DVD News 03.03.05

 The Hammer adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera starring Herbert Lom and directed by Terence Fisher, previously only available on laserdisc and vhs, and long deleted, finally makes its way to dvd this May. It appears the Universal Pictures Video will be releasing the film in the UK, to co-incide with the dvd debut of the recent Andrew Lloyd-Webber musical adaptation. This will be the first of the Hammer films, whose rights are held by Universal, to be released on dvd.

We are currently awaiting confirmation of details, but it looks likely that the disc will be available from 2nd May. More as we get it.
