Lionsgate launch Vestron Collectors Series in UK

by Phil Wheat

If you’ve been keeping any eye on the BBFC website this news won’t come as that much of a surprise… However, Lionsgate UK have officially announced today the launch of the Vestron Collectors Series line of Blu-rays here in the UK! Yes, no longer will you have to fork over £30-40 to import the well-received Vestron Blus, instead you can get them right here in Blighty. The catch? It looks, at least from this announcement, that we won’t be getting ALL the Vestron titles – after all, there’s no Waxwork 2 included on the UK Blu.

From the press release:

BLOOD DINER
Restored and remastered, this UNRATED VERSION has never been on Blu-ray!
Grab a table at the BLOOD DINER—a cut above the rest! The Tutman Brothers run the most popular restaurant in town. Popular, that is, if you’re the county coroner! The “Head” chef has a real human touch with his special recipes – a killer line-up of delicacies made from human flesh! One of the most insane and over-the-top horror comedies ever made, BLOOD DINER is presented here fully uncut, restored from original vault materials, and features a buffet of tasty new supplemental features you’ll just die for!

C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD
Restored and remastered and for the first time on Blu-ray!
Kevin, Steve, and Katie are an inseparable trio of friends doing some extracurricular snooping in the school science lab when, among the test tubes and beakers, they discover a corpse! But before they can say “Abra Cadaver,” the body disappears, rolling down Route 51 strapped to a gurney. The kids need a spare stiff, and fast. What they find is “Bud the Chud,” a half-dead decomposing humanoid, the result of a military experiment gone haywire. When Bud sets out on a killing spree, the kids, the army, the police, and the FBI are hot on his trail, trying to save the entire town from becoming “Chudified!”

When a young man uses the chemical to bring his girlfriend back to life after a motorcycle accident, she is driven to eat the only thing that will nourish her… human brains!

WAXWORK
Restored and remastered!
Inside the wax museum a group of teenagers are aghast at the hauntingly life like wax displays of Dracula, the Wolfman, the Mummy, and other character members of the Horror Hall of Fame. Each display is perfectly grotesque, yet each is missing one thing . . . a victim! Admission to the WAXWORK was free but now they may pay with their lives! One by one, the students are drawn in as objects of the bloodthirsty creatures. They are now part of the permanent collection!
Special Features:
AUDIO COMMENTARY with Anthony Hickox & Zach Galligan
