Masters of Horror Vol.1 (R2) in March
Anchor Bay have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Masters of Horror Volume 1 for 13th March 2006 priced at £19.99. Representing a major television event in the US when it began broadcasting on Showtime in October 2005, the MASTERS OF HORROR series is the brainchild of director Mick Garris (The Stand; The Shining). To direct the series of 13 brand-new, one-hour films, Garris has gathered together an astonishing roster of major names from the horror genre – names that include John Carpenter (The Fog; Halloween), Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep; the Phantasm series), Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist; The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), Dario Argento (Suspiria; Tenebrae), Joe Dante (Gremlins; The Howling), John Landis (Innocent Blood; An American Werewolf In London), Stuart Gordon (From Beyond; Re-Animator), Larry Cohen (Q: The Winged Serpent; It's Alive), Lucky McKee (The Woods; May), John McNaughton (Wild Things; Henry; Portrait Of A Serial Killer), William Malone (FeardotCom; House On Haunted Hill), Takashi Miike (One Missed Call; Ichi The Killer) and Garris himself.
Scheduled to be released on a monthly basis beginning in March 2006, each volume will be a two-disc edition featuring two films from the series, both packed with a host of exclusive extra features including interviews with the directors, audio commentaries, behind the scenes featurettes and much more.
The first MASTERS OF HORROR release will include John Carpenter's Cigarette Burns, a supernatural chiller that looks at the dark power and influence of cinema, and Stuart Gordon's Dream In The Witch House, a diabolical tale of madness based on a short story by legendary horror writer H.P. Lovecraft.
As Executive Producer of MASTERS OF HORROR, it was Garris's intention to provide the opportunity for the world's leading horror directors to make the films they wanted to make, on their own terms, with no artistic restrictions and no studio interference. The results speak for themselves, with a cutting-edge horror series that pulls no punches when it comes to graphic imagery and edge-of-the-seat terror.
British horror fans will get their first chance to witness this groundbreaking horror series when Bravo Television hosts an exclusive premier UK broadcast of the show every Friday at 11 p.m beginning, appropriately, on Friday, 13th January.
