Scream Factory Set To Bring You Brand New Collector’s Edition Blurays of DEMON KNIGHT, BORDELLO OF BLOOD and ARMY OF DARKNESS

unnamed (5)Let’s file this one under, “HOLY SHIT”. Earlier today, genre releasing darlings Scream Factory announced that the much requested Tales From The Crypt films, Ernest Dickerson’s 1995 film DEMON KNIGHT and 1996’s Gilbert Adler-helmed BORDELLO OF BLOOD were finally getting the Collector’s Edition Bluray treatment, leaving horror fans’ mouths wide open and ending in a group clap that rivals the most epic of announcements. The news of those two films each getting the deluxe treatment separately, and not in a double feature release is awesome, as it looks like SF is going to go all out with each film.

Now adding to the excitement is out of nowhere announcement that will only add to the excitement: they’re also getting ready to put out a brand new Collector’s Edition Bluray of Sam Raimi’s ARMY OF DARKNESS, the third film in the EVIL DEAD series. So let’s all just take a moment to breathe, right before collectively pissing our pants in anticipation.

“You asked for them…and we got em! Both TALES FROM THE CRYPT films DEMON KNIGHT (1995) and BORDELLO OF BLOOD (1996) will be coming out on 10/20 as separate “Collector Edition” Blu-rays. We have no additional information at this time except that newly-commissioned artwork will be revealed next month and that extras will be announced in Late Summer.
The cat (crypt keeper?) was let out of the bag (coffin?) earlier today over a leak on the internet that caught us by surprise and hence the out-of-the-blue announce today. Originally, we had planned to reveal these two highly-requested titles sometime next week. smile emoticon We hope you are thrilled all the same!”

“Today will be one of the more memorable days in our brand’s history that’s for sure! If you’re still trying to catch your breath from our recent announcement of the upcoming Tales From the Crypt films, then steel yourself for the following…ARMY OF DARKNESS – the third film in the Evil Dead franchise, starring Bruce Campbell – is coming to Blu-ray “Scream Factory-style” in October! We will certainly aim to make it the most definitive version to own to date.
We know you’ll have lots of questions on this one but we have no concrete details to report at this moment other than that newly-commissioned artwork (yes, its a “Collector’s Edition”) and pre-order links will be up next month and a full list of extras and specs will appear in early Fall.”


 

Personally, I couldn’t be more excited, as I’m a huge fan, and think these three titles are further proof that Scream Factory knows what their fans want, and well, they’re giving it to them. No more details have been released just yet, but when the word comes out, we’ll let you fright fanatics know asap!
