Sometimes you come across something so damn cool that words just won't do it justice. That happens to be the case with Synapse Films' upcoming Blu-ray release of DEMONS and DEMONS 2 — both getting a special steelbook case with cover art done by Wes Benscoter. They are absolutely stunning and cool as hell, making these a must have for fans of both films. They will only be getting a limited run of 3000 copies and once they are gone you wont be seeing them again so you'll want to hop on these ASAP.

Be sure to check back at their site right HERE where pre-orders will be accepted in the next week or so.

Synapse Films Official Site says:

We wanted to keep everyone updated on DEMONS and DEMONS 2 and we’re pleased to announce a little surprise with these two titles. Synapse Films has been approached by Scanavo, the makers of the Steelbook cases for Blu-ray and DVD, and we have decided to do something a little special for the fans.

As many of you know, for the past few years, Synapse has done “Limited Edition” versions of some of our titles near the holidays. We did the limited edition BLU of INTRUDER with the workprint (sold out in 3 weeks) and, last year, we did the limited edition BLU of THE DEFINITIVE DOCUMENT OF THE DEAD (only a couple hundred left).

This year, we’ve decided to do Limited Edition Steelbooks for both DEMONS and DEMONS 2, with exclusive new cover art by the amazing Wes Benscoter. While the street date is expected to be around November, anyone who orders the Limited Editions will be getting theirs shipped as soon as they are done and available (we’ll ship them as soon as they come in to our offices, regardless of street date). These LE Steelbooks will NOT be available in stores and 3000 units will be available direct from our website right here at Synapse Films. Once the units are sold out, they will no longer be available. These are ONE PRESSING ONLY items. Once the Steelbooks are gone, they are gone forever and will NOT be repressed. At this time, we have no plans to release these two films in standard packaging.

The price for the Steelbooks will be $39.95 + $6.00 shipping, for a total price of $45.95 each. We will ship on a first-come, first-served basis (we’ll ship the orders in the order in which they are received).

While the discs are not yet 100% finalized, this is what we can tell you:
