Get ready for high-definition haunts and ha-has coming from Scream Factory on February 10, 2015!  This double feature of Vampire’s Kiss and High Spirits presents a pair of paranormal favorites from the 1980s, available at last on Blu-ray. Vampire’s Kiss includes commentary with Nicolas Cage and director Robert Bierman.
VAMPIRE’S KISS - Teetering on the edge of sanity, volatile literary agent Peter Loew (Nicolas Cage) tries to find purpose in his life through a cutthroat work ethic and a hedonistic night life. But when an encounter with a mysterious beauty leaves Loew convinced that he is turning into a vampire, his behavior turns positively outrageous.
HIGH SPIRITS - Daryl Hannah, Peter O’Toole, Steve Guttenberg, Beverly D’Angelo, Jennifer Tilly, Peter Gallagher and Liam Neeson star in this hilariously haunting comedy!  When a castle-turned-hotel owned by Peter Plunkett (O’Toole) falls on hard financial times, he comes up with an idea to turn the place into a tourist attraction by billing it as Europe’s most haunted castle. But just when it seems he’ll have to give up the ghost, some real phantoms show up — and they’re none too thrilled about being exploited.
February 10, 2015                     Love At First Bite / Once Bitten                         SRP $24.97 BD
Sink your teeth into a pair of fangtastic vampire comedies, Love At First Bite and Once Bitten, on February 10, 2015 for the first time on Blu-ray! 
LOVE AT FIRST BITE - George Hamilton is possibly the tannest vampire in screen history in 1979’s Love at First Bite. When Count Dracula (Hamilton) is forced out of his castle to make room for an Olympic training facility, he relocates to New York City in search of discos, blood banks, and the fashion model who just might be the girl of his dreams. Will the Count take a bite out of the big apple — or will its mean streets take a bite out of him? Susan Saint James, Richard Benjamin, Arte Johnson, Dick Shawn and The Jeffersons’ Sherman Hemsley and Isabel Sanford also star in this outrageous romance about a guy who really loves the nightlife. 
ONCE BITTEN - Jim Carrey is necking with a vampire in Once Bitten, a 1985 teen comedy also starring Lauren Hutton, Karen Kopins, and Cleavon Little (Blazing Saddles). When a vampire Countess (Hutton) seeks virgin blood, she soon discovers that it’s not as easy to come by as it was in the good old days! When she crosses paths with the still-virginal Mark Kendall (Carrey in one of his earliest screen roles), it’s a race against time to get to him before he gets it on. Once Bitten is a totally 80s teen vampire flick where the bloodsuckers don’t sparkle, but the comedy most certainly does.
February 10, 2015                     Slugterra: Slug Fu Showdown                        
SRP $14.98 DVD

Junjie, the newest member of the Shane Gang, has the solution: Eli must learn Slug Fu, the ancient and mysterious form of slugslinging that Junjie mastered when he lived in the Eastern Caverns. The Slug Fu training won’t be easy, and it’s something Eli and Junjie must do alone. That means leaving Kord, Trixie and Pronto behind—and all of Eli’s slugs, too! Things get even tougher when Eli’s training is cut short by a mysterious new villain with a seriously insane plan to rock Slugterra to its core. The villain needs only one thing to unleash his evil plan: the Elemental Slugs! Luckily, Eli left them with the rest of the Shane Gang, so they are safe…or they would be, if Pronto hadn’t annoyed them so much that they hopped off and ran away. As Kord, Trixie and Pronto struggle to keep the wily Elementals out of the wrong hands, Eli and Junjie engage in a showdown with the madman before he can reduce the 99 caverns to rubble!
