Three more cult classics join the Vestron Collector’s Series

Lionsgate UK are pleased to announce three more cult classics joining their Vestron Collector’s Series. Originally released by Vestron Video, these classic cult horror titles are restored and remastered on Blu-ray™ and packed with hours of special features.

DEMENTIA 13: DIRECTOR’S CUT

Presented in a high-definition director’s cut, Francis Ford Coppola’s first ever film Dementia 13 is quintessential gothic horror, wrapped in the twisted mysteries of a family’s deepest, darkest secrets. A widow deceives her late husband’s mother and brothers into thinking he’s still alive when she attends the yearly memorial to his drowned sister, hoping to secure his inheritance. But her cunning is no match for the demented, axe-wielding thing roaming the grounds of the family’s Irish estate in this cult favourite featuring Patrick Magee (The Legend of Hell House, A Clockwork Orange) and Luana Anders (The Trip, Night Tide).

Special Features

– Introduction by Francis Ford Coppola

– Audio Commentary by director Francis Ford Coppola

– Prologue (Dementia 13 Test)

THE WRAITH

Charlie Sheen, Nick Cassavetes (Face/Off), Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks), and Randy Quaid (Independence Day) star in this turbocharged cult classic! When four glowing orbs crash into each other over the Arizona desert, they leave in their wake a badass Dodge Turbo Interceptor, and its enigmatic, helmeted driver. The next day, the mysterious Jake (Sheen) appears in the town of Brooks, catching the eye of Keri (Fenn) and the ire of Packard (Cassavetes), the ruthless leader of a gang of street racers. When gang members start losing races, and lives, to the Interceptor, the recent death of Keri’s boyfriend suddenly seems connected to the arrival of Jake, the unbeatable car…and an avenging entity called The Wraith.

SUNDOWN: THE VAMPIRE IN RETREAT

The road to Purgatory is paved with good intentions, and Count Mardulak (David Carradine) wouldn’t have it any other way. He’s seeking atonement for centuries of human carnage, which is why he’s instructed Purgatory’s vampire residents to slather on SPF 100 sunblock, pursue daytime activities… and drink only synthetic blood. But some vampires don’t agree with Mardulak — they want the real thing — and if that means wooden bullets flying in a vampire civil war, so be it! This wild horror-comedy also stars Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead franchise), M. Emmet Walsh (Blade Runner), and John Ireland (Spartacus).
