Anchor Bay Entertainment, a division of Starz Home Entertainment and the acknowledged leader in horror DVD programming, announces the recent milestone of shipping one million units of the Emmy™-Award winning Masters of Horror anthology series. The announcement comes on the heels of the final DVD release from Season One - William Malone's The Fair Haired Child debuting December 12th.
The innovative, thirteen-installment series has taken the horror genre to new creative and commercial heights. Available on DVD since March, each one-hour Masters of Horror film elevates the genre to a new standard in terror, written and directed by many of the genre's leading practitioners.
"We at Starz Home Entertainment are extremely gratified that consumers have made Masters of Horror an integral part of their home entertainment libraries," observed Bill Clark, Executive Vice President and General Manager.
The executive producers of Masters Of Horror are Starz Media's John W. Hyde, Industry Entertainment's Keith Addis and Andrew Deane, and Nice Guy Productions' Mick Garris. Reunion Pictures' Lisa Richardson and Tom Rowe are also producers. Industry's Adam Goldworm and Ben Browning are co-producers.
"I'm thrilled to see that Masters of Horror is filling the appetite the fans have for original horror, made by people who love and know it best," said Mick Garris, series creator and Executive Producer. "We hoped that if we could present the horror audience with films that were free of studio and network intervention, that we could provide them a great variety of fear in all its forms, they would respond. And it seems to be working, all around the world."
