THE DOCTOR AND THE DEVILS Coming To Blu-ray November 14th from Scream Factory

I love Freddie Francis. Who is that you might ask? He directed a little movie called Dr. Terror's House of Horrors. Obviously I am a fan of said movie, but he also worked on other Amicus projects including Tales from the Crypt (coming from Scream Factory along with its counterpart The Vault of Horror soon). We have full details on the upcoming release of The Doctor and The Devils a movie also directed by Freddie Francis. 

I have not seen this movie, but I am extremely excited to check it out. Timothy Dalton. Twiggy? Patrick Stewart!

November 14th you'll have the chance to check out a classic piece of horror by a director who worked on Hammer monsters and portmanteaus from one of the best horror houses in cinema history.

Murder was just the beginning...



Los Angeles, CA – A man of medicine… A pair of murderers… An unholy alliance. Scream Factory has announced a November 14Blu-ray release of the murderous thriller The Doctor and the Devils.



Directed by Freddie Francis, Executive Produced by Mel Brooks, and based on DylanThomas' original screenplay, this shocking horror-thriller stars Timothy Dalton as Thomas Rock, a brilliant young anatomy professor in 1820s Edinburgh. At first accepting only the cadavers provided him for study – those of a few hanged criminals per year – Rock eventually recruits two grave robbers (Jonathan Pryce and Stephen Rea) to secure a better supply of corpses. Coming to the gory conclusion that they will earn more the "fresher" the corpses, the two begin committing murder and delivering warm bodies to the doctor's lecture chambers. Also starring Julian Sands, Patrick Stewart and Twiggy, The Doctor and the Devils brings classic chills from start to finish.
