Scream Factory Announces “THE THING” Collector’s Edition Blu-ray!Movies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
For those of us within the collector’s market, few boutique labels have come out of the gate as strong or as fan-friendly as Scream Factory. Bringing both fan favorites and obscure horror oddities to Blu-ray, Scream Factory has gone the extra mile in their high-definition endeavors and continue to do so with a year that includes upcoming Blu-rays of SESSION 9, BAD MOON and Collector’s Edition releases of RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD and INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. And in celebration of their fourth anniversary, Scream Factory let another terror title be known for their upcoming 2016 slate: a Collector’s Edition release for John Carpenter’s THE THING!
An often-requested title for the company, considering their Carpenter-centric output in the past, THE THING will be released this September in a 2-disc set, complete with new artwork and features to be revealed soon. While not much else is known about this highly-anticipated specialty release, FANGORIA can confirm that the title will not only feature a new 2K transfer, but interviews with several of the film’s cast! Meanwhile, you can stay tuned on more from Scream Factory, including their original production FENDER BENDER (which hits theaters this Friday, June 3rd), here at FANGORIA.com!
