This has always been one of my favorite Hammer films, it is just a ton of fun to watch, as you can see from the above trailer. Anytime I can get a 4K transfer of a classic Peter Cushing Hammer film is alright in my book. You can preorder this release now here, and Scream Factory is including print of the new cover art while supplies last if you order from them.
