Wild Eye Releasing has announced its release of Kevin J. Lindenmuth’s VAMPIRES AND OTHER STEREOTYPES on Blu-ray as well as digital platforms October 24 as part of its Visual Vengeance line. The first of Lindenmuth’s series of New York City-based independent fright features, it stars Bill White, Wendy Bednarz, Ed Hubbard, Rick Poli, Anna Dipace, Suzanne Scott, Mick McCleery and Laura McLauchlin. The synopsis: “A pair of paranormal investigators are making their nightly rounds on the seedy streets of New York City when they encounter a group of party-hopping girls looking for a warehouse rave–who have also just accidentally opened a portal to hell. What follows is a night of practical effects monster mayhem as the group try to save themselves, and the entire planet, from a demonic invasion.”
