Demons of the Mind

This late entry in the Hammer Films cannon gets a competent release by Anchor Bay Entertainment. The widescreen anamorphic print (aspect ratio of 1.85:1) has a perfect color balance and there is no noticeable wear and tear. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 (mono). The disc comes with a commentary track from director Peter Sykes, writer Christopher Wicking, and actress Virginia Wetherel, which is moderated by journalist Jonathan Sothcott. The entertaining topics covered include location and production stories and alternative casting choices. The moderator does keep the commentary flowing and is a welcome addition to the mix. All in all, a nice disc with no obvious setbacks.
