Scream Factory upgrades The Vampire Lovers to Collector’s Edition

When Scream Factory released The Vampire Lovers in 2013, there were some bonus features on the Blu-ray. Now that the label has put out numerous Hammer horror titles over the last few years, they’re re-issuing the Blu-ray with plenty of new bonus features to create The Vampire Lovers: Collector’s Edition. The film features Ingrid Pitt as vampire who works both sides of a neck. The film was from the time when Hammer needed to bring a little erotic action to their frights. The Blu-ray upgrade arrives right before Christmas on December 21. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
