Win: The Witches Blu-ray

Screen Shot 2013 10 22 At 10 30 49

Following the releases of the fully restored Hammer classics, THE DEVIL RIDES OUT, THE MUMMY’S SHROUD and RASPUTIN THE MAD MONK last year, STUDIOCANAL are delighted to announce the release of THE WITCHES fully restored just in time for Halloween! This new restoration will have 2 screenings at the 57th BFI London Film Festival on October 11th and 16th, and will be out on DVD/Blu-ray Double play on October 21st.

We have three copies of the Blu-ray to give away to our readers.

Originally released in 1966, THE WITCHES is an unforgettably chilling pastoral horror from legendary British production company HAMMER. Adapted for the screen by Nigel Kneale (The Quatermass Experiment) it also stars Joan Fontaine (Rebecca, Suspicion) in her last major film role.

Gwen Mayfield, an English schoolteacher working as a missionary in Africa, suddenly finds herself being victimised by a tribe of local witch doctors. Exposed to the deadly powers of the occult she is left deeply traumatised. In an effort to recover Gwen takes up a position in a rural school within the British countryside. But the idyllic village surroundings become increasingly sinister as Gwen begins to uncover a nightmarish web of dark and satanic secrets.
