Severin Films is pleased to announce the Blu-ray debut of 70s terror classic Horror Express starring genre titans Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing with an unforgettable supporting turn from Telly ‘Kojak’ Savalas. Loved by fans and critics alike this gory masterpiece has been transferred in hi-definition from the original camera negative and is packed with exclusive new special features as well as the first in-depth interview with Cushing ever to emerge on disc, unearthed from a British archive. The film will be released as a Blu-Ray/DVD 2-disc combo pack on November 29.
Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing star as rival turn-of-the-century anthropologists transporting a frozen ‘missing link’ aboard the Trans-Siberian Express. But when the prehistoric creature thaws and escapes, it unleashes a brain-scarfing spree that turns its victims into the eye-bleeding undead. Can the crafty colleagues stop this two million year old monster, hordes of zombie passengers and a psychotic Cossack officer (Telly Savalas) before terror goes off the rails? Silvia Tortosa (WHEN THE SCREAMING STOPS) co-stars in this all-time fright favorite from director Eugenio Martín and the blacklisted Hollywood screenwriters of PSYCHOMANIA.
Special Features: Murder On The Trans-Siberian Express: New Interview With Director Eugenio Martin, Notes From The Blacklist: Producer Bernard Gordon Discusses The McCarthy Era, 1973 Audio Interview With Peter Cushing, Telly And Me: New Interview With Composer John Cacavas, Introduction by Fangoria Editor Chris Alexander and Theatrical Trailer.
