As we collectively kick it into high gear for the impending Halloween season, prepare our watchlists, and fortify our physical media collections, Walmart has just announced some excellent additions in the form of a new Lionsgate horror movie SteelBook collection. The Blu-Rays drop September 12 and include a Saw 1-8 collection, Leprechaun 1-8, a Rob Zombie Firely triple feature, Rob Zombie's Halloween 1 & 2 double feature, and a Blair Witch and The Blair Witch Project double feature.
Inspired by the artwork of vintage pulp novels, Lionsgate tapped artist Bond to create new key art for the collection. Get your hands on this Scare-a-thon exclusively at Walmart September 12.
In light of House of 1000 Corpses recently celebrating its twentieth anniversary with a series of sold-out screenings and Q&A sessions with director Rob Zombie, we are particularly excited to see the full Firefly trilogy get the SteelBook treatment. Here's an excerpt from Michael Gingold's original House of 1000 Corpses review, "The movie not only walks and talks like a ’70s exploitationer, it looks like one too in all the right ways. Watching House of 1000 Corpses, it’s easy to imagine yourself back in a Times Square grindhouse, and despite what certain New York politicians seem to think, that’s an experience we need more of these days."
The Blair Witch Project turns twenty-five next year, and we'd say this double feature with the pulp-inspired artwork is worth adding to the collection. With Saw X coming to theaters September 29, you've got just enough time to grab this SteelBook of 1-8 and binge a full series revisit. And with Saw The Musical coming to stage soon, there's never been a better time to spend a little extended quality time with Jigsaw. It is indeed shaping up to be the September of Saw.
