The Plague Of Zombies Infects Blu-ray On January 15

While Hammer’s horror films were dominated by vampires, Frankenstein’s monster and mummies, they also venture into other creatures that went bump in the night. The Plague of Zombies has the undead populate an English town. This is not the usual creatures that rise from the grave and eat brains. The zombies of Hammer’s world are risen from the grave by a ritual and do their master’s bidding. Who is behind the empty caskets is at the heart of The Plague of Zombies. The bonus features for the Scream Factory edition will include new audio commentaries and the episode of World of Hammer that covered the film. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory with all the bonus feature details:
