Tigon British Film Productions

Tigon British Film Productions or Tigon was a film production and distribution company founded by Tony Tenser in 1966.

It is best remembered for its horror films, particularly Witchfinder General (directed by Michael Reeves, 1968) and The Blood on Satan's Claw (directed by Piers Haggard, 1971). Other Tigon films include The Creeping Flesh, The Sorcerers and Doomwatch (1972), based on the TV series of the same name.

Tigon was based in Wardour Street, London, and released a wide range of films from sexploitation (Zeta One, Au Pair Girls) to an acclaimed television film of August Strindberg's Miss Julie (1972) starring Helen Mirren. The largest part of their output, however, was made up by low-budget horror films in direct competition for audiences with Hammer Film Productions and Amicus Productions.

In February 2005, a DVD box set of Tigon films was released by Anchor BayUK. The box set contains only the following films: Witchfinder General / The Body Stealers / The Haunted House of Horror / The The Blood on Satan's Claw / The Beast in the Cellar / Virgin Witch) and consists of UK rather than US prints, in Region 2 - PAL format.
