Roy Ward Baker's THE VAMPIRE LOVERS (1970) from Shout Factory 4/30 -- More Hammer!
 
Hammer Films' Karnstein Trilogy kicks off in style with Roy Ward Baker's THE VAMPIRE LOVERS (1970), coming to Blu Ray from Scream Factory! An adaptation of J. Sheridan Le Fanu's lesbian gothic 'Carmilla,' the film follows the vengeance of Mircalla Karnstein (Ingrid Pitt), deceiving aristocratic households to seek retribution for the decimation of her bloodline. Soon, pretty young girls are showing up drained of fluids, and the townspeople begin to recognize a problem... Feeling pressure from increasingly explicit competition, the famed Hammer studios began to really trash up their output with this entry, adding more bloodshed and outright eroticism than previously found. We, the audience, win. Besides the hi-def rendering, Shout promises some additional supplements over the OOP MGM disc.

This will be a must own title unless it is a terrible transfer.

I love this movie! Can't wait to upgrade to BD!

While I'm glad to see Shout release this, I am sadden that MGM is not because that means the "Midnite Movie" line is definitely dead. At least other studios are releasing these films on BD.

sounds great! i'm looking forward to seeing this again! i hope the release date for the Countess Dracula BD from Synapse is announced soon. Hopefully it carries over all the existing extras as well, then i can safely ditch my midnight movies dvd.

Is it common for sites to be getting review copies this early?
