Our brand-new, uncut transfer of Crucible Of Terror – the first of two ’70s Britsh horror releases this month – hits stores and e-tailers tomorrow. This “Brit equivalent of a giallo,” as described in DVD Drive-In’s review, stars the enigmatic Mike Raven as a sculptor in Cornwall with a penchant for using real women in his grisly works of art. The clip below from Crucible is of Raven hard at work as seen in the film’s chilling opening.
Legend has it that Raven, a former pirate radio DJ, once had a brief go at becoming the next British horror icon (Lust For A Vampire, I, Monster), had a real-life interest in the occult. His wife and six children always dressed in black and their house was completely decorated black. Soon after making the film he quit the spotlight to become a sculptor in Cornwall!
DVD Drive-In praises our release by giving the film “a much needed facelift with a new anamorphic widescreen transfer, with bold colors…and a clean, well-detailed image.” “Finally uncut and in its original aspect ratio,” exclaims AV Maniacs, “Crucible Of Terror looks the best it ever has on this DVD from Severin,” and for DVD Talk’s DVD Savant column the film contains “a couple of solid shocks!”
