Synapse’s “DEMONS” discs have a date!Movies/TV,News Michael Gingold
Synapse Films is giving Lamberto Bava’s DEMONS duo their full due with Steelbook Blu-ray/DVD combo releases, and now there’s a specific street date to await. The company has newly announced DVD-only editions of a pair of its popular Blu-rays coming as well.
Synapse has announced that its new special editions of DEMONS and DEMONS 2 will be released October 29, just in time for Halloween consumption. Boasting new hi-def transfers and jam-packed with fresh extras (see full details here), the Steelbooks are limited to 3,000 copies each and are priced at $39.95 plus shipping/handling. You can pre-order DEMONS here and DEMONS 2 here, and look for our own new interview with Bava in Fango #328, on sale in October.
In addition, Synapse has DVDs of Frank Henenlotter’s FRANKENHOOKER and the Hammer fave TWINS OF EVIL set for September 10. FRANKENHOOKER will contain all the extras from the previous Blu-ray, including commentary by Henenlotter and FX creator Gabe Bartalos, while TWINS, due to limitations of the DVD format, will include just “The Flesh and the Fury: X-Posing TWINS OF EVIL,” the terrific feature-length (84 minutes) documentary on the movie’s production and history, plus new cover art. Retail price for each of these is $19.95.
