So we are four days into the month of October and Scream Factory has been making announcements left and right! One the first they announced a double feature blu-ray for LOVE AT FIRST BITE and ONCE BITTEN. I could honestly do without this release. On the second they announced they will be releasing CLASS OF 1984 on blu-ray as a “Collector’s Edition.” I am very much looking forward to this one! They then announced two more releases, the first being SUPERNOVA starring James Spader and I can honestly say I have no idea what this movie is. Last but definitely not least a double feature of epic proportions, BLACULA and SCREAM BLACULA SCREAM! All I can say is it’s about time! That Blacula is one smooth brotha.
I would personally love to see Scream Factory release TRICK OR TREAT from 1986! Sammi Curr needs to rock on in the afterlife in HD!
Read on for the official release info and photos!
***NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Good morning everyone. We start our month-long “Shocktober” celebration with a new title announcement (one of several this month). Actually, we have TWO films to reveal today that will be in a double-feature: The horror comedies LOVE AT FIRST BITE (with George Hamilton) and ONCE BITTEN (with Jim Carrey)! This is the first time on the Blu-ray format for both films and is expected to land near Valentine’s Day 2015. No details on extras at this time.
Re: LOVE AT FIRST BITE – We are aware that prior DVD versions of the film were altered, specifically during a key moment in a disco in which the song “I Love the Nightlife” song (sung by Alicia Bridges) was replaced by another track. We are doing our best to correct this and will keep you posted on the progress.
Stay tuned this month for many more surprises!
**NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Our month-long “Shocktober” celebration continues with yet another new reveal (one of several this month). Next Spring we will unleash the vengeance-filled cult favorite CLASS OF 1984 as a “Collector’s Edition” for the first time on the blu-ray format!
Although this is not a “horror film” in the true sense of the word we thought it was suitably violent, edgy and dark enough to warrant inclusion in the brand (Not to mention it has a strong following). The Director himself – Mark L. Lester – is very on board with this strategy as well. Those of you who love the film know what a gem it is and that it sports a great cast that includes Perry King (Mandingo, Riptide), Roddy McDowell (Fright Night, The Legend of Hell House), Lisa Langlois (Deadly Eyes, Happy Birthday to Me), Timothy Van Patten (The Sopranos) and even Michael J. Fox in an early role.
No details on extras at this time but they will be announced next year. Stay tuned for more surprises this month!
**NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENTS!***
Our month-long “Shocktober” celebration continues with THREE Films to reveal today to start your weekend off right!
– On Jan 13th, The sci-fi thriller SUPERNOVA makes its debut on the Blu-ray format. Check out the all-over-the-place cast of some well-known names and cult film favorites: James Spader (The Blacklist), Angela Bassett (American Horror Story) , Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba), Robert Forster (Jackie Brown), Peter Facinelli (Twilight), Wilson Cruz (My So-Called Life) and Robin Tunney (The Craft).
– In Feb, a blood-sucking double feature of guilty pleasures BLACULA and its sequel SCREAM, BLACULA SCREAM from the 70s will bare their fangs on blu-ray for the first time too in the U.S. and Canada. Both films star William Marshall as “Blacula” (and who also played “King of Cartoons” in Pee-wee’s Playhouse—out from Shout Factory on 10/21) and the legendary Pam Grier (Foxy Brown) is third-billed in SCREAM, BLACULA SCREAM.
Artwork you see here is final. There are no details on extras at this time but they will be announced before the end of the year.
Stay tuned for more surprises this month…including a killer sale beginning next week!
