In 1981 I discovered a little horror anthology called The Monster Club and have been in love with it ever since. Vincent Price, John Carradine, and a boatload of monsters? What’s not to like? Thankfully the flick is on its way to Blu-ray for the very first time. Read on for details.
Look for it in stores on October 1st.
From the Press Release
In the tradition of The House that Dripped Blood and Tales from the Crypt comes The Monster Club, starring master of horror Vincent Price (Witchfinder General, The Fly, Masque of the Red Death).
When elder vampire Erasmus (Price) literally gets a midnight snack from horror writer R. Chetwynd-Hayes (John Carradine, The Howling), he invites him back to a local hot spot where all the guys are ghastly and the girls are ghoulish! There, three spine-tingling tales unwind to the beat of rockin’ tunes from an array of pop performers.
The star-studded cast also includes Donald Pleasence (Halloween), Britt Ekland (The Wicker Man), Stuart Whitman, Richard Johnson (Beyond yhe Door), Simon Ward (Holocaust 2000), Barbara Kellerman (Satan’s Slave), Anthony Steele, and Patrick Magee, and the film features music by UB40 and The Pretty Things. Directed by Roy Ward Baker (The Vampire Lovers, Scars of Dracula) and based on stories by author R. Chetwynd-Hayes (From Beyond the Grave), now see The Monster Club from a brand new HD master!
