Under their Scream Factory label, Shout! Factory has added a cool Double-feature Blu-Ray release to its line-up, scheduling the vampire comedies Love at First Bite and Once Bitten for release in February.
In “Love at First Bite,” George Hamilton is possibly the tannest vampire in screen history in 1979’s Love at First Bite. When Count Dracula (George Hamilton) is forced out of his castle to make room for an Olympic training facility, he relocates to New York City in search of discos, blood banks, and the fashion model who just might be the girl of his dreams. Will the Count take a bite out of The Big Apple—or will its mean streets take a bite out of him?
In “Once Bitten,” Jim Carrey is necking with a vampire in Once Bitten, a 1985 teen comedy also starring Lauren Hutton, Karen Kopins, and Cleavon Little (Blazing Saddles). When a vampire Countess (Hutton) seeks virgin blood, she soon discovers that it’s not as easy to come by as it was in the good old days! When she crosses paths with the still-virginal Mark Kendall (Jim Carrey in one of his earliest screen roles), it’s a race against time to get to him before he gets it on. Once Bitten is a totally ’80s teen vampire flick where the bloodsuckers don’t sparkle, but the comedy most certainly does.
Since this is a double-feature release, no bonus materials will be included on the disc.
Get ready for some bloodsucking fun when this double-feature Blu-Ray will become available for $24.97.
