The Lost Continent finds its way to DVD

Cover for Optimum's UK DVD release of &l

Dennis Wheatley's novel "Uncharted Seas" provided the source material for Hammer's gothic fantasy The Lost Continent, which is now available on DVD for the first time in the UK.   
Eric Porter stars as the melancholy captain of an old steamer on a perilous mission, joined with an unruly crew and a dubious passenger list. The film develops into a dark fantasy when the ship is dragged into the Sargasso Sea into a strange netherworld filled with giant crustaceans and Spanish conquistadors preying on anyone unfortunate enough to stumble upon their hidden island.

Michael Carreras wrote, produced and directed the film. Eric Porter stars along with Jimmy Hanley, Suzanna Leigh, Hildegard Knef, Nigel Stock, Dana Gillespie and Michael Ripper.

The Lost Continent is released on the Optimum Classic label priced £15.99.
