    Thanks. Thankfully I ordered this months after its release and received the corrected version.

    The guys at DVD Drive-In and Diabolique Magazine have put together a petition in an attempt to convince Warner Bros. to release their Hammer Films holdings, including initial series installments in their Dracula, Frankenstein and Mummy franchises and later entries like TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA (1970) and FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED (1969). So swing by and sign up -- it only takes a minute, and it's for a good cause!

    Really wish someone, anyone, would give us a BD release of The Devil Rides Out that hasn't been messed with like the UK release!

    Sven signed up! Nice. I'm surprised he didn't put Berwyn, IL though!

    Without any solid details I think I'll bump this thread:

    Hammer has been suspiciously absent from Warner's release windows these past few years (considering Hammer's UK press releases almost always touted Warner's involvement). My concern has always been that Hammer's lackluster work is to blame and my hope has been Warner was slowly but surely working on their own genuine restorations.

    Word is a four film Hammer Blu-ray boxset is in the works. Which makes the math hard. Either we're getting Frankenstein/Dracula/Mummy/??? or perhaps Frankenstein/Dracula/Dracula Has Risen from the Grave/Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed. But Mummy is already through the wringer in the UK so that makes the most sense.

    I hope Doctor X is on slate too, especially if they included the B&W alternate version (even if just in SD).

    If a 4 film Hammer set is on the way then I'm betting it will be an HD upgraded version of their 4 Film Favorite Dracula dvd release. Then we might see a double release for the 2 Frankenstein's they have rights to and a standalone Mummy at some point.
