Have you experienced audio problems with StudioCanal UK’s March 5th 2012 release of Hammer Films’ Dracula Prince of Darkness? If so, solution now available.
Hammer fans were left bitterly disappointed about the new blu-ray release of its classic vampire flick Dracula Prince of Darkness. The double play release starring the great Christopher Lee was met with disdain by fans after the audio appeared out of sync with the onscreen action. StudioCanal UK has quickly moved to resolve the issue which it admits is present on the discs released March 5th. If you have one of these faulty blu-ray’s StudioCanal UK is requesting you email your proof of purchase and mailing address to [email protected]. A working replacement will then be sent.
StudioCanal UK has said that the issue only affects “a couple of scenes” and that the issue is “small” in nature. The problem apparently occurred during the authoring stage, and although it was flagged, it was not rectified. There has been no mention of whether the current release has been recalled. So, evidently, those discs on shop shelves at the moment will have the audio fault.
Have you bought Dracula Prince of Darkness on blu-ray? Did you notice the audio problem? Have you sent off for a replacement and does the new version fix the audio issue?
