It’s hard to believe that we are five years into the run of Scream Factory – the genre off shoot of Shout Factory and providers of some of the most well-produced Collector Editon Blu-rays on the market. Consistently awing us with must own products they’ve decided to celebrate their fifth year in style with some killer steel book rollouts of some classic John Carpenter properties.
From their press statement:
“It’s hard to believe at times, but our brand is now five years old. Naturally, we wanted to celebrate this milestone with something cool that would be true to our retro roots and would make a big splash. As you already know, we’ve been very successful with our John Carpenter films so we looked to some of our older releases of his for inspiration. We then remembered the question we posed sometime years ago to you about your thoughts on Steelbook® packaging, and the response was extremely strong.”
Featuring brand new artwork by Nathaniel Marsh – the discs themselves will be the same content on the already released Blu-rays but…wait till you see these steel books – you’re going to want them on your shelf. Heading our way are Escape From New York, The Fog and They Live. The pressings will be limited to 10,000 each so if you want one – I wouldn’t mess around. Head on over to the Scream Factory website and pre-order these suckers and you’ll also get a lovely rolled lithograph of the artwork – it’s worth it just for that! Check out this artwork:
