Warner Archive Has Restored the Boris Karloff-Starring ‘Isle of the Dead’ for New Blu-ray Release / Bloody Disgusting

"Another horror classic is on the way from Warner Archive, with 1945’s Isle of the Dead announced for upcoming Blu-ray release. The movie stars horror legend Boris Karloff.

Warner Archive’s brand new 1080p HD Master is sourced from a 4K scan of the Original Nitrate Camera Negative, and the Blu-ray will be released on March 30th, 2021.

In the Val Lewton-produced, Mark Robson-directed film, “Once you visit the Isle of the Dead, there’s no hope of returning to the land of the living. A small island off the coast of Greece holds a secret so dreadful that once you step onto its soil you must remain there forever. General Pherides (Karloff) is one such a visitor. Going to the island to honor the grave of his late wife, Pherides discovers that it’s held in the grip of a terrifying plague – a sickness that enters the victim’s mind and drives them insane!

“Pherides leads the fight against the plague, but then falls prey to it himself. In his delirium, he believes that a woman named Thea (Ellen Drew) is a vrykolaka – a vampire responsible for the deaths. Insanity runs rampant, and grave robbery, premature burial and ghastly vampires are the unspeakable horrors that await on the Isle of the Dead.”"
