Hammer Films: Horror of Dracula - Coming Soon?

I see the cover art for Horror of Dracula listed under the coming soon section. This DVD has been out for quite some time. What is this new listing all about? Thanks!

Where exactly do you see this? Could you provide a link? I can't seem to find it.

Yeah, if you look around, June 1st is the re-release date for the WB Hammers... Not sure why the re-release, it's not a price drop, but that seems to be the case... And speaking of case... If you look over at Amazon > "Package Type: Keep Case" <

Exactly, Johnny . . . It begs the question. what (if any) other changes have been made? A different transfer? Extras? Anybody?

I just searched for "Curse of Frankenstein" at amazon and it too has a June 1 release. "Package Type: Keep Case" also. Hmmm

It is being released as part of the big 6-title Hammer box set, so probably each of the three original titles (with THE MUMMY and CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN) is being given a new promotion with lower pricing, thus the new order numbers.

Since amazon.com lists the packaging type for these as "Keep Case" does anyone know if they are in keep cases in the box set?

Saw a boxed set in Borders the other day, and it contains six snapper cases.

Also, each of the newer Hammer DVDs, "Taste," "Risen," and "Destroyed," were in snappers, too. (The DVDs for sale seperately.)

I suppose they could be re-issuing the older ones "Horror," "Curse," and "Mummy" in keepcases and getting rid of existing stock in the boxed sets, but since the newer films are also in snappers, it seems kind of doubtful. (But, considering Matrix was in a snapper while Reloaded and Revolutions, Warner doens't mind mixing and matching cases when it comes to series.)
