Yes, the rumors are true. Paramount has unleashed some bangers from the vault! The collection is the first release under their Paramount Scares banner, and to celebrate, we've created a special edition of FANGORIA to accompany the box set. The 4K Ultra HD release includes five titles featuring exclusive slipcovers created specifically for this collection, stickers, and a Paramount Scares logo enamel pin along with the special collector's edition of FANGORIA featuring new content.

PARAMOUNT SCARES VOL. 1, Paramount Home Entertainment’s inaugural, limited-edition collection of chilling films, arrives October 24, 2023. Here are four of the five titles:

Rosemary’s Baby (1968)—Newly remastered on 4K Ultra HD, this iconic classic celebrates its 55th anniversary this year.  With groundbreaking camerawork and bone-chilling suspense, Rosemary’s Baby gave birth to the modern thriller.  Featuring extraordinary performances—including Ruth Gordon in an Oscar®-winning role as an eccentric neighbor—the film received extensive critical praise.  Widely considered to be one of the greatest horror films of all time, Rosemary’s Baby was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2014.

Pet Sematary (1989)— Written for the screen by internationally renowned author Stephen King and based on his iconic bestseller, director Mary Lambert’s thrilling Pet Sematary electrified audiences upon its release in 1989, earning more than $57 million to become the highest grossing horror film of the time.  The shocking depiction of unspeakable evil was remastered in 4K under the supervision of Lambert using the original film negative.

Smile (2022)—This terrifying and inventive film from writer and director Parker Finn became a true horror phenomenon, earning more than $217 million at the global box office and becoming the #1 original horror movie of 2022.  A sequel is in development with Finn set to return as director.

Crawl (2019)—Produced by Sam Raimi and directed by Alexandre Aja, this unexpected and suspense-filled creature feature took audiences and critics by storm with its story of a father and daughter trying to survive a hurricane beneath a house filling with water…and alligators.  With a budget of $13 million, Crawl generated more than $91 million worldwide.

Mystery Title—Delivering even more suspense and surprise, the fifth film in the box set is a secret.  The fan-favorite movie makes its 4K Ultra HD debut with the release of this collection.

The fifth movie in the collection is a secret for now, but we promise, all will be revealed soon. For now, here's a peek at the set (minus the mystery title), with a glimpse of those exclusive slipcovers, the bonus swag, and the box art.

Ah yeah, this is one good-looking collection. Satan's spawn, resurrected toddlers, a heinous alligator attack, and a homicidal tendency that spreads like a plague. We'd say that makes for a solid weekend of binge-watching. Pre-order your copy of PARAMOUNT SCARES VOL. 1.
