The December holidays may be right around the corner, but Scream Factory is already looking ahead to Cupid's big day by revealing a February 4th release date and new cover art by Joel Robinson for their Collector's Edition Blu-ray release of My Bloody Valentine (1981).

Special features for the My Bloody Valentine Collector's Edition Blu-ray will be revealed at a later date, but in their announcement on Facebook (see below), Scream Factory mentioned that they are working on a "new transfer of the theatrical and unrated cut of the film," and they also have a special limited edition offer that includes an alternate slipcover and poster by Laz Marquez:
