5.0 out of 5 stars christopher lee and peter cushing fans rejoice June 7 2011
By Marcia TOP 100 REVIEWER

Man Who Could Cheat Death / The Skull [Blu-ray] Classic horror cinema. The Skull is the stronger story. Based on a story by Robert Bloch, the screenplay is spell-binding and the acting is first-rate. Dr. Chris Maitland (Cushing) purchases the infamous skull of the Marquis de Sade despite a warning from his friend who previously owned the skull, Mathew Phillips (Lee). Will Maitland live to regret this decision?

The director, Freddie Francis presents the skull as a character. The shots that appear to come from inside the skull give the viewer the impression the skull thinks and the resulting mayhem leads us to believe it is still alive and dangerous. Death follows the skull.

The Man who could Cheat Death (Hammer film) stars Anton Diffring as Dr. Georges Bonnet who wants to live forever no matter the cost. Christopher Lee co-stars as a surgeon recruited to operate on Bonnet. Hazel Court plays Bonnet's girlfriend. Will she disappear like many of Bonnet's female companions? Great acting creates a thrilling atmosphere.

The Skull (1965) colour. 83 mins. Man ... Death (1959) colour. 82. min. Both widescreen and digitally remastered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat better but not a classic Hammer film. June 21 2014
Verified Purchase
The best part of this disc is that it is a double offering a hammer film with a fair entry in the horror genre from Freddy Francis, The Skull. Again, being one of the few Blu Ray DVDs it is in my collection, but not much more than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice double feature from Hammer and Amicus April 17 2014
By Keith Little TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
This set would make a nice addition to any horror fan's library. The Man Who Could Cheat Death is from Hammer and The Skull is from Amicus. Each film is on a single disc with standard English Dolby Digital 2.0 audio and pretty good transfers are used for both films - I think The Skull looks somewhat better than the other. Neither film has any extras, subtitles or close captioning. Both films are in colour.

Disc 1 - The Man Who Could Cheat Death - 1959, widescreen 1.66:1, 82 mins. Stars: Anton Differing, Hazel Court, Christopher Lee. Screenplay: Jimmy Sangster. Director: Terence Fisher.

Disc 2 - The Skull - 1965, anamorphic widescreen 2.35:1, 83 mins. Stars: Peter Cushing, Patrick Wymark, Christopher Lee. Screenplay: Milton Subotsky. Director: Freddie Francis.
