,the money has been well spent and is up there on the screen for all to see.arrow have spared no expence to produce another great collectors item,included in this set is a very informative booklet with great background information on the stars and the making of the movie,included are trailers for the film.fans will not be disapointed,as with all dvds in arrows mario bava collection the whole package is exeptionaly well done,and a must have.highly recommended.

arrow have done it again,this is what the fans,and serious collectors have been waiting for,and boy o boy was it worth the wait. arrow have not only given us the original film,but the long awaited american international version as well,the picture quality on both versions is stunning,the colour or color if you live in the u.s has been restored to its original splendor,the booklet which is included gives the fans all the bacground information you will ever need and more.look no further,this is the finest example [along with black sunday,baron blood,in the collection] you will ever find to date,and i give you my word that this is worth every penny of your money.arrow are certainly on target with this and others in the mario bava collection,the cover artwork as with others in this collection is reversable,with original artwork on the reverse and new artwork on the front which compliments the films,this and others in the bava collection has been done by people who know what the fans and serious collectors realy want,and have done it with great care and attention to detail.very highly recommended.arrow are on target

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
as with all of hemlocks publications,the presentation is is very well done but alas on this occasion the contents was in my oppinion a bit of a let down,there is not much here that i did not already know,somehow it was lacking in something,or my expectations was a little higher than usual,whatever,slightly dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars titter ye not,for i have a tale to tell !!, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
at last,on dvd frankie howards finest,the house in nightmare park is a wonderfull spoof on horror movies,you wont find better than this,the film also stars vetran ray milland along with great support from the likes of hugh "the mind of mr j.g reader"burden and other well known faces,the great thing about this film is it takes itself very seriously,and would have worked very well as a horror movie in its own right,but add a touch of frankie howard,a dash of ray milland,and a seasoning of comedy,and sit down to a very enjoyable movie,highly recommended.
