We've known that Synapse Films had plans to release Hammer House of Horror since 2010, but it is now official and will be released later this year. The complete 13-episode TV series will be available in a 5-DVD set on September 11th. According to Fangoria, the episodes will be presented in their original airdate order and are completely uncut:
"Produced in 1980, HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR consisted of 13 episodes shot at Hampden Manor House in the heart of England, with directors including Hammer vets Peter Sasdy and Alan Gibson and featuring actors such as Peter Cushing, Pierce Brosnan, Brian Cox and Denholm Elliott. Synapse’s five-DVD set will present the episodes in original airdate order, uncut with all the nudity and violence intact, presented in the original 1.33:1 broadcast aspect ratio."
The DVD set will sell for $39.95 and we've included a look at the cover art below. Here is a list of bonus features:
