The Devil Rides Out - UK Blu-ray Has New Effects
Hammer Films continues its cooperation with several other studios and brings classic movies from its film stock onto the British market. Unfortunately, they don't always deliver what fans want.

The British blog SFX shows some of the alterations and helps fans to decide for themselves:
