Dark Places Blu-Ray Release

On 27th February 2023, Nucleus Films releases the shocking 1970s horror film Dark Places on Blu-ray.


Legendary British stars Christopher Lee (Dracula Prince of Darkness, The Wicker Man, The Man with the Golden Gun), Joan Collins (Tales from the Crypt, The Stud, Dynasty) and Herbert Lom (The Phantom of the Opera, Mark of the Devil, Revenge of the Pink Panther) get together in a grisly tale of hidden loot in a haunted house.

Dr Ian Mandeville and his sister Sarah mean to get their hands on the £200,000 stashed in the derelict Marr’s Grove – only to find that Edward Foster, a stranger to the district, has recently inherited the place. As Edward rapidly succumbs to the influence of the mansion’s long-dead owners, madness and bloody murder ensue…

Directed by Don Sharp (The Kiss of the Vampire, The Face of Fu Manchu, The Thirty Nine Steps), this long-awaited UK Blu-ray premiere has been remastered from original vault elements and is packed with bonus features.
Also starring Jane Birkin (Wonderwall, Seven Deaths in the Cats Eyes, Death On the Nile), Robert Hardy (Berserk, Demons of the Mind, Psychomania) and Jean Marsh (The Twilight Zone, Frenzy, Upstairs Downstairs)…
Dare you enter Marr’s Grove and encounter the evil lurking within?
