Posted Tue Feb 16, 2016 at 06:00 AM PST by

Both 1960s films featuring Christopher Lee are headed for Blu-ray in June.

In an early announcement to retailers, Blue Underground says 'Circus of Fear / Five Golden Dragons' will arrive on Blu-ray on June 28.

Circus of Fear -- What begins as a daring daylight armored car heist on London's Tower Bridge leads to a sinister circus where a disfigured lion tamer (Christopher Lee) is one of several suspects in a three-ring nightmare of red herrings, grisly 'accidents' and cold-blooded murder. Klaus Kinski (Venom), Suzy Kendall (Bird With the Crystal Plumage), Margaret Lee (Eugenie) and Leo Genn (The Bloody Judge) co-star in this gripping thriller directed by John Moxey (Horror Hotel, The Night Stalker) and based on the novel by legendary mystery writer Edgar Wallace.

Five Golden Dragons -- Hitchcock hero Robert Cummings stars in this exotic British feature from 1967, adapting one of Edgar Wallace's celebrated Commissioner Sanders stories. Directed by ITC stalwart Jeremy Summers and produced by B-movie legend Harry Alan Towers, Five Golden Dragons combines glamorous locations, gorgeous girls, mystery, action and plenty of humor, with Christopher Lee, George Raft and Brian Donlevy among the villainous 'dragons' encountered.

Bob Mitchell, an American playboy newly arrived in Hong Kong, is the recipient of an enigmatic written message, found on the body of a dead man. The message reads simply: 'Five Golden Dragons'. It is Mitchell's introduction to an illicit gold-trafficking operation, and he soon finds himself in the midst of a power struggle between a secretive global crime syndicate and brutal local mobsters...

No other details have been released at this time.
