If you ever notice an excessive amount of posts concerning all things Scream Factory from us, it’s because we genuinely adore this label. The immaculate treatment of cult classics. Unearthing of obscure gems ripe for exposure. I could go on for days, but I digress. Tonight Scream Factory had their very own panel at Comic-Con, whey they announced some brand new releases that are sure to make you fall even further in love with them.
We’re talking Collector’s Edition Blu-ray’s of Sam Raimi’s DARKMAN, John Carpenter’s ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13, CAT PEOPLE (1984), and tons more! Oh, and did I mention they’re also releasing Clive Barker’s NIGHTBREED: THE CABAL CUT?! Check out the official announcement from Scream Factory’s Facebook page below! Having my wallet hurt this bad has never felt so good!
Here’s the list of upcoming films we literally just announced at Comic-Con tonight:
JOHN CARPENTER’S ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 (Collector’s Edition) – The original classic siege thriller is intensified further with all-new ‘Scream’-produced extras. (Nov 2012)
EVE OF DESTRUCTION – The 1991 Gregory Hines android-gone-amok sci-fi thriller hits Blu and anamorphic widescreen for the first time.
SATURN 3 – This post-Alien 1980 Kirk Douglas and Farrah Fawcett vs. Evil Robot flick gets a considerable upgrade to Blu-ray for the first time. New extras planned. (Dec 2012)
DARKMAN (Collector’s Edition) – The 1990 Sam Raimi cult classic gets the full on ‘Scream’ treatment with all new extras. (Dec 2012)
SCREAM FACTORY “TV TERRORS” –Two made-for-TV movies – 1978’s THE INITIATION OF SARAH and ARE YOU IN THE HOUSE ALONE? – will be packaged together on DVD for the first time at a good price. Fans have been asking us if we could exploit more of this made-for TV content so consider this an “experiment”. If this sells well, we would love to look into bringing you a “Volume 2”. (Dec 2012)
CAT PEOPLE (Collector’s Edition) – The 1982 feline flick (with Nastassja Kinski, sex, violence and a great David Bowie single) arrives on Blu for the first time with all-new extras (2014.)
We still have more tricks up our sleeves for 2014 and we are working feverishly on trying to close deals so that we can announce more favorites soon!
