Though best known for their legendary BLOOD ISLAND Trilogy, the Philippine/U.S. production/distribution company Hemisphere Pictures was also responsible for some of the most provocative and insane films of the ‘60s and ‘70s drive-in/grindhouse era. THE BLOOD DRINKERS and CURSE OF THE VAMPIRES are the still-potent masterpieces from The Father of Philippine Horror Gerry de Leon. BRAIN OF BLOOD is the all-star Grade Z classic from infamous exploitation auteur Al Adamson. THE BLACK CAT and TORTURE CHAMBER OF DR. SADISM – starring Christopher Lee and Tarzan – are Hemisphere’s two most extreme acquisitions for the company’s notorious double-feature packages. The films in this collection have all been newly scanned in 2K/4K from the best – and often only – complete elements available.
HEMISHPERE BOX OF HORRORS is a limited, numbered edition release of only 3500 units.
