Postby knewby » Thu May 31, 2012 5:33 pm

Words alone cannot express the overwhelming feeling of joy we have inside at this moment. If you though the Shout! Factory was a great friend to the horror genre before ... brother, you ain't seen nothing yet! The Scream Factory is OFFICIALLY on its way!

From the Press Release
Further underscoring its position as a leading curator and home entertainment provider of many memorable cult movie classics, Shout! Factory is proud to announce the launch of SCREAM FACTORY™, a new home entertainment series created to celebrate some of the most enthralling horror and sci-fi films with massive cult followings in cinematic history.

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 Benchley’s 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 “Collector’s 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!

On September 18, 2012, fans will rejoice as Shout! Factory unleashes HALLOWEEN II Collector’s Edition and HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH 30th Anniversary Special Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray and DVD.

Wow, not even a year after Universal's release, huh? Does this show that Universal doesn't really care?
I hope the picture quality is just as good or better than the Universal release, and I'm eager for III as well! Those extras are awesome!!

I've been biting my tongue forever on this. Stills, Radio Spots and TV Spots are from my collection for both. The discs are gonna be loaded.

Sadly, the Halloween II extra footage is GONE so I'm told. If any of you remember the BIG fire at Universal back in 2004 or 2005...all of the the extra footage from Halloween II was some of the footage that was destroyed by the fire.

Here are what the covers are gonna look like...I'm not really happy about them. (I think they look too kiddie.) I was shown this about 2 weeks back. Crossing my fingers that they will have the original artwork on the inside that is interchangeable.

There's scare in the air, a tale of wicked delight, a tale of a terrifying Halloween night.

Damn. I remember that fire at Universal, i was hoping nothing would happen to any of our beloved motion pictures. Losing that extra footage is sad, but getting these special editions, along with the extras from you Billy, is sweet news indeed! I will be picking both of these up, for sure!
I don't mind the artwork for either of them, but yes, I would love the original work as well.

What extra footage are we talking about here? Also, not sure I agree with you about the H2 cover looking "kiddie". It does have Myer's bleeding from the eyes on it after all. :lol:

I'd prefer the original poster art as well, but those covers are NICE! Glad to see H3 getting the special edition treatment it deserves.

This is awesome news, but amazon is not offering this new release at this time, I joined the new site to pre order, but felt they did not need my phone number, so I did not place an order yet. So I signed into my account with Amazon, searched for it, and to my disappointment they are not offering this movie, well at least not yet, as I chatted with someone from Amazon online...Dean
