One of the most highly anticipated horror DVD releases of 2006, Masters of Horror makes its debut on 13th March courtesy of Anchor Bay UK.
Representing a major television event in the US when it began broadcasting on Showtime in October 2005, the Masters of Horror series is the brainchild of director Mick Garris (The Stand; The Shining). To direct the series of 13 brand-new, one-hour films, Garris has gathered together an astonishing roster of major names from the horror genre - names that include John Carpenter (The Fog; Halloween), Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep; the Phantasm series), Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist; The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), Dario Argento (Suspiria; Tenebrae), Joe Dante (Gremlins; The Howling), John Landis (Innocent Blood; An American Werewolf In London), Stuart Gordon (From Beyond; Re-Animator), Larry Cohen (Q: The Winged Serpent; It's Alive), Lucky McKee (The Woods; May), John McNaughton (Wild Things; Henry; Portrait Of A Serial Killer), William Malone (FeardotCom; House On Haunted Hill), Takashi Miike (One Missed Call; Ichi The Killer) and Garris himself.
Scheduled to be released on a bi-monthly basis beginning in March 2006, each volume will be a two-disc edition featuring two films from the series, both packed with a host of exclusive extra features including interviews with the directors, audio commentaries, behind the scenes featurettes and much more. This first release will include John Carpenter's Cigarette Burns, a supernatural chiller that looks at the dark power and influence of cinema, and Stuart Gordon's Dream In The Witch House, a diabolical tale of madness based on a short story by legendary horror writer H.P. Lovecraft.
And we've got 3 copies of that first release to give away, if you can answer the question below. As usual, we'll pick 3 winners at random in a weeks time, and this comp is only open to UK residents of 18 years or over.
