Blood Bath Gets Blu-ray With 4 Versions

Arrow Video Release in the US and UK

Blood Bath (1966) was produced by Roger Corman and has an interesting production history. Planned as a crime thriller titled Operation Titian, Corman didn't like the end result. The film was then recut, got a new soundtrack and was released as Portrait of Terror (1965).

After that, scene reshoots followed that made the film into a vampire movie released as Blood Bath. On TV, it was aired as Track of the Vampire and features new scenes while missing others.

On May 30th 2016, Arrow Video will release a Blu-ray set in the US and the UK that contains all 4 versions, restored from the best possible sources. The specs:
