Yesterday, we reported Scream Factory's upcoming slate of collector's edition Blu-rays, which included Wes Craven's DEADLY BLESSING, the Michael Caine flick THE ISLAND, and the killer cockroach epic THE NEST. Well fans, the hits just keep on coming-- yesterday the company announced PHANTASM II will be soon be getting the 1080p treatment:
Next spring, go BALListic with Don Coscarelli's PHANTASM II. Coming to DVD & Blu-ray (on BD for the first time) as a Collector's Edition! Extras and street date to be announced at a further date.
Yes, you read that right-- not only is the sequel getting a Region 1 special edition, it'll also be the first PHANTASM film to ever hit Blu-ray. Ironically, the sequel has long been the only entry in the franchise with a bare bones edition in North America. After years of being picked on by its special edition sporting brothers PHANTASM III: LORD OF THE DEAD and PHANTASM IV: OBLIVION, the second entry finally has its time to shine! Check out the nifty artwork by James Rheem Davis below and stay tuned for further hi-def horror news... BOOOOYYYYY!
