Jun. 7, 2011by: Alex DiVincenzo

Universal Studios will release Peter Jackson's THE FRIGHTENERS on Blu-ray on September 13 in celebration of the film's 15th anniversary. Can you believe it has been that long? The disc will include both the theatrical cut and the director's cut (with 23 minutes of additional footage).

In addition to a 1080p high-definition video and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, special features on the Blu-ray will include an introduction by Peter Jackson, a feature commentary with Jackson, a making of featurette, storyboards, my scenes and Pocket Blu. Check out the cover art below.

The 1996 horror/comedy is co-written by Jackson and his collaborator Fran Walsh, produced by Robert Zemeckis and scored by Danny Elfman. It stars Michael J. Fox, Trini Alvarado, Peter Dobson, John Astin, Jeffrey Combs, Dee Wallace, Jake Busey, Chi McBride and R. Lee Ermey.

In the sleepy little town of Fairwater, a monstrous evil has awakened... an evil so powerful, its reach extends beyond the grave. Director Peter Jackson and Executive Producer Robert Zemeckis unleash a riveting thriller with the most spectacular special effects this side of the hereafter. For Frank Bannister (Michael J. Fox), death is a great way to make a living: ridding haunted houses of their "unwelcome" guests." But he's in cahoots with the very ghosts he promises to evict! It's the perfect scam... until Frank finds himself at the center of a dark mystery. A diabolical spirit is on a murderous rampage, and the whole town believes Frank is behind it.
