Standard Edition Blu-ray

Peter Cushing (The Gorgon, Corruption) and Oliver Reed (The Scarlet Blade) star in Peter Graham Scott’s Captain Clegg, which sees the legendary Hammer Films studio fuse horror and adventure in a film that was released in the US as Night Creatures.

When Captain Collier (Patrick Allen, Never Take Sweets from a Stranger) investigates reports of smuggling in the tiny coastal village of Dymchurch, the villagers, under the leadership of Parson Blyss (Cushing), refuse to co-operate. Collier’s men are plagued by apparitions of ‘marsh phantoms’ and tales of Captain Clegg, the fearsome pirate leader who was buried there... Or was he?
