Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing Classic ‘Horror Express’ Getting Arrow Video Blu-ray in February

There’s a good chance you probably already own a copy of 1972’s Horror Express (I’ve long only had an awful dollar store release in my collection), but you’ll probably want to upgrade when Arrow Video releases their brand new Blu-ray in the US & Canada next February.

Announced and detailed today, Arrow’s Blu-ray of the Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing-starring film will include a brand new 2K restoration from original film elements!

“Horror royalty and Hammer alumni Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee reunite for this tale of mad monks, primitive humanoids and bloodthirsty zombies set aboard a train bound for Moscow – all aboard the Horror Express!

Renowned anthropologist Saxton (Lee) boards the Trans-Siberian Express with a crate containing the frozen remains of a primitive humanoid which, he believes, may prove to be the missing link in human evolution. But all hell breaks loose when the creature thaws out, turning out to be not quite as dead as once thought!

Directed by Spanish filmmaker Eugenio Martin, Horror Express remains one for the most thrilling (and, quite literally!) chilling horror efforts of the early 1970s.”
