The Amicus Collection Blu-ray Box Set

From Severin Films on December 5th

Great news for Anglophile horror fans!  Severin Films announced today that they will release The Amicus Collection, a four-disc Blu-ray box set on December 5th.  The set will include three films from “The Studio That Dripped Blood” — Asylum (1972), And Now the Screaming Starts (1973), and The Beast Must Die (1974) — each on its own Blu-ray, plus a disc of extras, entitled “The Vault of Amicus.”

Two of the films will also be available for purchase individually, but you have to purchase the box set if you want the werewolf mystery The Beast Must Die (and you know you do).
