Label: Umbrella Entertainment
Audio/Video: Blood Vessel (2019) arrives on region-free Blu-ray from Umbrella Entertainment in 1080p HD framed in 2.35:1 widescreen. We get a solid looking image with strong black levels and shadow detail which is good because most this happens under the cover of darkness so I appreciated that. Colors a bit muted by design with the night scenes bathed in a blue/green hue that renders nearly everything monochromatic, though occasionally primaries like reds and yellows have some nice punchiness. Audio comes by way of a solid English DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround track with optional English subtitles.

Blood Vessel (2019) is a solid action-horror mash-up that delivers plenty of gory special effects, some fantastic looking practical bloodsuckers and high caliber production value that give it a great look. It might be a bit light on substance but for a bloodsucking action-romp I enjoyed it quite a bit more than 30 Days of Night or any of the underwhelming Underworld series.
