Also known as Andy Warhol’s Dracula, the 1974 horror movie Blood for Draculais headed to 4K Ultra HD, with Severin Films announcing the surprise title on social media this afternoon.
Directed by Paul Morrissey, the film stars Udo Kier in the title role.
“The film involves Count Dracula (Udo Kier) arriving in Italy to feast upon the blood of virgins, only to find difficulty with this due to the lack of virgins present in Italy.”
Severin teases, “Our edition features a UHD with a new master of the film, scanned uncut in 4K from the original negative for the first time ever.”
Blood for Dracula will debut during Severin’s Mid Year Sale later this month, along with eight other brand new titles. Severin notes that the 4K Ultra HD release “debuts Saturday, June 26 at 11:59:59 PM EST and will ONLY be available for the remainder of the sale.”
It's finally time to share the details on our big sale title! BLOOD FOR DRACULA will be a 3-disc set with slip case. The first disc is a UHD with the film in 4K HDR. The second disc is a blu-ray with a 1080P presentation of the film, along with bonus features. The third disc is a newly mastered, extended version of the CD soundtrack.
