4K UHD version available for pre-order now
The Pseudo Vampire Movie Martin was George A. Romero’s personal favorite of all the films he had made – and now Second Sight Films has brought the film to 4K UHD! Copies can be pre-ordered directly from second look if you are in the UK but the company cannot ship outside of the UK and Ireland. In the US, you can pre-order the release Zavvi or diabolical. 4K UHD discs are region free, but the accompanying Blu-ray discs are region B bound.
Written and directed by Romero, Martin has the following summary:
Young Martin is firmly convinced that he is an 84-year-old blood-sucking vampire. Without fangs or mystical powers, Martin injects tranquilizers into women and drinks their blood through razor-bladed wounds. After moving to Braddock, Pennsylvania to live with his superstitious uncle, who also believes Martin is a vampire, Martin tries to exclusively hunt criminals and thugs, but stumbles when he falls in love with a housewife.
The film stars John Amplas, Lincoln Maazel, Christine Forrest, Elayne Nadeau and Tom Savini, with Romero himself as the priest.

Martin is one of my all-time favorite films, so I’m really excited that it’s getting this kind of release. I don’t have 4K UHD skills myself, but I’m hoping this will sell well with movie fans that do. Will you pick up a copy of Martin on 4K UHD? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
