As become a bit of a tradition – Scream Factory took to the SDCC stage and announced an impressive slate of upcoming Blu-ray releases that are sure to have genre fans taking second and third jobs in order buy them all. While we didn’t get any information on special features or new artwork – we did get the full list of titles and they are all must owns as far as I’m concerned. Strap in – here we go!
BUBBA HO-TEP (2002) (Collector’s Edition) – Stars Bruce Campbell and directed by Don Coscarelli.
WILLARD (1971) – The rare 70s rat-revenge film is (finally) coming to DVD & Blu-ray!
BEN (1972) – The sequel to Willard.
BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974) (Collector’s Edition) – The original slasher classic!
POLTERGEIST II (1986) (Collector’s Edition)– “They’re Back!”
POLTERGEIST III (1988) (Collector’s Edition) – “They’ve Found Her!”
DREAMSCAPE (1984) (Collector’s Edition) – The fantasy cult classic starring Dennis Quaid and Kate Capshaw.
RABID (1977) (Collector’s Edition) – The early Cronenberg classic!
DEAD RINGERS (1988) (Collector’s Editon) – Another Cronenberg favorite. Stars Jeremy Irons.
SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE II (1987) & SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE III (1990) double feature – You asked for it (a lot) so make sure to buy it! ?
THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED (1970) – Rare AIP early “slasher” film!
DEAD OF WINTER (1987) – Chilling thriller starring Mary Steenburgen and the late great Roddy McDowell.
The folks at Scream Factory always do a tremendous job on their releases and are great about getting the word out as quick as they can so I would expect updates – and plenty of them very soon. In the meantime, go get that second (or third) job and start saving.
