Warner Archive just offered up a wonderful early Halloween treat having just released John Landis‘ vampire/gangster pic Innocent Blood on Blu-ray! Available for order here, the Blu-ray is an HD remaster in 1080p delivered in 16×9 Letterbox. The biggest surprise, however, is that it contains scenes not previously seen in North America!
“John Landis revisits vampire flicks with the same revisionist wit he brought to bear on werewolves in the classic An American Werewolf in London; this time bringing a French vampire to the wilds of the Steel City, Pittsburgh. Anne Parillaud plays Marie, la femme fangita with a penchant for desanguinating wise guys. Undercover goombah Joe Gennaro (Anthony LaPaglia) searches for answers while Marie continues her bloody takedown of Salvatore “Sal the Shark” Macelli (Robert Loggia) mob. Sal proves himself a shark as he’s the one snack Marie fails to finish, making it time for La Cosa Nosferatu. Gore, laughs and romance abound as cop, vampire and mob head on a collision course where more than one kind of sparks fly.”
Landis assembles a true cast of characters that includes Don Rickles, Angela Bassett, David Proval, Tony Sirico and Luis Guzman.
This ghoul just wants to have fun! She also wants an occasional bad guy to sink her fangs into – because she never, ever takes Innocent Blood.
