Blood of the Vampire to get UK Bluray premiere from Nucleus Films

Blood of the Vampire is to get a UK Bluray premiere from Nucleus Films; it stars legendary actor Sir Donald Wolfit (Svengali, Room at the Top, Becket) who is joined by British horror queen Barbara Shelley (Village of the Damned, Dracula Prince of Darkness, Quatermass and the Pit) in Blood of the Vampire, a lurid tale of ghastly experiments in a Transylvanian prisonis. Despite being staked as a vampire, the sadistic Dr Callistratus has become governor and is now using prisoners for the blood transfusions that keep him alive…
Produced by Robert S Baker & Monty Berman (Jack the Ripper, The Hellfire Club, The Saint), directed by Henry Cass (No Place for Jennifer, Castle in the Air, Happy Deathday) and written by notorious Hammer scribe Jimmy Sangster (The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy), this long-awaited UK Blu-ray premiere has been remastered from original vault elements and is packed with bonus features.

Dare you step inside the terrible place Callistratus calls “my other laboratory”?
