Severin Films to release BLOOD ISLAND Blu-ray collection; also, an official Beast of Blood mask
Severin Films has been killing it lately – just take a look at our reviews for Anthropophagousand Absurd – and they’ve just announced another great release: The Blood Island Collection, a jam-packed releasing collecting Terror is a Man, Brides of Blood, Mad Doctor of Blood Island, and Beast of Blood in one giant package! These releases have all been restored from uncut film elements, and they’re getting a smorgasbord of special features including:

Note that Beast of Blood is only included in the box set, because Severin will also be releasing these separately. Also, they have two (well, now one) limited edition packages.
The first is called the Blood Oath Bundle and for $75 you get the collection, pins, coasters, swizzle stick, a treasure map, and a recipe card.
The second bundle, called Dr. Lorca’s Head, has already sold out, but for $105 you got all of the Blood Oath bundle plus a special Trick or Treat Studios Beast of Blood mask!
The reason we bring this up is not to make you jealous that you missed out on the seriously limited edition, but because the Beast of Blood mask is still available on its own both from Trick or Treat Studios and Spirit Halloween. The mask retails for $54.99 on its own so everyone who grabbed the bundle got a good deal.
Will you be picking up this overstuffed bloody collection?
