Lionsgate Home Entertainment will release writer/director Ron Carlson’s LIFE BLOOD to DVD April 27, and we have the disc details after the jump. The movie was originally filmed as PEARBLOSSOM, and is also known as MURDER WORLD.
Sophie Monk from THE HILLS RUN RED and Anya Lahiri star in the film as Brooke and Rhea, a lesbian couple who encounter a supernatural being while driving down the Pearblossom Highway on New Year’s Eve 1968. The pair are sent to sleep for 40 years, after which they awaken as vampiric creatures—and soon are at odds with each other. The cast also includes the HALLOWEEN films’ Scout Taylor-Compton, Justin Shilton, Patrick Renna, Danny Woodburn, Angela Lindvall, Electra Avellan and genre veteran Charles Napier. The movie will be presented in anamorphic widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, accompanied by audio commentary by Carlson and Monk and deleted/extended scenes.
