(October 29, 2008 – Burbank, CA) – Horror fans will have something new to scream about when Warner Home Video debuts “Warner Bros. Horror Double Features” December 9, a ‘terror two-fer’ of classic horror films never before seen on DVD. The four classic titles on two double-feature discs are “The Shuttered Room” / “It!” and “Chamber of Horrors” / “The Brides of Fu Manchu.” Each double feature disc will be available for $19.98 SRP. Orders are due November 4. “The Shuttered Room” (1967) / “It!” (1966) “The Shuttered Room” is a gothic thriller starring Carol Lynley and Gig Young as a couple visiting the New England millhouse they inherited. In their eagerness to explore, they disregard the warnings of the very strange locals and are faced with mystery and madness. When a fire destroys a section of a London Museum only one statue survives. It is a mystical monster created by a 16th century rabbi that seems to have the power to withstand all attempts at destruction. Roddy McDowall (“Planet of the Apes”) stars in “It!” as a museum assistant who hopes to use the creature to do his bidding. “Chamber of Horrors” (1966) / “The Brides of Fu Manchu” (1966 ) “Chamber of Horrors” is a film so scary that special on-screen devices called The Fear Flasher (visual warning) and Horror Horn (audible warning) are included to warn viewers of the most horrific moments. Patrick O’Neal stars as a one-handed maniac on a death spree who utilizes specially designed tools to chop, rip and skewer those who he believes have wronged him. “The Brides of Fu Manchu” is the second in a series of five “Fu Manchu” films about the Asian villain Fu Manchu attempting to stay one step ahead of his Scotland Yard adversary. This time, in another attempt at world domination, Fu Manchu and his henchmen kidnap daughters of the world’s leading scientists, demanding they build him a death-ray weapon or the girls will die. Hammer Films icon Christopher Lee portrays the mastermind of terror. With operations in 90 international territories, Warner Home Video, a Warner Bros.
