Christopher Lee (THE WICKER MAN) gives one of his most unforgettable performances as Judge Jeffreys, the infamous 17th Century witchfinder whose unholy obsession with a luscious wench (Maria Rohm of EUGENIE) fuels a jaw-dropping spree of torture, brutality and flesh-ripping perversion. Howard Vernon (SUCCUBUS), Margaret Lee (FIVE GOLDEN DRAGONS), Maria Schell (99 WOMEN) and Oscar® nominee Leo Genn (QUO VADIS) co-star in this landmark epic of sexual violence and sadism, complete with a superb score by Bruno Nicolai (COUNT DRACULA) and directed with spectacularly deviant glee by the one and only Jess Franco (VENUS IN FURS).

Blue Underground is proud to present the most complete and uncensored version of NIGHT OF THE BLOOD MONSTER (also known as THE BLOODY JUDGE) from a brand-new 2023 master, painstakingly restored from various European vault elements featuring additional nudity, bloodshed and what Christopher Lee himself calls "scenes of extraordinary depravity!"

Press Quotes

An Abundance Of Naked Flesh And Brutal Moments Of Torture... THE BLOODY JUDGE Is A Satisfying Mix Of Sadism And Historical Melodrama!

     —10K Bullets

One Of Jess Franco's Most Underrated Films... Blue Underground Has Assembled The Longest Version Possible With All The Sensational Gore And Nudity Intact!

     —DVD Drive-In

I have nothing but praise for the work that was done in the lab because the film looked stunning on my system, and I am not exaggerating at all… the end product is an outstanding restoration and reconstruction. Needless to say, the entire film looks gorgeous and boasts a terrific organic color palette in native 4K and 1080p. All in all, the 4K restoration is one of the very best 4K makeovers that I have seen prepared to date, not just a terrific 4K makeover of a Jess Franco film!


Night of the Blood Monster is one of (Jess) Franco’s best collaborations with Christopher Lee… Not only is Blue Underground issuing the classic on Blu-ray, but they’ve also done a 4K release that is bound to be considered one of the finest examples of the format to be released this year… the picture is stunning and near flawless!

     —Horror Geek Life

This is an exceptional transfer by Blue Underground; the source looks excellent. Flesh tones look healthy, colors look vibrant, image clarity, contrast, black levels, and compression are solid, and the image always looks organic… Night of the Blood Monster (The Bloody Judge) gets a definitive release from Blue Underground, highly recommended!

     —10K Bullets

The 4K UHD restoration enhances the experience of watching the definitive edition of Night of the Blood Monster. This is much better than what ran in theaters across America over a half century ago. This is Jess Franco getting to work with top notch talent and beautiful locations!
