Blue Underground is on a roll this year, churning out fan favorites like Fulci's City of the Living Dead, Django and the upcoming Maniac all in glorious high definition on Blu-ray disc. According to High-Def Digest, they've recently announced yet another addition to their slate, Harry Kümel's Daughters of Darkness. The 1971 film stars Delphine Seyrig who eagle-eyed fans may recognize from Alain Resnais' 1961 classic and current Criterion Collection title, Last Year at Marienbad. I haven't seen this particular film, but it looks to feature the famed Countess Bathory as the main character, played by Seyrig. Hopefully horror fans can count on the tagline to deliver "an erotic nightmare of vampire lust." Sounds good to me!
Blue Underground has announced the expected 1080p video transfer as well as a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio track for the original mono sound. Special features are slated to include:
Audio Commentary with Co-writer/Director Harry Kümel
