Familiarize Yourself with Bloodsucking Cinema


New DVD from Anchor Bay

The Starz Originals documentary Bloodsucking Cinema, which aired last year, is coming to DVD September 23rd via Anchor Bay Entertainment.

The doc dips into the bloody archives to examine the breadth of vampire cinema classics, from the early Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee classic portrayals to contemporary visions including Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Van Helsing, Underworld: Evolution, Interview with the Vampire, The Lost Boys, Queen of the Damned, BloodRayne and John Carpenter’s Vampires.

Bloodsucking Cinema features interviews with such vampire “experts” as directors John Carpenter (Vampires), Len Wiseman (Underworld), John Landis (Innocent Blood) and Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys), actors Kristanna Loken (BloodRayne) and Stuart Townsend (Queen of the Damned), writers Marv Wolfman and David Goyer (Blade), as well as one of the last interviews with Oscar-winning special effects wizard Stan Winston (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Interview With The Vampire). Critics Leonard Maltin and Harry Knowles also provide insights into the movies’ eternal love affair with the vampire.

The documentary is hosted by renowned film critic Richard Roeper.
