Scream Factory is once again making the horror community collectively shriek with joy. Why? Well for starters, they’re releasing a AMITYVILLE HORROR Trilogy Blu-ray Box Set. Fans had hoped & pleaded for a 3D Blu-ray release of AMITYVILLE HORROR 3-D since that’s how it was released in theaters back in 1983. And that’s exactly what we’re getting!
News just broke from their official Facebook page that Scream Factory is indeed releasing a Blu-ray 3D version of AMITYVILLE HORROR 3-D! A 2D copy will also be included for those without 3D players or HDTVs. Although after last year’s 3D Blu-ray’s of CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, DIAL M FOR MURDER, the upcoming HOUSE OF WAX release, and now this, I’d say now is the time to invest in that extra dimension.
The AMITYVILLE HORROR Trilogy Blu-ray Box Set will be released this October, with more details to come.
Here’s Scream’s official announcement:
***BREAKING! AMITYVILLE 3-D NEWS***
We can now officially confirm that our upcoming Amityville Horror Trilogy blu-ray box set will include the film AMITYVILLE 3-D (1983) in Blu-ray 3-D!! (2-D version also included too.)
To our knowledge, this marks the first time an 80’s 3-D film has been presented in a Blu-ray 3-D format. Needless to say, we are very excited about this and hope you will be too.
