Just last week Scream Factory revealed that they’d acquired 1980s demonic-favorites NIGHT OF THE DEMONS and WITCHBOARD, both Kevin S. Tenney directed films that are making their way to Blu-ray for the first time. Since then Scream has revealed the new key art seen above, and announced that 1965’s Boris Karloff starring DIE MONSTER DIE! is coming to Blu-ray in early 2014, along with a double feature Blu-ray of 80s hospital-slashers BAD DREAMS and VISITING HOURS! That is a lot of high-def horror coming our way, and shows home video in 2014 is already off to an excellent start.
“Fan-favorite artist Nathan Thomas Milliner was commissioned to illustrate the newly-designed art for our upcoming 2014 Collector’s Edition of NIGHT OF THE DEMONS and we can now share it with you in all of its approved lipsticked Linnea Quigley glory! As always with our Collector’s Editions, the original theatrical poster (“Angela is having a party…”) will be on the reverse side so you’ll get the best of old and new worlds.”
“Two underrated gems – 1988’s BAD DREAMS (starring Nightmare on Elm Street 3‘s Jennifer Rubin) and 1982’s VISITING HOURS (starring Scanners‘ Michael Ironside and William Shatner!) – will be making their Blu-ray debuts as a double feature in early 2014. That’s a lot of hospital horrors if you also include our previously released X-RAY and HALLOWEEN II into the mix.Some of you may be aware that Shout Factory released this double feature already on DVD only in 2011 as a “Killer Double Feature”. All the extras from that release will be ported over including new extras that are in the works for VISITING HOURS (which had only TV spots and a still gallery at the time.). No firm details to report on them at this time. Artwork is not final but expect it to look close to what’s presented here.”
“Ready to cruise back to the 60s? We are! The 1965 shocker DIE, MONSTER, DIE! (starring Frankenstein’s monster himself, Boris Karloff) will be coming to Blu-ray for the first time from us in the early part of 2014. No other details to report at this time. Check out the artwork, which uses the original theatrical poster art–that we always find groovy.”
