Piers Haggard's 'Venom' Planned for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Dec 16, 2015 at 06:00 AM PST by

The 1981 film starring Klaus Kinski, Oliver Reed, and Susan George will sink its fangs into Blu-ray in the new year.

In an early announcement to retailers, Blue Underground will be releasing 'Venom' on Blu-ray in the new year.

It was supposed to be the perfect crime: the sexy maid (Susan George of Straw Dogs), a psychotic chauffer (Oliver Reed of Revolver) and an international terrorist (the legendary Klaus Kinski) kidnap a wealthy ten-year-old boy from his elegant London townhouse. but they didn't count on a murdered cop, a desperate hostage siege and one very unexpected houseguest: a furious Black Mamba, the most lethal and aggressive snake known to nature. It can attack from ten feet away. It's bite brings excruciating death, and it is on the loose. Now, terror knows no antidote... and the ultimate in slithering mayhem is Venom.

No other details have been revealed at this time.
