Scream Factory Announces Vincent Price Collection Vol 2

So by now everyone has probably heard that Scream Factory has announced the second volume in the Vincent Price Blu-ray Collection. Stoked! The first set was an amazing and much needed release.  Very much looking forward to having Dr. Phibes Rises Again and The House on Haunted Hill on blu!

From Scream Factory’s Facebook:


Happy Friday the 13th everyone! We have a busy one today (Halloween Complete Collection box set art reveal at 10:31AM PDT, Night of the Demons Screening Live at 7PM PDT) but we also wanted to kick off the day right with a big title reveal. So here it is…

THE VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION II Blu-ray set is now no longer a rumor and will officially arrive in October! Sales were great on the first volume (thank you!) and we are thrilled to be able to bring more of the legendary star’s films to light in HD. Titles in the set include The Last Man on Earth, The Comedy of Terrors, Dr. Phibes Rises Again, Tomb of Ligeia, The Raven, Return of the Fly and…the William Castle favorite The House on Haunted Hill.

Exact street date, pre-order link and artwork will be show up sometime next month. Extras will be announced sometime later this Summer.


Since there is no official artwork yet, here is my favorite photo of Vincent Price.

Anchor Bay & Scream Factory Release Halloween Collection Art

So we now know what the Halloween Complete Collection box set art work looks like and frankly it’s pretty fucking awesome.


From Scream Factory’s Facebook:


Happy Friday the 13th! In celebration of this infamous date (and with all due respect to that other masked fellow associated with today), Anchor Bay Entertainment and us at Scream Factory proudly unveil the official art for the September 23rd release of the HALLOWEEN Complete Collection Blu-ray! Creative attached is from the 15-disc Deluxe Edition – that includes a rigid slipcase to house all the films, a bonus disc packed with extras and a collectible 40-page book – and the 10-Disc edition (films only but will still have selected extras).

Stay tuned in the next month for more details, including updates on the bonus features and photos taken from behind the scenes! Pre-order now at http://amzn.to/1prVqsX 

Cross Bearer Official Announcement

Fred Vogel has announced that the Adam Ahlbrandt-directed cult hit Cross Bearer will see its first US-wide distribution through Vogel’s eminent horror institution Toetag Pictures.


With fan demand growing the filmmaker swooped in on Toetag’s offer to release a features-loaded standard edition DVD, as well as a double-disc, limited (to a fitting 666 copies) special edition, which will have a soon revealed special packaging. The news came last Friday when, Fred, Adam, and Cross Bearer star and co-producer Natalie Jean released promo videos through Toetag and a number of horror sites. The promo videos also detailed the current presale going on, which is offering $5 off the $25 price tag for the standard version.

Additionally the production team is running a sort of sleazy, Willy Wonka-gone-bad contest; in the current presale customers get a chance at a one dollar bill (straight from a stripper’s g-string) tucked away in six DVD cases. This bill is good for a FREE copy of the definitive 666 edition (but don’t accept any offers to meet any of them at an old candy factory).

Needless to say the 666 edition is absolutely jam-packed with slimy, smut-filled goodness, including a brand new retrospective featurette with cast, and the option to watch the movie with its original ending.

Jump on it now, because the presale ends when the crew appears this month at Days of the Dead Indy, June 27-29th. Or if you’re lucky enough to make it out to the show you can come get one right from the source: both Fred and wife Shelby will be there, as well as Ahlbrandt and Ms. Jean.

Christoph of Artsploitation Films Needs Our Help

I recently found out that Christoph the PR guy from Artsploitation Films has cancer. The company is in an indefinite hiatus now. This was one of the best up and coming distribution companies and arguably my favorite. They brought some amazing titles, including Wither, Toad Road and the intense Hidden In The Woods.  Christoph needs help raising the money needed for his treatments and we at Exorcast would love our listeners to give whatever they can. You can view his Go Fund Me page right here.
