#SDCC: Scream Factory Announces 10 New Titles Headed to Blu-ray

In the midst of their 5th year anniversary, Scream Factory took to the stage at the SDCC to announce a slew of new titles that they're bringing to Blu-ray soon.

Here's the thing about this announcement though: It's a bit underwhelming.

Misery, Drag Me To Hell, The Strangers, and Silent Night, Deadly Night are all great titles, but they're already on Blu-ray, so unless each of them get stellar new transfers and come with some crazy Bonus Features, it's just a double dip. No thanks. Of course if you don't already have these titles on Blu-ray, then they are well-worth adding to your collection.

And are we crazy for not caring about Darkman II & III, Eye of the Cat, and Attack of the Puppet People

Cyborg we can get behind though. American Gothic too.

We love us some Scream Factory, but with all of the great Horror & Genre titles out there that desperately deserve the Blu-ray treatment, is this the best that they can do?


We just revealed the following upcoming Scream Factory Blu-ray releases at our Comic Con panel this evening. Here's the line-up that will be coming soon to you in Nov and early 2018:

  • SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT (Collector's Edition) (1984) – Ho Ho Horror! The anti-holiday slasher cult classic favorite is being prepped for release before Christmas.
  • MISERY (Collector’s Edition) (1990) – Hide the sledgehammers! Stephen King and Rob Reiner’s iconic classic receives the deluxe treatment it rightfully deserves.
  • DRAG ME TO HELL (Collector’s Edition) (2009) – We go more in-depth into Sam Raimi’s wildly-entertaining and wicked soul-cursing hit film.
  • THE STRANGERS (Collector’s Edition) (2008) – One of the scariest film ever in the “home invasion” subgenre gets an upgrade ahead of its planned 2018 sequel.
  • CYBORG (Collector’s Edition) (1989) Martial arts legend Jean-Claude Van Damme battles evil in this late 80s post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller.
  • AMERICAN GOTHIC (1988) – Often-requested quasi slasher film starring Rod Steiger and Yvonne DeCarlo. From the Director of The Legend of Hell House.
  • DARKMAN II (1995) & DARKMAN III (1996) – First time on Blu-ray! Both star Arnold Vosloo. Jeff Fahey appears in III. Official street dates for both are 11/7/17. Extras are in progress and will be announced at a later date.
  • EYE OF THE CAT (1969) – From the Screenwriter of Psycho and stars Eleanor Parker. First time on a home entertainment format!
