Michael Reeves Limited Edition Blu-ray Unboxing

The early death of director Michael Reeves at just 25 robbed the UK of a potential major movie-making talent. Screenbound Pictures’ new ultimate Blu-Ray collection includes both of his iconic works (Witchfinder General and The Sorcerers), along with the first-ever Blu-Ray release of The Castle of the Living Dead, where he was part of the scriptwriting team, networking and learning on-set skills. Completing this stunning collection is the brand new feature-length documentary The Young General, featuring Ian Ogilvy.

We took a look at the wonderful new boxset release form Screenbound Pictures, which acts as a tribute to the young filmmaker’s immortal talent. The incredible films housed within this set serve as a bittersweet reminder of Reeves’ vision for cinema, and leave us to only imagine what he could have gone on to achieve.
