Detective Inspector Quennell is brought in to investigate the deaths of mutilated bodies found in the English countryside. He consults entomology professor Mallinger (ROBERT FLEMYNG), but the doctor seems to be hiding a dark secret about his fetching young daughter, Clare (WANDA VENTHAM). The deeper Quennell digs into their story, the bloodier the violence, until he discovers a terrifying truth about Mallinger’s experiments.



This release comes with a matted slip cover. Features include an Audio Commentary by Novelist/Critic Kim Newman and Writer/Editor Stephen Jones in addition to the Theatrical Trailer (3:12).


VIDEO – 4½/5, AUDIO – 4/5

Kino Lorber releases The Bloody Beast Terror onto Blu-ray for the second time after previously being released in 2012 and as such, this is the same transfer, which had received a 2K restoration. The 1080p high-definition presentation, shown in the original 1.66 widescreen aspect ratio, looks fairly good overall. Detail is sharp particularly on the close-ups and colors appear to be nicely balanced with skin tones having a natural appearance and the blood red coming across with some modest vibrancy.

The movie comes with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track which provides strong dialogue levels with no apparent signs of pops, hisses or any other flaws that sometimes can permeate these older films. In any case, it’s a solid lossless track.
