In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory will release 'Dead Cert' on Blu-ray on September 27.
Jam-packed with all the ingredients of both a vampire flick and a gangster film -- creepy monsters, scantily-clad women, tough-talking wise guys, gratuitous bloodshed and a seemingly crazy vampire hunter, 'Dead Cert' features a star-studded cast of familiar British acting talent including Craig Fairbrass ('The Bank Job'), Dexter Fletcher ('Kick-Ass'), Billy Murray ('Rise Of The Footsoldier'), Lisa McAllister ('Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes'), Steven Berkoff ('The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'), Dave Legeno ('Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince'), Jason Flemying ('X-Men: First Class') and Danny Dyer ('Dead Man Running').
Produced by horror specialists Black and Blue Films and directed by Steve Lawson, 'Dead Cert' marks a welcome return to the fun, almost-traditional British horror filmmaking style that affectionately evokes the spirit of the contemporary-set movies of Amicus and Hammer -- particularly the latter’s 'Dracula A.D. 1972' and The Satanic Rites of Dracula.'
'Dead Cert' is a bloodsucking feast with more bite than most and one that horror fans will definitely enjoy sinking their teeth into.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, an English 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include an audio commentary, making of featurette, and the theatrical trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
