Fox Horror Classics Vol. 2 (R1) in September - Artwork added

News
Fox Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Fox Horror Classics Volume 2 on 9th September 2008 priced at $19.98 SRP. Part of the Fox Cinema Classics Collection this set features three horror classics with performances from menacing horror icons Bela Lugosi and Vincent Price, plus the smouldering Gene Tierney, among others.

Based on the addictively popular radio serial, Chandu The Magician (1932) stars the legendary Lugosi in a stunningly photographed thriller about an ingenious inventor with plans to dominate the human race – at all costs. In Dr. Renault’s Secret (1942), a scientist’s remote villa in the French countryside leads to a forbidden terror for anyone who encounters it. And lastly, multiple Academy Award-winner Joseph Mankiewicz directs an all-star cast of Hollywood legends, including Gene Tierney, Walter Huston and Vincent Price in Dragonwyck (1946), an atmospheric tale of gothic secrets and forbidden love.

Each title has been restored and remastered and features in-depth bonus materials including behind-the-scenes featurettes, restoration comparisons, trailers and more.

He doesn't contribute reviews anywhere near as much as he once did (or indeed would like to) but when he does it will invariably be something in the anime or Asian film area.
