Inspired by Universal's 1940s monster mash-ups, writer/director Jess Franco instead delivered "a weird and wonderful masterpiece that transports you to a world like no other" (Scream Magazine): With minimal dialogue and maximum gothic atmosphere, Franco crafts a fever dream of erotic horror in which Count Dracula (Howard Vernon of DELICATESSEN), Dr. Frankenstein (Dennis Price of TWINS OF EVIL), his assistant Morpho and Frankenstein's monster battle gypsies, showgirls, Dr. Seward and a wolfman. Alberto Dalbés (THE EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN), Carmen Yazalde (A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD) and Genevičve Robert (star of Franco's DEVIL'S ISLAND LOVERS and the future Mrs. Ivan Reitman) co-star in "a fantastic experience for those who respect Franco's demented vision" (Mondo Exploito), now scanned in 4K from Spanish, French and German release prints and presented in 1080p HD on Blu-ray to create the longest and most comprehensive version known to exist.

Since business is not going well, Fuad also works the graveyard shift in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. During these long nights, he is repeatedly drawn to a statue representing the seductive goddess, Ishtar. As his fascination with Ishtar grows, she begins speaking to him in visions. One night, Fuad succumbs to her deadly charms and begins a new life of murder and cannibalism. He prepares a lavish feast for Ishtar dripping with the blood, organs and intestines of his victims. As the bodies pile up, Fuad slips further into madness until no one... not even his wife and daughter... is safe from the desires of the bloodthirsty goddess!

A fun and ultra-gory homage to H.G. Lewis' original 1963 BLOOD FEAST, this remake is presented uncut and in 4K Dolby Vision (HDR10 compatible) for the first time ever on home video! Stars genre favorites Robert Rusler (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY'S REVENGE), Caroline Williams (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE PART 2) and Sophie Monk (THE HILLS RUN RED).
