Freddie Francis' thriller will dig up Blu-ray in November. You can pre-order it here.
In an early announcement to retailers, Scream Factory says 'The Doctor and the Devils' on Blu-ray on November 4.
Based on Dylan Thomas' original screen play, this shocking horror-thriller stars Timothy Dalton as Thomas Rock, a brilliant young anatomy professor in 1820s Edinburgh. At first accepting only the cadavers provided him for study - those of a few hanged criminals a year - Rock eventually recruits two grave robbers (Jonathan Pryce and Stephen Rea) to secure a better supply of corpses. Coming to the gory conclusion that they will earn more the "fresher" the corpses, the two begin committing murder and delivering warm bodies to the doctor's lecture chambers. Also starring Julian Sands and Twiggy, The Doctor And The Devils brings classic chills from start to finish.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Audio Commentary With Author and Film Historian Steve Haberman; New Interviews With Executive Producer Mel Brooks, Producer Jonathan Sanger And Former Brooksfilms Development Executive Randy Auerbach; and Theatrical Trailers.
