Manny P. here…

The Roger Corman Horror Classics Collection from Film Chest Media Group not only gives you three of Corman’s most popular movies, but you get them in high definition. Taken from the original 35mm prints, these digitally restored widescreen versions look and sound better than ever before. You can check out the before-and-after restoration demo included on the bonus features.

   The chills included in this collection are:
~ A Bucket of Blood (1959) – A torrid tale of a frustrated waiter at a beatnik cafe who accidentally kills his landlady’s cat. When he tries to hide the body in plaster, he is mistaken as a brilliant sculptor with more requests for suspiciously lifelike work.
~ Dementia 13 (1963) – a recently widowed woman travels to Ireland, where she finds herself trapped in a creepy, decrepit castle with her ex-husband’s demented family. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
~ The Terror (1963) – A soldier from Napoleon-era, 19th century France finds that nothing is what it seems in a ghostly, haunted mansion of death. Co-directed by Roger Corman and Francis Ford Coppola. Starring Jack Nicholson and Boris Karloff.
   Roger Corman’s Horror Classics: Vol. 1 is presented in widescreen with an aspect ratio of 16×9 and 5.1 stereo (except A Bucket of Blood, which is mono). For all Corman fans, this is just in time for Halloween.
Until next time>                               “never forget”
