I just pulled out my DVD of Hammer’s PIRATES OF BLOOD RIVER last night and watched it through, finding it an eminently entertaining film with a very good transfer. Well-acted, great cast, nice music score, pleasant visuals, etc. And wow, Christopher Lee looks great in black! Tonight I will listen to the commentary track. I suspect that this and DEVIL SHIP PIRATES and a couple more of the adventure series will appear on a future Indicator box set. (I also suspect a future Hammer box from them will contain the sci-fi titles such as THESE ARE THE DAMNED…hope they can go beyond the Columbia titles and include X-THE UNKNOWN and QUATERMASS II, neither of which have been released on true 1080p Blu-ray anywhere in the world).
Most Hammer fans do not think of the adventure/oriental thriller (TERROR OF THE TONGS, STRANGLERS OF BOMBAY) films to be on the same level as its horror titles, but some of them certainly rival many of the 70’s horror titles. The suspense box that includes CASH ON...
