Warner Bros. is bringing four classic horror films to DVD for the first time in two double-feature releases. The Shuttered Room/It! and Chambers of Horror/The Brides of Fu Manchu will be released on DVD on December 9. Each of these double-features will be priced at $19.98 SRP, but no special features will be available on the discs. Take a look at the cover art and synopses for these horror films making their DVD debuts.
The Shuttered Room is a gothic thriller starring Carol Lynley and Gig Young as a couple visiting the New England millhouse they inherited. In their eagerness to explore, they disregard the warnings of the very strange locals and are faced with mystery and madness.
When a fire destroys a section of a London Museum only one statue survives. It is a mystical monster created by a 16th century rabbi that seems to have the power to withstand all attempts at destruction. Roddy McDowall (Planet of the Apes) stars in It! as a museum assistant who hopes to use the creature to do his bidding.
Chamber of Horrors is a film so scary that special on-screen devices called The Fear Flasher (visual warning) and Horror Horn (audible warning) are included to warn viewers of the most horrific moments. Patrick O'Neal stars as a one-handed maniac on a death spree who utilizes specially designed tools to chop, rip and skewer those who he believes have wronged him.
The Brides of Fu Manchu is the second in a series of five Fu Manchu films about the Asian villain Fu Manchu attempting to stay one step ahead of his Scotland Yard adversary. This time, in another attempt at world domination, Fu Manchu and his henchmen kidnap daughters of the world's leading scientists, demanding they build him a death-ray weapon or the girls will die. Hammer Films icon Christopher Lee portrays the mastermind of terror.
