Mansion of the Doomed Unboxing

101 Films’s celebrated Black Label series has given lavish Limited Edition treatment to countless cult classics, with everything from Screamers and Spookies to Howard the Duck and Silent Night Deadly Night earning their place in the continuing collection. May sees #035 released in the form of grisly gorefest Mansion of the Doomed (1976), one of many long-forgotten films seized and confiscated in the UK under Section 3 of the Obscene Publications Act 1959 during the video nasty panic. This twisted and violent shocker is ripe for rediscovery and 101 Films’ UK Blu-ray debut means fans can enjoy the depravity in dirty high def. Fascinating extras and an insightful booklet finish off this must-own release for horror junkies.

Synopsis

101 Films presents gruesome exploitation shocker Mansion of the Doomed (1976), available in the UK for the very first time. This limited-edition release includes a brand-new documentary on producer Charles Band’s Full Moon Features, an Interview with editor Harry Keramidas, artwork from the VHS release, and a booklet featuring brand new essays on the film by Chris Alexander and Andy Marshall-Roberts.

Richard Basehart stars as the maniacal Dr. Leonard Chaney, a brilliant surgeon who compulsively kidnaps people and rips out their eyeballs, dumping their bleeding bodies into a filthy basement cage. His masterplan? To transplant these ill-gotten orbs into the skull of his daughter, who herself was blinded in a tragic accident years before.
