WELL GO USA ACQUIRES NORTH AMERICAN DVD/BLU-RAY RIGHTS TO BLOOD
The New Horror Hit from Japan Set for release on DVD and Blu-ray on March 15, 2011
PLANO, TX. (January 7, 2011) — 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”. BLOOD is one of the most highly anticipated horror movies to come out of Japan this year. Shimoyama mixes “erotic” vampires with ancient Samurai warriors making BLOOD the next evergreen horror classic from Japan. BLOOD will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on March 15, 2011.
“BLOOD” is a great addition to our growing DVD and Blu-ray library and an important release for us in early 2011,” said Tony Vandeveerdonk, Executive Vice President for Well Go USA. “Ten Shimoyama’s directing expertise including his unique vision is what makes “BLOOD” such a compelling film. We have a strong catalog of Japanese horror titles and “BLOOD” fits nicely into the mix.”
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.
