Don't you just love Blue Underground? Almost unrivalled in their special treatment of classic film DVD reissues, they have now just announced a 5-disc limited edition DVD release of The Blind Dead Collection (1971-76), totally uncut and uncensored for the first time ever.
They are called The Blind Dead, heretic horsemen whose eyes were burned out to prevent them from finding their way back from Hell.
Over the course of 4 unforgettable films, writer/director Amando de Ossorio created what fright fans worldwide consider to be one of the most startling series in horror history.
This unique quartet of shockers delivers a relentless onslaught of creepy atmosphere, shocking violence, forbidden sexuality, and the still-chilling icons of EuroHorror: The eyeless undead who hunt by sound in their quest for human flesh.
Blue Underground is now presenting the definitive editions of these four long-unseen classics, now fully restored from original vault materials and remastered in heart-stopping high definition. This Limited Edition Collection also contains an exclusive Bonus Disc of interviews with the late Amando de Ossorio, a collectable booklet, all packaged in a killer coffin-shaped box!
