Synapse to unleash 'Chiller' in the US

Get ready to be scared! On December 11th Synapse Films will be releasing the 2 disc DVD set of the complete TV series of Chiller. The show originally aired in the UK, and this is the first time it will be available in the US. The set will run to 265 mins. On a completely irrelevant note, one of the stars of Chiller, Nigel Havers, was at the same school as my dad!

The television series Chiller was a five-episode horror anthology that aired in the UK in 1995. Presented here for the first time in the U.S., these supernatural shockers feature malevolent spirits, a brutal serial killer and a haunted house set in contemporary England. Starring many of Britain’s leading actors like Nigel Havers (Chariots of Fire, TV’s Coronation Street), Martin Clunes (UK’s Men Behaving Badly), Sophie Ward (Young Sherlock Holmes) and Kevin McNally (Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean series), this compelling collection will leave you chilled to the bone! Episodes include PROPHECY, TOBY, HERE COMES THE MIRROR MAN, THE MAN WHO DIDN'T BELIEVE IN GHOSTS and NUMBER SIX.

Directors: Lawrence Gordon Clark, Bob Mahoney, Rob Walker
Stars: Nigel Havers, Martin Clunes, Sophie Ward, Kevin McNally
