Scream Factory celebrated Friday the 13th in style for the second month in a row last week by once again setting their sights on the upcoming Summer of Fear: Part 2 and announcing a bunch of horror films they plan to release on Blu-ray when longer days and warmer nights usher in another summer.
The Outing (aka The Lamp) & The Godsend Double Feature, Cellar Dweller & Catacombs Double Feature (both due out on July 14th):
Via Scream Factory's Facebook page: "1987’s genie-on-the loose THE OUTING will be paired with 1980’s Omen-inspired THE GODSEND from Cannon Pictures.
- Empire Pictures’ CELLAR DWELLER and CATACOMBS (both from 1988) will share a double bill. John Carl Buechler (Troll, Friday the 13th Part VII) directed CELLAR and David Schmoeller (Tourist Trap, Puppetmaster, The Seduction) directed CATACOMBS.
All are expected to land on 7/14 and will receive new widescreen HD transfers. Pre-order links will go up next month.
Many of you will recognize these films from our prior “All-Night Horror Marathon” budget DVD releases back in 2013. At the time, we were unable to create new transfers for a variety of reasons (mostly financial) which caused disappointment from fans who wanted better presentations. (We felt your pain too.) We are pleased to be able to “correct” this now and have chosen some of the more requested titles from those releases to experiment with. If they do well, perhaps more will follow.
Note: Run times for each movie will be exactly as they were on the DVD releases. There are no new extras as the costs spent are going to the transfers."
Ghost Town (due out on July 28th): Via Scream Factory: "Our Friday the 13th celebration continues by revealing that Empire Pictures’ 1988 horror-western hybrid GHOST TOWN, will be riding into the Scream Factory homestead on Blu-ray July 28th. (We’ve had several requests for this one.)
Artwork you see here is final. Pre-order links will go up sometime early next month at www.screamfactorydvd.com"
Jack's Back (set for a DVD and Blu-ray release sometime this summer): Via Scream Factory: "James Spader (The Blacklist, Boston Legal) finds himself caught up in serial killer intrigue in JACK’S BACK. This 1988 underrated thriller (both Siskel and Ebert gave it a "thumbs up!") is scheduled to slash onto DVD & Blu-ray for the first time this Summer!
Artwork you see here is final. Pre-order links will go up sometime early next month at www.screamfactorydvd.com. No word to report yet on any extras."
Nomads (slated for a summer release): Via Scream Factory: "This Summer we will be releasing the 1986 shocker NOMADS for the first time on Blu-ray!
From the Director of Predator and Die Hard, the action centers on Pierce Brosnan (Tomorrow Never Dies) as a doctor battling demonic spirits. Also along for the ride: Lesley Anne-Down (The Great Train Robbery), Mary Woronov (Rock N Roll High School, Night of the Comet) and even 80s singer Adam Ant (!?)
Artwork you see here – sporting the classic original theatrical key art - is final. Street date has not been locked yet but we’ll keep you posted when its confirmed. No word to report yet on any extras.
And if you think we're done, we're barely getting started...expect more new title announces in the next couple of months!"
In addition the aforementioned titles, Scream Factory revealed the final extras for their Blu-ray release of Scarecrows:
