Higanjima – Escape From Vampire Island (R2/UK BD) in October
Manga Entertainment have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Higanjima – Escape From Vampire Island on 4th October 2010. Based on the manga series by Koji Matsumoto, this live-action vampire movie is brought to the screen by the South Korean director of ‘Volcano High’, Kim Tae-gyun, and faithfully adapted by the Japanese screenwriter of the ‘Death Note’ movies, Oishi Tetsuya. Higanjima – Escape From Vampire Island takes the vampire genre and its myths to new extremes, adding samurai sword action, undead mad scientists, fearlessly devoted vampire slayers, winged harpies, a bunch of hapless teens and, yes, a whole island chock full of vampires to its crazy mix of unadulterated, blood-splattered horror madness.
Priced at £15.99 RRP on DVD and £19.99 RRP on Blu-ray Disc, features are TBC.
