2024 Also Begins With Exclusive Bundles & Disturbing Bedding
Now Presented in Standard Edition UHD and Blu-ray Releases

Severin Films kicks off the new year with three North American premieres that bring “one of the best labels in physical media” (Polygon) into 2024 replete with classic monsters, barbed-wire garrotes, ‘80s Italo-Sleaze in UHD and arguably the most depraved bedtime accessory ever created. For January, Severin presents the ultimate version of Jess Franco’s 1972 mash-up DRACULA, PRISONER OF FRANKENSTEIN; the rarely-seen Ozploitation slasher BLOODMOON, complete with infamous ‘Fright Break Challenge’; and Andrea Bianchi’s off-the-rails zombie carnage classic BURIAL GROUND, now in eye-popping, flesh-ripping 4K. To further celebrate everyone's favorite shambling Etruscans, an all-new BURIAL GROUND t-shirt and Michael Pillowcase will be available in two of this month's bundles. January also brings much-requested wide-release versions of previously limited-edition titles — Frank Henenlotter’s black comedy shocker BAD BIOLOGY, controversial ‘80s sleaze classic NIGHTMARE, and Lucio Fulci’s giallo masterpiece THE PSYCHICall fully restored in 4K UHD.

DRACULA, PRISONER OF FRANKENSTEIN: 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 Geneviève 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 to create the longest and most comprehensive version known to exist.

BLOODMOON: Though it arrived near the end of the cycle, it remains the most satisfyingly depraved – yet least-seen – old-school slasher in Ozploitation history: Someone is butchering students at St. Elizabeth’s Girls School, complete with gratuitous nudity, graphic gore, obnoxious teens, creepy cuckolds, barbed wire garroting, ‘80s Aussie glam-metal band Vice, an acid-flinging nun and heaps more. Leon Lissek (COUNTESS DRACULA), Christine Amor (SNAPSHOT) and Helen Thomson (ELVIS) star in the directorial debut of acclaimed UK cameraman/cinematographer Alec Mills (Polanski’s MACBETH, RETURN OF THE JEDI, THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS) with a standout score by Brian May (THE ROAD WARRIOR, PATRICK), now scanned uncut in 4K from the negative at The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia and complete with ‘The BLOODMOON Fright Break Challenge’ for the first time ever in America. 

BURIAL GROUND: For his only foray into the zombie genre, psychosexual sleaze maestro Andrea Bianchi (MALABIMBA: THE MALICIOUS WHORE, STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER) unleashed the barrage of flesh-ripping, gut-chomping and depraved oedipal mayhem that set insane new standards in Italian horror, now in UHD for the first time in North America: Mariangela Giordano (of SATAN’S BABY DOLL, THE SECT and PATRICK STILL LIVES fame) stars in the ‘80s splatter classic about a cursed country estate besieged by horny houseguests, undead Etruscans and the unusual relationship between a mother (Giordano) and her mega-creepy young son (disturbingly portrayed by adult actor Peter Bark) that will trigger some of the most jaw-dropping scenes in grindhouse history. Severin Films is improbably proud to present the definitive version of this gorehound/sex-fiend favorite, now featuring an all-new 4K scan and 4 hours of Special Features.
