'Thirst' Blu-ray Dated

Posted Mon Feb 10, 2014 at 10:00 AM PST by

Rod Hardy's 1979 vampire flick will sink its fangs into Blu-ray in March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Severin says 'Thirst' will have a Blu-ray release on March 11.

The Ozploitation classic and one of the most unique vampire movies of our time is back like you've never seen it before: David Hemmings (BLOW-UP, DEEP RED) and Henry Silva (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE) star as executives of an international blood-drinking cartel known as The Brotherhood. But when they abduct a descendant (Chantal Contouri of THE DAY AFTER HALLOWEEN ) of Elizabeth Bathory to reboot her depraved legacy, she must escape before the corporation can expand their human blood cow dairies and create a vampire master race. Max Phipps (THE ROAD WARRIOR) co-stars in this gripping shocker directed by Rod Hardy (Prisoner: Cell Block H), produced by Antony Ginnane (PATRICK, TURKEY SHOOT), and now transferred in HD from the original negative for the first time ever anywhere!

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Audio Commentary, Isolated Music Track, Trailer and TV Spots.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
