Iván Noel's 'Children of the Night' Blu-ray Detailed

Posted Wed Sep 23, 2015 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The vampire flick will rise from Blu-ray's grave in September.

As previously reported, Artsploitation Films is set to release 'Children of the Night' on Blu-ray on September 29.

South America has been a hotbed of new indie horror films for several years and one cannot find a better example of this than in 'Children of the Night', an Argentinean vampire tale that is innovative, creepy, bloody and even funny. John W. Allman of The Tampa Tribune called the film "Haunting and wholly original...bites down with bloody glee!"

A secluded colony of child vampires come under attack from vengeful villagers in this darkly funny horror tale by Argentinean filmmaker Ivan Noel. A journalist visits a secluded orphanage where children suffer from an unknown skin disease. She soon learns that they are in fact not children, but vampires aging from 4 to 120 years old and who have been bitten at an early age and forever remain in that physical state. They are led and protected by a strange and deeply religious ex-nurse whose destiny in life is to find these 'lost souls' and raise them in her sanctuary. Through religious teachings, nocturnal rituals and the occasional visit to local towns for fresh human blood, she keeps them safe – that is until a cultish band of men from a nearby village plot to destroy the refuge. Now the children, headed by the 90-year-old grandson of Count Dracula, must defend their way of life.

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but supplements include an audio commentary, a featurette, and a trailer.
