Posted Mon Jul 8, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The Hammer horror comes out of the coffin and onto Blu-ray this September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Millennium Entertainment will release 'Dracula: Prince of Darkness' on Blu-ray on September 3.

In this sequel to 'Dracula' (1958), four English tourists are holidaying in the Carpathians when they meet the unconventional Father Sandor (Andrew Keir) at an inn. He warns them to avoid the local castle if they value their lives, but the next day the quartet find themselves stranded in the mountains after their driver abandons them. When a driverless carriage arrives they board it, intending to travel to the nearest village. However, the carriage instead takes them to the very castle which Sandor warned them against, where they are welcomed by Klove (Philip Latham), sinister manservant of Count Dracula (Christopher Lee)...

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Audio commentary with Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, Suzan Farmer and Francis Matthews; Exclusive still gallery (NEVER BEFORE RELEASED!); Restored original trailer; Dracula: Prince of Darkness restoration comparison; Super 8MM behind-the-scenes footage; Brand new documentary- "Back to Black"; World of Hammer Episode: "Hammer Stars: Christopher Lee"; and Printed Memorabilia perfect for every classic Hammer fan out there.
