This year marks the fifth anniversary of Scream Factory and they're celebrating in style with new limited edition Steelbooks of Escape From New York, The Fog, and They Live.

Featuring the same special features included on their Collector's Edition Blu-rays of all three releases, the Steelbook Blu-rays of The Fog, Escape From New York, and They Live are limited to 10,000 apiece, feature new artwork by Nathaniel Marsh (see below), and are scheduled to come out on August 1st:

From Scream Factory: "It's hard to believe at times, but our brand is now five years old...and what a ride it has been! Our gratitude and thanks go out to everyone of you who has supported our releases and continue to do so.

Naturally, we wanted to celebrate this milestone with something cool that would be true to our retro roots and would make a big splash. As you already know, we've been very successful with our John Carpenter films so we looked to some of our older releases of his for inspiration. We then remembered the question we posed sometime years ago to you about your thoughts on Steelbook® packaging, and the response was extremely strong. So, we married the two ideas to come up with the following special offer:

- Carpenter’s classic ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, THE FOG and THEY LIVE are being reissued in a limited-edition Steelbook® packaging. Only 10,000 of each are being produced and once they're gone, they're gone! Official Release Date for all three is 8/1/17, but will ship two weeks early if you order directly from us.

- The cohesive and conceptual artwork you see pictured on all three come to us conceived by artist Nathaniel Marsh (Carrie, The Thing deluxe piece). If you order directly from our site, your packaging will also include a 28.5” x 16.5”rolled lithograph of the illustration, while supplies last. The litho will not be available through any other retailer.

- Steelbooks will be shrinkwrapped. The Blu-rays included inside will have the same content (but with different disc label art) that is currently available in their respective Collector Edition releases.

- To our overseas fans, we regret to inform that we only have US & Canadian territory rights for these films so will be unable to ship internationally from our site unfortunately.
