Movie "Psycho II" and "III" Update

From the SCREAM Factory's Facebook:


** EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT **




Sorry but we have some unfortunate news to report about our upcoming Collector's Editions of Psycho II and Psycho III.

It was always our original intention to have new art commissioned for both (which would be consistent with our other "Collector's Edition" releases) but the studio asked to go with the original theatrical poster artwork on these films instead.

As much as this decision disappoints, we respect it and are still pleased that the original art will still be represented, but this time front and center. We hope you will be too.

For those curious, a slipcase will still be on the releases like our other Collector's Editions. Be on the lookout soon for the finalized specs and artwork within the next couple of months. Street date is 9/24. Thanks for understanding.

Movie Full Info. for "Lifeforce" and "The Howling"

Lifeforce (1985)
Blu-ray/DVD Combo. Pack
6/18/13










If you've never seen this mind-reeling schlocko sci-fi spectacular, then hang on to your brains….Great fun.” – Time Out Film Guide


From the director of Poltergeist and the co-writer of Alien comes a thrilling sci-fi adventure of explosive action and pulse-pounding suspense! With mind-blowing special effects by Academy Award winner John Dykstra (1977 Best Visual Effects, Star Wars), Lifeforce is a gripping mélange of genres that’s “so bizarre, it’s fascinating” (Leonard Maltin)!



A mission to investigate Halley's Comet discovers an even stranger phenomenon: an alien spacecraft! Following a deadly confrontation, the aliens arrive on Earth, where their seductive leader begins a terrifying campaign to drain the lifeforce of everyone she encounters.

Her victims, in turn, continue the cycle, and soon the entire planet is in mortal danger. And when the mission's sole survivor (Steve Railsback – The Stunt Man) sets out to destroy her, he comes face to face with the most charming - and horrifying – being he's ever known.

Will he be able to destroy the lovely vampiress...or will he become yet another victim of her fatal charm?



Special Features:

- The Original Theatrical Version in HD (Blu-ray only)

- Audio Commentary with Director Tobe Hooper, moderated by Fillmmaker Tim Sullivan

- Audio Commentary with Special Make-up Effects Designer Nick Maley

- New Interviews with Director Tobe Hooper, Actor Steve Railsback, and Actress Mathilda May

- Original “The Making of Lifeforce” Featurette

The Howling (1981)
Blu-ray and DVD
6/18/13










A hip, well-made horror film brimming with film-buff jokes and amazing wolf transformations!” – Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide


From the director of Gremlins and Piranha comes the ultimate masterpiece of primal terror. Filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense, "genuine thrills and amazing special effects" (Us), this riveting werewolf tale sinks its teeth into your deepest fears and never lets go.



Severely shaken after a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer, TV newscaster Karen White (Dee Wallace, E.T.) takes some much-needed time off. Hoping to conquer her inner demons, she heads for "the Colony," a secluded retreat where her new neighbors are just a tad too eager to make her feel at home.

Also, there seems to be a bizarre link between her would-be attacker and this supposedly safe haven. And when, after nights of being tormented by savage shrieks and unearthly cries, Karen ventures into the forest to find answers, she makes a terrifying discovery.

Now she must fight not only for her life... but for her very soul!





New Special Features:

- Audio Commentary with Author Gary Brandner

- Deleted Scenes with Optional Audio Commentary from Director Joe Dante

- Horror's Hallowed Grounds: A look at the Film's Location

- Interview with Stop-Motion Animator Dave Allen

- New Interviews with Screenwriter Terence Winkless, Executive Producer Steven A. Lane and Editor Mark Goldblatt

Movie Full Info. for "Dead Souls"

Dead Souls (2012)
Blu-ray and DVD
6/25/13










From the novel by two-time Bram Stoker Award finalist Michael Laimo, Dead Souls draws you into a harrowing world of family secrets and ancient evils. An original production from Chiller, this relentlessly creepy film delivers unexpected twists and turns and will keep you riveted to your seat.



On his 18th birthday, Johnny Petrie learns he was adopted when he inherits a farm in Maine. Eager for a new life, he leaves home to start over in this “new” dwelling. But soon he learns that the farm, abandoned for the 18 years since his natural family died, has a horrifying history.

As he digs into his past, he discovers the grisly details of his family’s deaths, and the questionable teachings of his father, who’d been the local preacher. He also discovers that decades-old forces trapped in the home have revived…and set into motion a heart-stopping ritual prompted by his return to the fold!



Dead Souls stars:

Jesse James (The Amityville Horror, The Flyboys)
Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil's Rejects)
Magda Apanowicz (Kyle XY)
Noah Fleiss (Brick)
Jaiden Kaine (Hellbenders)
Geraldine Hughes (Rocky Balboa, Gran Torino)



Special Features:

- Audio Commentary
- Bloopers
- Tour of the Set

Movie "Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear" Announcement

From the SCREAM Factory's Facebook:


** EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT **




Chiller TV's recent flick Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear finds a home in our 'Factory' and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 10/22--right before Halloween!

From the people that brought you Steve Niles’ Remains and Dead Souls comes a terrifying new anthology film based on the human senses…





Smell directed by Nick Everhart:

Left by his wife and stuck in a dead-end job, Seth Kyle’s life is the definition of undesirable…until a mysterious saleswoman shows up at his door offering him “a scent to die for.

Armed with a new air of self-confidence and a never-ending barrage of attention, Seth quickly learns that the smell of success comes with a deadly price.





Sight directed by Miko Hughes:

Unsatisfied with his own version of reality, an optometrist develops a machine that can harness the visions of all of his patients.

In an attempt to show his favorite patient’s abusive boyfriend the error of his ways, the doctor injects a series of viciously brutal images into his mind, leading to a visceral bloodbath of reality and hallucinations.





Touch directed by Emily Hagins:

After a car accident leaves him stranded in the middle of nowhere, a 12-year-old blind boy stumbles into the stomping grounds of a sadistic serial killer.

Using his memory and strong sense of touch, he must navigate through the unfamiliar territory as the killer quickly closes in.





Taste directed by Eric England:

A street-smart hacker is brought in for a job interview with a mysterious corporation. He soon learns that the company is led by a man-eater who has impeccable taste…

and doesn’t take “no” for an answer.





Hearing directed by Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton:

While researching an urban legend about a song that’s long been thought lost, a group of friends piece together all the existing recordings of it, bringing it back to life for the first time in decades.

Before long, they discover the bone-chilling truth of what happens to anyone who listens to it and why it was buried for so long.

The 1991 Gregory Hines android-gone-amok sci-fi thriller hits Blu and anamorphic widescreen for the first time.

Yeah, I'd like to chime in on that.

Why do so many Blu-Ray releases of classic movies use horrid new artwork? What's wrong with just using the original artwork?

This was the original poster for the film (also used by CBS/Fox release):
