Masters Of Horror Series 1 Vol.1 in October

Anchor Bay have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Masters Of Horror Series 1 - Volume 1 for 23rd October 2006 priced at £24.99. Representing a major television event in the US when it began broadcasting on Showtime in October 2005, the 13-episode Masters of Horror series is the brainchild of director Mick Garris. As Executive Producer of the series, 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.

Anchor Bay initially planned to release the 13 short films here in the UK as a series of double-features but, after the first volume was released (reviewed here) these plans changed and now - after a lengthy delay - the 13 films will be released across two box sets.

Volume 1 includes seven complete episodes from the series: Cigarette Burns (John Carpenter), Incident On And Off A Mountain Road (Don Coscarelli), Homecoming (Joe Dante), Chocolate (Mick Garris), Dreams In The Witch House (Stuart Gordon), Deer Woman (John Landis) and Sick Girl (Lucky McKee).

Each of the seven discs in the boxed set comes packed with a host of extra features, including audio commentaries, interviews with the directors and stars, "making of" featurettes, director biographies and much more.
Volume 2 is due in early 2007.
