Bloodthirsty is a 1970s Japanese vampire film trilogy produced by Toho Studio, consisting of The Vampire Doll, Lake of Dracula and Evil of Dracula. While there is no plot connection between the films, they share a vampire theme. The films were all directed by Michio Yamamoto and co-written by Ei Ogawa.
All three films have been released on Blu-Ray in a box set from Arrow Video. This release included uncompressed mono audio, Toho's export English dubs for Lake of Dracula and Evil of Dracula, a video appraisal by Kim Newman, original trailers, and a collector's booklet in the first pressing.
