Next stop, cannibalism! The subway tunnels below London are home to flesh-eating horrors in Death Line, aka Raw Meat. Featuring Donald Pleasence and Christopher Lee, a new 2K restoration of the 1972 film will be released on a special Blu-ray / DVD Collector's Edition from Blue Underground early next year.

From Blue Underground"We promised a new title announcement this week, so here it is: We're excited to bring Gary Sherman's DEATH LINE (aka RAW MEAT) to Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in the world! We're doing a new 2K restoration from the original uncut British negative, supervised by Sherman. The Blu-ray will be loaded with new interviews, audio commentary, and more. Includes reversible sleeve with DEATH LINE artwork (front) and classic RAW MEAT theatrical art (reverse). We're shooting for an early 2017 release. Until then, mind the doors..."

Synopsis (via "For generations they've lingered beneath the streets of London. But now their last survivor has emerged, driven by a desperate hunger for human flesh! Donald Pleasence stars in this daring horror classic that dishes out heart-stopping jolts and hair-raising thrills! When a prominent politician and a beautiful young woman vanish inside a London subway station, Scotland Yard's Inspector Calhoun (Pleasence) investigates and makes a horrifying discovery. Not only did a group of 19th-century tunnel workers survive a cave-in, but they lived for years in a secret underground enclave by consuming the flesh of their own dead. Now the lone descendant of this grisly tribe has surfaced, prowling the streets of London for fresh victims...and a new mate."
