Check this out, horror fanatics: This fall is looking like it's going to be a thing of HD beauty courtesy of Shout! Factory's new line-up of Blu-rays from their "Scream Factory" collection!

Debuting this September, Scream Factory boasts a scary slate of fan-favorite thrillers from the 1980s, many of which have never been available on Blu-ray before. Titles include HALLOWEEN II and TERROR TRAIN , (both starring Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis); the 30th Anniversary release of HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH ; THEY LIVE from director John Carpenter (The Thing); Peter Benchleys THE ISLAND starring Michael Caine, THE FUNHOUSE from director Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist); the nightmarish PHANTASM II; and the much-anticipated DVD debuts of DEADLY BLESSING , directed by Wes Craven (Scream) and featuring Sharon Stone in an early role, and DEATH VALLEY starring Peter Billingsley (A Christmas Story). Each title will be presented in anamorphic widescreen, and most will be released in a Collectors Edition packed with new bonus content, archival materials, a collectible cover featuring newly rendered retro-style artwork, a reversible wrap with original theatrical key art and more!

Things kick off on SEPTEMBER 18, 2012; fans will rejoice as Shout! Factory unleashes HALLOWEEN II Collectors Edition and HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH 30th Anniversary Special Collectors Edition on Blu-ray and DVD.

Excellent! I'll definitely be picking up the Halloween titles, maybe a couple of the others as well. I'm digging the new cover art too!

Excellent

I am glad that Shout Factory has the balls to put a real Collector's Edition of "Halloween 2". I do have Universal Blu-ray from last year, which it has a good transfer but disappointing in special features expect for "Terror in the Aisles". I hope Shout Factory would put subtitles in their releases. I am a fan of their product and i also looking forward of getting the other movies on Blu-ray too. Thanks Shout Factory!!!! and thanks to Universal to sell their video rights to get the special
