Scream Factory is in the midst of perhaps its greatest run ever at the moment, cranking out a ton of great genre classics for us this summer (The Summer of Fear as they're calling it), but this fall will bring us a plethora of splendid releases as well. Case in point: Stan Winston's PUMPKINHEAD! This September, Scream Factory will unleash the vengeful creature upon us, fantastic news considering it's one of the most underrated horror flicks of the 80s.
Today the distributor has gifted its fans with an early peek at the PUMPKINHEAD Blu-ray cover art, which you can see below. The cover is by Justin Osbourn, who has worked on several other releases for Scream Factory, including PRINCE OF DARKNESS and LIFEFORCE. Pretty sweet, isn't it?
No word on what special features the disc will hold, but you can bet they'll be worth the double dip. We'll update you with the details (and final release date) when they come in.
