Disc 2: Special Edition Edit

The Curse of Fenric - Special Edition Edit

When The Curse of Fenric was first released by BBC Video in 1991, the story's director Nicholas Mallett, along with composer Mark Ayres, compiled some notes on how the story could be re-edited into a movie version with new material and extra scenes. Although the eventual video release contained some extra material, Mallett's plans were not fully implemented. Mallett sadly passed away in 1997, but Mark Ayres has worked to the original notes they compiled to oversee the editing of the story into a movie version at long last. Running to nearly 104 minutes, this digitally remastered Special Edition includes almost 12 minutes of extra material, new CGI special effects, and a remixed soundtrack in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.
