Never released in anamorphic widescreen on DVD, 1972's "Horror Express" will finally get a Blu-Ray release courtesy of Severin Films on September 27.
Fangoria reports that Severin is mastering the 1080p Blu-Ray from the film's original negative! So expectations should be high.
"Horror Express" is an excellent, high quality sci-fi zombie film featuring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing (both) as British nationals on the Orient Express. This Spanish production is one of the most entertaining and well-plotted horror films of the 1970s, boasts great acting, plenty of gruesome gore and—best yet—Telly Savalas as a womanizing Cossack officer.
