An action-packed adventure drama set in the summer of 1588, The Devil-Ship Pirates stars Christopher Lee in a memorable turn as the evil captain of a Spanish privateer. Stylishly directed by Don Sharp – and one of several swashbucklers made by Hammer in the 1960s – it is featured here as a brand-new High Definition transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
While the British fleet is engaged in a desperate battle with the Armada, a Spanish vessel, the Diablo, puts in at a lonely inlet on the Cornish coast for emergency repairs. Finding a nearby village, the Spaniards terrorise the local population and take village girls as hostages.
Made by Hammer Films this is one of their lesser known non horror titles and is getting its debut on Blu ray. Special features on the disc will be Trailers and Image gallary.
