When updated info comes in I'll put it either here in the comments section or just update the post itself. I imagine though that both films would have at least the same type of typical trailer and stills gallery extra features as other Amicus DVD releases currently available (like Torture Garden, House That Dripped Blood, Asylum, Monster Club, And Now the Screaming Starts etc...) we'll just have to wait and see. Let's keep our fingers crossed for anamorphic widescreen transfers!

This is hands down the best double feature that you could want. Two of the best anthology flicks for one low low price

Will they(or have they?)ever released DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS?,thats one of my favorite movies,silly as it seems,I still get chills during the vine segment,because when I watched it,a tree broke through my window because of a storm,that kind of experience would make ANY movie scary,unless it was made by Ed Wood.

Dr. Terror has not yet been released in the US on DVD, hopefully soon though. From Beyond the Grave is coming this September though which is great too and also an anthology type British horror film.

Perhaps you'd find Ed Wood more scary if say someone had thrown a rubber octopus through your window while watching Bride of the Monster sometime in your life?
