Initially announced at Scream Factory's "Inside Look" Comic-Con panel earlier this summer, the Black Christmas (1974) Collector's Edition Blu-ray now has an official December release date and will feature new cover artwork from Joel Robinson.

From Scream Factory: "It’s not even Halloween yet but that isn’t stopping us from humming holiday tunes today as we reveal to you a few more details about our upcoming release of Bob Clark’s slasher film classic. Read on or “Billy” might call you up. ;-)

- Official street date is planned for December 6th

- This will be a branded as a 2-Disc "Collector's Edition" that will come with a slipcover.

- The festive, newly-commissioned front-facing artwork you see pictured comes to us from artist Joel Robinson (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Serpent and the Rainbow, Bubba Ho-Tep). The iconic original theatrical image (girl in rocking chair) will be on the reverse side of the wrap.

- Bonus features and specs are still in progress and will be announced sometime in Oct. But we can confirm though that we are in the process of doing a new film transfer.

- Pre-order now directly from our website @ which includes shipping two weeks early plus a free 18” x 24” poster of the newly-designed key art (while supplies last)!"
