    Release date: 22 July 2019
    Limited Blu-ray Edition Box Set (World and UK Blu-ray premieres)

    One of British genre cinema's most important and distinctive independent filmmakers, Norman J Warren made a series of horror films which were at the forefront of a new wave in British horror during the 1970s. Reflecting a period of permissiveness and fearlessness, Warren's distinctive stylings are far removed from the Gothic conventions of Hammer Films, deliberately upped the ante in terms of sex, violence and gore to create a new breed of horror that was designed to shock for shock's sake.

    Five of Norman J Warren's horrifying chillers are presented here in new restorations and on Blu-ray for the very first time in the UK. Containing a wealth of new and archival extras - including new appreciations by contemporary British filmmakers, new cast and crew interviews, audio commentaries on all five films, rare short films, outtakes and alternative scenes, and making-of documentaries - this stunning Limited Edition box set is strictly limited to 6,000 units.

          Excellent! Thanks, Michael! I thought Arrow's Jose Ramon Larraz set would be difficult to top but it looks like Indicator's Norman J Warren set may be equal with it for my favourite release of the year. I'm looking forward to getting my sticky mitts on this.

            I haven't picked up any of his films from VS so, I'm thinking, this box set would be a wise purchase if they're in stock at DiabolikDVD when I have extra dough...

            Terror is the only movie I've seen & I remember liking it and I've always wanted to see Inseminoid but I don't know why. I think it goes back to seeing something in Fangoria about it.

              Does anybody know if TERROR is completely uncut?
              I keep reading different answers
              Here in the UK the film was always cut because of a foot stabbing scene
              Is it intact? I have contacted Powerhouse/Indicator but no reply yet


              • #8
                Just received an email from a guy at Powerhouse/Indicator and he states all films are fully uncut
                Hope he's right! I wanna spend £50 on this collection:up:
