Hello Everyone,

Can anyone tell me which Hammer films have been released on Super 8? I've seen a few here and there but wasn't sure of the color/black & white and sound/silent options. I've seen-

The Gorgon (400 ft color/sound)
Taste the Blood of Dracula (200 ft color/silent)
Scars of Dracula (400 ft color/sound)
Revenge of Frankenstein (200 ft b&W/silent)
Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (200 ft b&w/silent)

What else is out there and are any of the ones listed above as silent available with sound?

Was there a release of VAMPIRE CIRCUS, or am I confusing it with TWINS OF EVIL?

Thank you! I was actually just about to try to delete my question because I finally noticed VAMPIRE CIRCUS hiding in plain sight on the list above, but that info is quite helpful.

It was Curse of the Crimson Altar not Alter, though Derann second hand lists did often spell it Alter [Big Grin]

It was a Tigon film. The trailer was also released by Walton.
