We've never made a secret for our love of all things Scream Factory. As we've stated time and time again, no one in the biz does it better than the folks at Scream Factory when it comes to delivering fan favorite and cult-classic sci-fi and horror to genre fans. I've already amassed quite a collection of their titles and will continue to do so until they drain my bank account dry!
Last month we shared the news that Scream Factory would be giving Sam Raimi's 1990 cult classic DARKMAN the full-on 'Scream' treatment, complete with all-new extras, and today we have a look at the Blu-Ray cover art, newly-designed by genre artist 'Ghoulish' Gary Pullin. Scream Factory also revealed that the original theatrical art will be on the reverse side of the box.
DARKMAN releases in December. We'll keep you posted on the deets on the disc and its release as we hear it! In the meantime, peep the awesome art below!
When attorney Julie Hastings (Frances McDormand) uncovers corrupt city real estate dealings, evil thugs attack her scientist boyfriend, Peyton Westlake (Liam Neeson). Left for dead after his lab is detonated, he miraculously survives when the ensuing blast hurls him into the nearby harbor. Treated as a John Doe at a city hospital, he is unknowingly submitted to radical therapy which numbs his nerves to feeling–but which heightens his strength and his emotions.
Once conscious, Peyton escapes from the hospital and builds a ramshackle lab in an abandoned industrial plant. Horribly burned and scarred by the lab explosion, he uses synthetic skin to impersonate his would-be murderers and seek retribution for their evil deeds. Peyton also tries to reunite with Julie, who believes him to be dead.
