Dead Cert movie scene

A lap dancer moonlights as a vampire — or vice versa — in Dead Cert.

Shout! Factory will release the 2010 gangsters-strippers-and-vampires-filled horror movie Dead Cert on Blu-ray and DVD on Sept. 27, for the list prices of $24.99 and $19.97, respectively.

Craig Fairbrass (TV’s EastEnders) stars in the film as reformed London gangster Freddie Frankham, who tries to go legit with his newly opened lap dancing club while continuing to make illegal bets on his brawling brother-in-law’s (Danny Midwinter) bare-knuckle fighting competitions.

Everything changes when a group of Romanian bad guys attempt to take over the club, prompting the brothers-in-law to take some serious action. The problem is that the Romanian goon squad is actually a gaggle of vampires, who are determined to turn Freddie’s club into the city’s most decadent bloodsucking den.

The 2010 British film, directed by Steven Lawson (Just For the Record), also stars Jason Flemyng (Ironclad), Steven Berkoff (The Tourist) and Billy Murray (TV’s EastEnders). It rolled out to various horror film festivals in England and is premiering in the U.S. on DVD.

No special features have been announced for the Blu-ray and DVD.
