Last year, Diabolique Magazine, in conjunction with dvddrive-in.com coordinated an online petition to ask Warner Bros to release their classic Hammer Horror titles on blu-ray. Yesterday, the official announcement was finally made, and the initial set of titles is scheduled for release this October. This will include:
- Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed
- Dracula Has Risen From the Grave
- The Mummy
- Taste the Blood of Dracula
In speaking with Warner Bros, we were told that the petition was “of significant importance,” in getting these titles out on BD. We would therefore like to thank everyone who signed, and who helped to promote the petition. Never let it be said that grassroots efforts don’t work. We would also like to thank Warner Bros for being responsive to its customers.
