Scream Factory is looking to make this summer one to remember for horror fans with a bunch of new Blu-ray releases, and perhaps one of their most anticipated titles is 2001's Thirteen Ghosts, the Dark Castle remake of William Castle's 1960 film. Initially slated for a June 9th debut, the new Collector's Edition Blu-ray is now coming out on July 28th, and we've been provided with the full list of special features, including a new audio commentary with director Steve Beck:

Press Release: This summer, thrills and chills abound with the arrival of the horror thriller THIRTEEN GHOSTS Collector’s Edition Blu-ray on July 28, 2020 from SCREAM FACTORY™. Awesome ectoplasmic specters populate THIRTEEN GHOSTS, an effects-rampant remake of the 1960 William Castle haunted-house film directed by Steve Beck (Ghost Ship) and from producers Gilbert Adler (House on Haunted Hill), Joel Silver (The Matrix, Suburbicon) and Robert Zemeckis (Cast Away, What Lies Beneath). Tony Shalhoub (Galaxy Quest) leads a cast that includes Embeth Davidtz (Mad Men), Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?), Shannon Elizabeth (Jay and Silent Bob Reboot), Rah Digga (Blade II), and F. Murray Abraham (Homeland). The house itself is a design marvel and a mysterious puzzle-cube whose eerie corridors, sliding walls, spinning floors and phantasmic fiends may allow no escape. A must-have for movie collectors and horror enthusiasts, this definitive Blu-ray release contains special bonus content, including new audio commentary, interviews and more. Pre-order is available now at ShoutFactory.com

Avid fans and collectors, please take note: order from ShoutFactory.com and get an Exclusive 18” x 24” rolled poster featuring brand new artwork, available while supplies last!

A family inherits an elegant steel-and-glass mansion from a deceased relative. The catch is that along with the house comes a slew of ghosts that can be seen only through special goggles.
