    God, I wish our local studios would care about their Hammer movies more.

    That is an awesome cover!

    It seems that the floodgates for high def Hammer are opening pretty quickly this year!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-16629619

    "More than 30 films will be resurrected, with several gaining new or extended scenes that were cut from the original. Among them is Terence Fisher's Dracula, which will incorporate a recently-discovered extended death scene considered too gruesome in 1958."

    More here.

    And the extras for the Dracula POD Blu-ray are:

    "Secondly, STUDIOCANAL have recently announced their second restored Hammer title coming to Region B Blu-ray (on March 5th). This is the chilling DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS, restored at Pinewood from a two-perf original cut negative (OCN), scanned at 4k and restored in 2k. DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS will be presented in all its TECHNISCOPE glory, in the original aspect ratio of 2.35:1. And if that isn’t enough, Pinewood have restored the original UK title cards to the film! On top of all that, official Hammer historian Marcus Hearn has produced an all-new half-hour documentary specially for this edition, featuring Barbara Shelley, Francis Matthews, Mark Gatiss, Jonathan Rigby and others"

    Hollywood Reporter has info too.

    "The partnership continues throughout the spring for the releases of The Reptile and The Plague of The Zombies, and will also include The Devil Rides Out, Rasputin the Mad Monk and The Mummy’s Shroud during the course of the year.

    Hammer will also release definitive versions of a trio of famous titles in the U.K.: The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Mummy.
    As well as featuring a fully-restored HD picture and restored sound, the re-mastered films will include newly-filmed extras, including interviews with cast members, the partners said.

    The documentary extras are being produced by Hammer expert and historian, Marcus Hearn – author of the recent “The Hammer Vault”."

    Not so far, nope. At least there's no official word that I've heard. I guess it'll depend on the individual studios who own the US rights if it happens or not.

    Either way, I'm region free so I'm all over these

    Some pretty slick looking screen caps from the Dracula Prince Of Darkness Blu-ray have made an appearance at The Digital Fix.

    Those look pretty impressive.
