This July, Scream Factory will release 1983's The Final Terror to Blu-ray & DVD for the first time as part of their "Summer of Fear". The initial announcement was light on details, but Scream Factory has now provided the official release date, a list of bonus features, and some additional details on what we can expect from the new transfer.

"We start our 4-month "Summer of Fear" celebration by revealing today the extras for one of our titles within it: THE FINAL TERROR--on DVD & Blu-ray for the first time!

  • New Audio Commentary with director Andrew Davis
  • New interviews with actors Adrian Zmed and Lewis Smith, Post Production Supervisor Allan Holzman and composer Susan Justin
  • Original Theatrical Trailer

This release was a challenge for us to execute. All of the original film elements (negative and inter-positive) were lost and we searched for them for months. In order to create this new HD transfer, we sourced five film prints from collectors and used the best reels. The film looks better than ever (considerably more than its VHS release, of course) but we do feel it is important to disclose that there is some mild discoloring some reels. We have done everything possible to minimize it (for some viewers, it will barely be noticeable) but wanted to communicate it all the same beforehand and know that we did the best we could with what we had to work with.

You can pre-order now at or other fine online retailers. Street date is 7/1"
