If like me you love a good Hammer film then you are in luck this October as Indicator will be releasing a Hammer Films Blu-ray boxset. Powerhouse Film’s Indicator label is fast becoming my favourite company for releasing quality blu-rays. Not only are they selecting films I’m interested but they tend to come with excellent picture quality which is the main reason for buying films I may already own on other formats again.
The Hammer films Blu-ray boxset includes the following titles:
- Maniac (1963)
- The Gorgon (1964)
- The Curse of The Mummy’s Tomb (1964)
- Fanatic (1965)
The news just get better as this is merely volume one, so hopefully there will be some concrete information on volume two soon.
If you are looking forward to this release you can pick it up on from either Amazon.co.uk or from Powerhouse Film’s website. The release date is currently down for an 16th October 2017 release in time for a Halloween film fest!
Other Indicator Blu-ray releases due out this October include John Carpenter’s Christine (1983) which is out very soon in fact, 2nd October 2017.
I guessing if you love Hammer horror films like me you may also love Amicus Productions output. For those that do you are in for a treat as Indicator are releasing the British horror Torture Garden (1967) starring Jack Palance, Burgess Meredith, Beverly Adams & Peter Cushing.
To round off Indicator’s excellent October Blu-ray line-up comes the British thriller Fragment of Fear (1970) that stars David Hemmings.
Looking at Studiocanal’s October offering reveals they to have four Hammer titles coming out on the 30th October 2017. They include Blood From The Mummy’s Tomb (1971), Demons Of The Mind (1972), Fear In The Night (1972) & Scars Of Dracula (1970). There were several more titles due out in November but the release date seems to have slipped back to the end of January next year.

- Is MoviePass the future of cinema?
- Psycho II (1983) Blu-ray Review
- The Anderson Tapes (1971) Blu-ray Review

But the fabulous news doesn’t end there as Network look to get in on the act by releasing the complete television series of the Hammer House of Horror on Blu-ray. So you can now look forward to watching them with excellent picture quality as they have been fully restored. The release date for this TV classic is 23rd October 2017.
I simply cannot wait for October to arrive, what a truly outstanding month of Blu-ray releases. Keep an eye out for the reviews I’ll try and get those up sooner rather than later depending upon when I can obtain copies of all of the releases. I’ll try and check out the Hammer Films Blu-ray boxset first if possible. This could prove to be a very expensive month!
