Samurais ‘n Sexy Vamps Coming in Blood


The Japanese import arriving this March

Well Go USA announced today that it has acquired North American DVD and Blu-ray rights to the new horror flick Blood, starring Aya Sugimoto (Flower & Snake, Flower & Snake II) and Guts Ishimatsu (Black Rain, Empire of the Sun) and directed by Ten Shimoyama, director of the international hit Shinobi.

Not to be confused with this Blood, the film mixes “erotic” vampires with ancient Samurai warriors and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on March 15, 2011.

Synopsis: Police Detective Hoshino (Kanji Tsuda) investigates the murder of a maid at a mansion belonging to Miyako Rozmberk (Aya Sugimoto), a seductive vampire mistress and “cougar” all in one. Ukyo Kuronuma (Jun Kaname), an Edo-era swordsman who was turned into a vampire by Miyako, is blamed for the crime, but before anything can be done about it Hoshino ends up under Miyako’s spell as well. This leads Hoshino and Ukyo to battle one another for the privilege of staying with Miyako for eternity.
