Get prepared for an animated assault this summer!

It is a decision that would test anyone's mettle. On June 12, Hellboy must choose between the destiny he accepted - the protection of mankind - and the destiny for which he was created - the destruction of mankind. Starz Home Entertainment brings back the graphic novel hero with its newest Hellboy animated feature, Hellboy: Blood and Iron. This newest feature from Mike Mignola and Oscar-nominated Guillermo del Toro reunites Hellboy's dramatic alumni: Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, John Hurt and Doug Jones. This DVD will be available at the SRP of $19.98 and pre-book is June 12.

With Hellboy: Blood and Iron, the combined talents of Tad Stones (Buzz Lightyear of Star Command), Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy) and Guillermo del Toro (writer/director, Hellboy, Oscar-nominated for Best Original Screenplay: Pan's Labyrinth) have created a bloody good adventure that both engages and excites.

Hellboy: Blood and Iron is reminiscent of the classic Hammer Horror films: an atmospheric tale of gothic thrills and chills - stunning to look at, terrifying in content. In 1939, the young Professor Broom destroyed the vampire Erzsebet Ondrusko. Now, decades later, it seems that someone is trying to bring her back and Professor Broom (John Hurt - V for Vendetta) wants to investigate this worrisome development himself.

The agents from the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense - Hellboy, Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien - go with him, far more worried about defending their top researcher than with anything paranormal! But their view is soon revised when they find themselves battling werewolves, ghosts, harpies...even Erzsebet herself.
