A few weeks back, we here at Backwoods Horror reported that the über fantastic horror division of Shout Factory, SCREAM FACTORY, was going to be releasing the camp classic TERRORVISION and THE VIDEO DEAD to DVD. What we did NOT know, however, was that they’d be releasing TERRORVISION and THEVIDEODEAD (a SUPREME classic in its own right and a thousand times better than TERRORVISION,in our personal opinion) as a double feature Blu-ray/DVD package! Exciting news, and we have the art for you below, check it out!
As with all SCREAM FACTORY releases, I MUST HAVE IT. THE VIDEO DEAD alone hasn’t even seen a DVD release. We know nothing, yet, about special features. There may be none at all, and while that’d be a bummer, we here at Backwoods Horror are excited enough to just finally be getting both of these features on blu-ray (ESPECIALLY THE VIDEO DEAD)!
SCREAM FACTORY has really been pulling out all the stops when it comes to releasing cult horror, always a good sign, and I can only hope for more as the news comes along…
From the Scream Factory Facebook Page:
For the next couple of months on Fridays we’ll reveal a title planned for a future release which is part of a new licensing deal we struck. The first out of the crate are… TERRORVISION (1986) and THE NEST (1988).
The highly-requested TERRORVISION has never been on DVD format before and THE NEST has never been released in a widescreen presentation. That will all change soon.
Check back with us next Fri for another release scoop. And keep checking back with us regularly for more release specific details on TV and THE NEST.
Shout! Factory will continue to present the on-going SCREAM FACTORY™ home entertainment series in 2012 and 2013 with specific release dates, extras and key art for the rest of the title lineup.
