Scream Factory will be releasing director Roy Ward Baker’s 1970 horror ‘The Vampire Lovers’ on Blu-ray in the USA. Come on in for more info and the trailer.

A female vampire with lesbian tendencies ravages the young girls and townsfolk of a peaceful hamlet in eighteenth century Europe who, years earlier, killed off her fellow vampires. A rousing hunt for the vampiress ensues as a group of men follow her bloody trail of terror through the countryside. Adapted from J.
