Preview- The Beast Must Die (Limited Edition Bluray)

The last of Amicus’ famed horror productions, The Beast Must Die combines the country-house whodunnit with the werewolf movie – with a dash of blaxploitation.

In the movie Calvin Lockhart (A Dandy in Aspic) and Marlene Clark (Ganja & Hess) have invited a disparate group of guests, including Peter Cushing (Corruption), Michael Gambon (The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover) and Charles Gray (The Legacy), to their mansion in the English countryside.

He believes one of them is a werewolf… and before the weekend is out, he’ll find out who!

You can pre-order HERE.
