What are the chances, then, of the first two Quatermass films,

And also The Flesh and the Fiends?

As I’m curious, and not certain of their rights holders.

The Flesh and the Fiends isn’t Hammer.

Ha, I had assumed, due to Cushing and Gilling.

The rights to those are apparently with Hammer Studios themselves but I think someone pointed out that StudioCanal set up a distribution deal with them last year so there's a chance Indicator could license them through SC. We'll have to wait and see though...they're my most wanted Hammer titles to be honest. Consensus is they'd probably pair them with X the Unknown and The Abominable Snowman to make it a similarly themed sci-fi Hammer set.

Worth noting that this is definitely the uncut version, which I gather isn’t true of every video release.

(Sixty years ago, the BBFC made a small cut to the murder at the start, but that footage has been reinstated - although at least one Universal master is of the cut version.)

Captain Clegg (aka Night Beavers).

In the fourth group of screencaps, the Indicator image is significantly darker, as a result of the new version addressing the day-for-night errors visible in previous releases.

I'm always disapointed when it's not Glenn Erickson doing the review.

Has anyone heard anything about the four films in Imprint’s forthcoming boxset having a chance of receiving an Indicator edition? (Vampire Circus, Hands of the Ripper, Twins of Evil & Countess Dracula.)

I think Network has rights for all of these in UK, I own their blu-ray release of Hands of the Ripper.

For some reason, Vampire Circus hasn't had a UK BD yet.

Oh, right, I completely forgot about those Network releases. Thankyou both.

Mine arrived yesterday too. Canada Post and Royal Mail were both very efficient on that one (which was shipped June 18). Thanks to them and to Indicator's practice of sending per-orders as the stock comes in, we now have them just under a week before the official release date.

CineOutsider on Hammer Volume 6:
I’ll freely admit that when Indicator released its first box set of lesser-seen films made by Britain’s Hammer Studios back in 2017, I genuinely could not have foreseen that four years later we would see a sixth instalment. Frankly, had you told me that this would be the case, then there’s a good chance I would have predicted that the quality of the content would have dropped by this point. Not so. To my surprise and considerable delight, one of the most remarkable things about the films in Hammer Volume Six: Night Shadows is that they are all – to my taste, at least – of a similarly high quality. For my money this is one of Indicator’s best Hammer collections yet.
