SCREAM FACTORY DEBUTS THIS CLASSIC HORROR TALE ON BLU-RAY WITH THREE NEW AUDIO COMMENTARIES!
Intended to be a followup to DRACULA, this oft-forgotten Horror classic features Lugosi as a "different" vampire, who is accidentally freed during a Nazi bombing raid! I've been meaning to see this one for a while (mostly to see Lugosi's werewolf servant in action), and it looks like Scream Factory's new Blu is the way to go!
Synopsis: Bela Lugosi rises from the crypt in this blood-curdling horror classic! In 1918, Armand Tesla (Bela Lugosi), a 200-year-old Hungarian Vampire, prowls the English countryside, feeding from the jugulars of the villagers. But Tesla's reign of terror is interrupted when a pair of scientists, Lady Jane (Frieda Inescort) and Sir John Ainsley (Roland Varno), drive a railroad spike through his heart.
The "un-dead" Tesla remains safely entombed for two decades until the impact from a stray Nazi bomb accidentally releases him. Along with his werewolf servant Andreas Obry (Matt Willis), the resurrected vampire now plots vengeance on the family that put a halt to his nocturnal feasting!
