If you checked out their collector's editions of HALLOWEEN II or HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH, you know Scream Factory is giving their all for dedicated genre fans. But when October's slate of releases includes THE FUN HOUSE John Carpenter's THEY LIVE, and TERROR TRAIN, how can you possibly top yourself in the future?

Simple-- by going deeper down the cult horror rabbit hole. We have details and artwork for their next group of titles, which includes Wes Craven's DEADLY BLESSING, the serial killer flick DEATH VALLEY, Michael Caine in THE ISLAND, and the cockroach crunching THE NEST. Both DEATH VALLEY and THE ISLAND have never seen home video releases, while Arrow fave DEADLY BLESSING is getting its region 1 debut. Hooray!

However, what I'm most excited about is THE VIDEO DEAD, a seminal 80s gore fest that Scream Factory will be adding to their library. While no other details have yet been released on the company's plans for the acquistion, the artwork above should give the uninitiated a good idea of what the movie is like.

DEATH VALLEY and THE ISLAND drop December 11 and are now available for pre-order, while DEADLY BLESSING and THE NEST hit shelves January 22nd. Click through the links to secure your copies and stay tuned for further Scream Factory announcements.

Extra Tidbit: What would you like Scream Factory to release on Blu-ray? I want John Carpenter's PRINCE OF DARKNESS.

They should release "The Rejuvenator". The tagline is "Fountain of youth for the living dead.".

Shout! Factory are getting popular.

I do have some of Roger Corman's Cult Classics on Blu-ray. I truly enjoy these discs. I do own "Halloween 2" and "Halloween 3" on Blu-ray, the transfer are great (although lack of subtitles) and special features are outstanding. I can't wait to see "The Funhouse" and "They Live" on blu-ray. I just bought the Australian DVD of "Deadly Blessing", since i haven't seen the whole movie before but it did have an running commentary track by Wes Craven and David Gregory (Who produces documentaries for

I just bought the Australian DVD of "Deadly Blessing", since i haven't seen the whole movie before but it did have an running commentary track by Wes Craven and David Gregory (Who produces documentaries for Anchor Bay and Blue Underground). If they can include that commentary track with new special features, then it will be worth it. Shout! Factory need to get more horror Universal titles as well. "The Nest" is produced by Roger Corman and i think the Renny Harlin movie "Prison" is from New World. I enjoy Harlin's work, but i never seen "Prison" yet.

I always thought Waxwork deserved a proper DVD/Blu-ray release the barebones dvd that's available just doesn't cut it.

Shout Factory needs to pickup the rights for Blood Diner also.
