There’s a good reason that Scream Factory gets so much love here at Daily Dead and from horror fans around the world. Not only are they giving the high definition treatment to cult classics we’ve been dying to see on Blu-ray, but they’re also introducing a younger generation of fans to obscure titles they may not be aware of.

Today, Fangoria announced that they’ve teamed up with Scream Factory for a limited edition special issue that focuses on the horror label and provides in-depth interviews, photos, and more:

via Fangoria: “FANGORIA is pleased as putrid punch to announce the mother of all creepy collaborations: a massively cool partnership between America’s favorite horror magazine and the nation’s best-selling retro-horror boutique home-video imprint, Scream Factory.

Coming this summer is a glorious, limited-edition FANGORIA Presents: SCREAM FACTORY special issue (see the cover below), a complete A-Z essay compendium spotlighting every classic and cult horror film currently offered by the celebrated label, penned by FANGORIA staffers and supported by in-depth interviews and acres of rare, full-color photos. This glossy love letter will be printed on heavier paper stock and sold only via specialty newsstands and at Fangoria.com.

“The team here at Scream Factory is honored to be working on such an in-depth and fun project with FANGORIA,” say Scream Factory brain trusts Cliff MacMillan and Jeff Nelson. “Since many of our releases are films we grew up on and that appeared in Fango in the past, this special edition is a surreal full-circle moment for us, and we hope for our fans as well.”

Fango editor Chris Alexander concurs: “Scream Factory has created a name for itself not just for delivering beautiful releases of classic titles like DAY OF THE DEAD, THE HOWLING, NIGHT OF THE DEMONS and HALLOWEEN II, but in rolling out the red carpet for lesser-loved gems like THE ISLAND, PSYCHO III, THE HORROR SHOW and DIE, MONSTER, DIE! This magazine offers an opportunity for our staff to rhapsodize over this wealth of genre goodness while also uniting our collective fan bases. We’re having a blast making this thing, and we’re sure you’ll have a blast reading it.”

FANGORIA Presents: SCREAM FACTORY will be on sale in late August; keep checking back here for more updates as we get them.”

NECA has been producing Freddy Krueger figures for years, but they’ve outdone themselves with their latest offering. We have an early look at “Ultimate Freddy,” their deluxe 7-inch figure that is due out later this year. The photo you see below was taken at a special A Nightmare on Elm Street screening at New York City’s Alamo Drafthouse.

The “Ultimate Freddy” figure has been created in celebration of the original film’s 30th Anniversary and will be available in September. Features include: three interchangable heads, fully articulated legs, a tongue phone, and a skin mask. Expect a much better look at this figure when NECA sets up shop at the San Diego Comic-Con in July.

*Updated: A new photo has been made available thanks to Figures.com, who also reveals that the figure will be available for around $25.

TheBeastWithin-boxThe trailer for The Beast Within, upon its initial release in 1982, warned that the final 30 minutes were so horrific that viewers might not survive to see the end credits roll. Scream Factory has already released the movie on Blu-ray in the US, but UK residents who survived a viewing of the grim coming-of-age flick, or those who want to check it out for the first time, will be happy to learn that Arrow Films will soon be releasing The Beast Within in a dual Blu-ray and DVD format in the UK:

“KILL ME, PLEASE KILL ME… BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

Late one full moonlit night, a woman stands alone on the roadside waiting for her husband to return to their broken-down car. All of a sudden she’s pounced upon, dragged into the dark woods and savaged by a barely-glimpsed assailant. But this is only the beginning of the terror in The Beast Within…

Seventeen years on, and the devoted parents of teenager Michael are at their wits’ end. Their son lies in a hospital bed, his body wracked by a mysterious illness. With doctors unable to offer any diagnosis, Michael’s desperate parents are forced to seek out the answer themselves – by digging up traumatic past events and confronting the true nature of their son’s conception.

The Beast Within stands apart from other creature features due to its decidedly grim tone – the scenes in which the monster violates his victims proved too strong for some critics – and standout transformation sequence to rival the likes of An American Werewolf in London and The Howling. Add to that strong lead performances from Paul Clemens and Ronny Cox (Deliverance, RoboCop), alongside a stunning score by the late, great Les Baxter, and you have yourself one absolute beast of a monster movie!”

In addition to enhanced picture and audio quality the Blu-ray platform provides, this Blu-ray/DVD special edition of The Beast Within, approved by director Philippe Mora, has an abundance of bonus features for fans to enjoy:

  • “High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the feature, transferred from original film elements by MGM – available uncut in the UK for the first time!
  • Original stereo 2.0 audio (uncompressed PCM on the Blu-ray)
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • New audio commentary with director Philippe Mora moderated by author Calum Waddell
  • I Was a Teenage Cicada: The Making of The Beast Within – An in-depth look back at Philippe Mora’s creature feature classic featuring new interviews with writer Tom Holland, actors Paul Clemens, John Dennis Johnston, Katherine Moffat and effects wizard Garry Elmendorf
  • Storyboarding The Beast – An all-new animated featurette in which Philippe Mora discusses the film’s journey from storyboard to screen
  • Image Gallery – Including rare production stills from the private collection of star Paul Clemens plus new photographs of various special effects props
  • Original Trailer
  • Reversible sleeve with original and newly commissioned artwork by Marc Schoenbach
  • Collector’s Booklet featuring new writing on the film by Lee Gambin, author of Massacred by Mother Nature: Exploring the Natural Horror Film plus a contemporary article on the film’s production, all illustrated with original stills and artwork.”

Arrow Films will release this special edition Blu-ray/DVD of The Beast Within on May 12th, 2014.

*Updated* While it’s not too surprising that Telltale is interested in bringing The Walking Dead video game to next gen consoles, we have the first details from a listing that appeared on GameStop. Keep in mind that some of this information could change, but GameStop is now taking orders on The Walking Dead Game of the Year edition for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One [Updated]. A release date of June 17th is mentioned with a retail price of $29.99.

Telltale Games has not officially announced their plans for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, so if this is correct, we’d expect more details in the very near future. Originally released last November on other systems, The Walking Dead Game of the Year edition included all five episodes of Season One and the 400 Days DLC episode:

“The Biggest Zombie Franchise the World Has Seen. Telltale’s The Walking Dead is set in the same world as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series. This Game of the Year collection includes all five episodes of Season One of The Walking Dead and includes ’400 Days’, a special episode that was previously available only as downloadable content. Telltale’s The Walking Dead is made up of five episodes that each won numerous high-score accolades and editor’s choice awards. Together, as one season, they won over 90 Game of the Year Awards from around the world, plus prestigious BAFTA Awards, proving that a zombie game didn’t need to be all about guns, and that gamers would respond fanatically to a deeply emotional story that would leave them craving more.”

Stage Fright stars Allie MacDonald, Douglas Smith, Brandon Uranowitz, Kent Nolan, Melanie Leishman, Minnie Driver, and Meat Loaf. Magnet Releasing will release Stage Fright in theaters May 9th and it is currently available on VOD.

Delivery-boxThe Collective recently announced the acquisition of Delivery: The Beast Within and will be releasing the movie to theaters and on VOD services next month. Here’s a look at the official trailer:

“Los Angeles-based entertainment management and production company The Collective has acquired the U.S. rights to paranormal thriller DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN (aka DELIVERY), and will be releasing the feature in theaters and on VOD this May.  A limited theatrical run in NYC, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, and Indianapolis is set for May 30th, 2014 with the movie hitting cable VOD on all major platforms three days prior on May 27th.

Directed by Brian Netto and produced by Adam Schindler (who also co-wrote the screenplay with Netto), DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN stars Laurel Vail, Danny Barclay, and Rob Cobuzio in the paranormal thriller that has been generating buzz since it premiered last summer at the L.A. Film Festival.

DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN tells the story of Kyle and Rachel Massy, a young couple who agree to document their first pregnancy for a family-oriented reality show. As the camera continues to capture strange events, Rachel begins to believe that a malevolent spirit has possessed their unborn child. Told through the show’s un-aired footage and interviews with friends, family and production members, this savvy debut feature leverages the voyeuristic properties of reality television to present a fresh perspective on classic horror themes of possession and the paranormal– and delivers enough eeriness to keep you on the edge of your seat.”
