"MERLIN AND THE BOOK OF BEASTS" Materializing on DVD August 25th from Anchor Bay Entertainment

James Callis and Laura Harris star in a new and exciting interpretation of a classic fantasy

The age of knights was one of chivalry and honor, of magic and mystery, of passion and betrayal. And now that age has passed -- perhaps forever. What remains is a shadowy world of fear and terror.

Anchor Bay Entertainment, the undisputed leader in cult and classic horror home entertainment, will release the much-anticipated SciFi Channel premiere Merlin and the Book of Beasts, starring James Callis and Laura Harris, on DVD on Aug. 25, 2009. Pre-book is July 23, 2009, with an SRP of $19.97.

Welcome to the dark side of Camelot. King Arthur is gone. The Round Table is in ruins, and a rogue sorcerer has unleashed a reign of monstrous terror upon the land. For the court’s last remaining knights, their only hope lay in the powers of the now-bitter and broken wizard Merlin (James Callis, “Battlestar Galactica,” Bridget Jones’ Diary). But can a once-great man of magic defeat a legion of creatures that includes Dragon Soldiers, Death Hawks and Gorgons, and reclaim the land? Merlin and the Book of Beasts is directed by Warren P. Sonoda (Sleeptalkers, 5ive Girls, Coopers’ Camera).

Laura Harris (“Dead Like Me,” “24”) co-stars in this head-spinning epic adventure that puts a savage new spin on the saga of Excalibur, Mordred, and the ultimate battle between Merlin and the Book of Beasts.
