Just in time to offer horror fans hope of a spooky future beyond the Halloween season, Severin Films is proud to announce the December 5th 2017 release of The Amicus Collection: a terrorizing triple feature of ghastly tales from the twisted side of the Thames, newly remastered and packed to the brim with special features.
Known as ‘The Studio That Dripped Blood’, the British film company Amicus Productions – founded by American writer/producers Max J. Rosenberg and Milton Subotsky – built a legacy of horror anthologies and twisted thrillers that remains among the very best genre movies of the ‘70s. In this trio of Amicus classics – featuring stars that include Peter Cushing, Herbert Lom, Britt Ekland, Patrick Magee, Stephanie Beacham, Calvin Lockhart, Michael Gambon and Charlotte Rampling – you’ll discover the studio’s legendary portmanteau ASYLUM, their insane gothic shocker AND NOW THE SCREAMING STARTS, and – exclusive to this set – the infamous werewolf whodunit THE BEAST MUST DIE, as well as a Bonus Disc of Amicus trailers, TV commercials, rare interviews and more.
The Amicus Collection is a limited, numbered edition release of only 3500 units. To celebrate the momentous reintroduction of these classics, a special Amicus Bundle will be available from the Severin webstore, which includes a set of four Amicus enamel pins (designed by Pseudo Ludo), a T-Shirt and framed picture featuring brand new Amicus artwork, and “Amicus: The Friendly Face of Fear” book.
