Halloween announcements!
Scream Factory
3 hrs ·
Okay by now you know we couldn’t let this day go by without some title announcements right? ;-) Here’s some treats to look forward to on Blu-ray in 2017:
- TALES FROM THE HOOD (1995) – The often-requested anthology film (Executive Producer by Spike Lee!) will finally make its Blu-ray format debut.
- DEADTIME STORIES (1986) – Another fun and highly-requested anthology movie that many remember from the 80s which features Scott Valentine, Melissa Leo and a title sequence song that you’ll never get out of your head!
- FIRESTARTER (1984) – Stephen King’s fiery psychic tale is planned for the Collector’s Edition treatment and will receive an all-new 2K film transfer!
- DEMENTED (1980) – Many remember this obscure exploitation revenge outing because it was originally on the early Home Media VHS label (once the home for Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street and other classics) and its cover art was in video stores everywhere. Stars Harry Reems (of Deep Throat fame)
- WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH HELEN? (1971) – Debbie Reynolds and Shelly Winters star in this offbeat and melodramatic thriller that has its fair share of fans. Also stars Dennis Weaver and Agnes Moorehead in supporting roles.
- THE SCREAMING SKULL (1958) – We head back into the 50s bring you this enjoyable spooky gem about newlyweds that scared plenty back in its day.
- PSYCHO (1998) – Gus Van Sant’s ambitious and highly-publicized (at the time) remake of Hitchcock’s classic makes its debut on the Blu-ray format.
- THE VAGRANT (1992) – Bill Paxton and Michael Ironside star in this interesting and unique comedic horror film executive-produced by Mel Brooks!
- THE ANGRY RED PLANET (1959) – A trip to mars turns into terror in this campy sci-fi thriller classic.
- VIRUS (1999) – Speaking of Sci-fi thrillers, we have another one to add…but this one stars legendary Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis! Also features William Baldwin and Donald Sutherland and has been long due for reevaluation.
There you have it! Please note that we have very little specific details about them at this time other than what we have provided above. As always, we’ll provide more information down the road when we can.
Again, Happy Halloween to everyone and enjoy the rest of the best holiday of the year!

Tales From The Hood! Finally...

That's the only must buy I'm seeing here. Psycho remake? Really?

Deadtime Stories has my interest. Another anthology film I've yet to see.

DISC 1:
• NEW 2016 2K scan of the negative (1.85:1) – DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, DTS-HD Master Audio Mono
• Audio Commentary with director Bob Clark
• Audio Commentary with actors John Saxon and Keir Dullea

DISC 2:

• NEW Film and Furs – Remembering Black Christmas with Art Hindle
• NEW Victims and Virgins – Remembering Black Christmas with Lynne Griffin
• Black Christmas Legacy

Official street date is December 13th but if you pre-order directly from us you’ll get it shipped early plus receive an exclusive 18” x 24” poster of the newly-commissioned artwork (while supplies last). Pre-order now @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/black-ch ... llector-s-
Special note: We do want to address our new transfer specifically here to manage expectations. Our 2K scan was made from the original film negative and retains the grain and softness you would have seen during its original release in 1974. We have not applied any digital noise reduction and restored the original 1.85:1 aspect ratio used in US theaters. Unfortunately, the negative had suffered some damage over the years but we have spent a lot of extra resources / costs to clean it up the best we could. We’re pleased with our results and hope you will enjoy the presentation.
In our efforts to make sure our overall release could be as comprehensive and definitive as possible, we have also included the prior HD version on Disc 2 (and corrected some audio sync issues it had) for those who may prefer it’s 1.78 aspect ratio.
Thank you for your support as always!

Friday The 13th announcements....
Scream Factory
12 hrs ·
**NEW TITLE ANNOUNCE**
Our Friday the 13th celebration continues with one more reveal of a title coming this Summer: James Gunn's cult classic horror comedy SLITHER is planned for a Collector's Edition release!
No other details to report at this time. Who's a fan of this gory fun throwback to B-films?

**NEW TITLE ANNOUNCE**
Happy Friday the 13th! We couldn't let one of our favorite days go by without announcing a couple of titles so here's the first of two today: The 1992 virtual-reality film THE LAWNMOWER MAN will be heading to Blu-ray as a "Collector's Edition" sometime this Summer. No other details to report at this time. :)

Hope they include the director's cut of Lawnmower Man, a childhood fav.

Both are buys for me.

It looks a bit better than the last Blu-ray. Not a night and day difference, but it's definitely the best the movie has looked on home video and I doubt it will ever look any better unless there's some major restoration done. Extras are great, too. Buy with confidence.

Finally got around to watching the extras on the new "The Thing" release. I had no idea that Wilford Brimley is still alive. And on top of that he seems to have all his marbles too. Pleasant surprise..
