Blood of the Vampire Blu-ray Out June 2022 – British Horror

Nucleus Films are bringing the British horror film Blood of the Vampire (1958) to blu-ray this June 2022 in the UK.

I’ve been waiting for the Blood of the Vampire blu-ray for quite some time as this release date has been put back several times.

The film is written by Hammer legend Jimmy Sangster and stars Donald Wolfit, Barbara Shelley, Vincent Ball and Victor Maddern.

I’m hopeful that this is going to be an excellent release with it being a newly restored 1.66:1 transfer of the original uncensored version from original vault materials.
