Masters of Horror Season 1 now all available on DVD
13th Jan 07
Some people rate them, some really slagged them off, but whatever you think of Mick Garris’ Masters of Horror collection, you’ve got to admit that it’s such a great idea. Well now the complete first season is available in 2 DVD box sets, so you can go and judge for yourself! And, of course, both sets come packed with behind the scenes extras and special features, so you’d really be crazy to miss out on this opportunity.
Admittedly, Volume 1 came out near the end of last year and in all the frenzy of Christmas we let this one slip, but we’re telling you all about it now so better late than never, eh? And to make up for it we’re also going to be giving away a copy of the volume 2 box set in a competition closer to the set’s release date.
So keep your eyes open for that one, and in the meantime how good is your French accent when you say “La Fin Absolute du Monde”?
