A pictorial of the new collection honoring the horror legend, packed with five films, a TV anthology series, a CD soundtrack, and numerous extras
New on Blu-ray from Severin, the “Eurocypt of Christopher Lee” collection is an incredible box set featuring several rare films and a television series in stunning presentations (each featuring 2K or 4K restorations), along with numerous bonus features. It’s an assemblage of pretty exclusive and elusive material: Many of these titles are getting their first proper home video release, unavailable on DVD, or only in extremely poor quality or compromised editions.
Here’s our comprehensive pictorial of the box set and everything in it.
The contents are encased in a rigidly constructed topload-style box with a removable lid.
Christopher Lee: The Continental Connection by Jonathan Rigby, illustrated throughout with international photos and artwork in both full color and black and white.
The movies (and television program) are packaged in 6 black Blu-ray cases. Extras vary from slim to generous, but all titles include at least one bonus feature, at minimum a promo, trailer, or commentary.
Castle of the Living Dead
In addition to the Blu-ray, this package also includes a CD soundtrack, the tracklist of which is printed on an insert card.
Challenge the Devil + “Relics from the Crypt”
The “Relics from the Crypt” bonus features disc shares a case with the Challenge the Devil Blu-ray, along with an insert listing its contents. (If you’re like me, you’ll immediately feel compelled to swap the placement of these discs).
Crypt of the Vampire
Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace
Theatre Macabre (TV Anthology)
The Torture Chamber of Dr Sadism
