The old Planet Film Production mob eh?
A very short lived British company who distributed more films than they actually produced!

However small,they still attracted some of the finest actors and directors who worked in horror films back then.

Any fans of these cheapo sci-fi/horror hybrids?

What do you like about them?

Which versions/releases do you own?

Where did you first see them?

And,finally which one is you favourite?

I have the DD release of NIGHT OF THE BIG HEAT, the German release of ISLAND OF TERROR due to the DD version losing the blood spurt from Peter Cushing's hand-severing & three versions of DEVILS OF DARKNESS (For reasons shown below):
The E.M.S release
The Odeon release
The MGM release with the excellent WITCHCRAFT
All the releases are missing bits & pieces but the ODEON version has the longest snake dancing scene in the film itself (The original BBFC cut)

REWIND INFO ON ALL THREE VERSIONS:

Rewind @ www.dvdcompare.net - Devils Of Darkness (1965)
Dvd Compare says its on a set with The Premature Burial. Which it isn't. As you say Mark, its with Witchcraft, which incidentally is a far superior film.

Yes I noticed it was supposedly paired with Premature Burial but that's actually paired with Masque Of The Red Death on my Midnite Movies double bill.I will correct the error myself now I'm a moderator there.
EDIT: Sorted.
