Shout! Factory Launches Horror-Centric Scream Factory Line!

The already awesome Shout! Factory just got a little more awesomer thanks to the announcement of their new horror imprint Scream Factory! Shout! already has a killer rep when it comes to cult-cred, but with this announcement the cred-o-meter just dialed up to 11!

The first titles to hit Blu-ray and DVD will be “Halloween II” and the mightily underrated “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” in a 30th Anniversary Special Collector’s Edition!

According to Shout! “Halloween II” will feature:

Audio commentary with director Rick Rosenthal
Audio commentary with stunt coordinator / actor Dick Warlock

“Halloween III: Season of the Witch” will feature:

Not only is Shout! gracing us horror-hounds with these killer titles, but it’s thrown in a few exclusive incentives to boot! If you order “Halloween II” directly tom ShoutFactory.com you’ll get a super-limited Haddonfield Memorial Hospital nurse’s hat! If you order “Halloween III” from the Shout site (which you should!) you’ll get an 18×24 poster featuring brand new artwork. Only 500 hats and posters have been made, so get on it, kids!

But “Halloween II” and “Halloween III” aren’t the only titles coming from Scream Factory! Oh no, we’ll also be seeing new Blu-ray and DVD editions of the brilliant “They Live,” the David Copperfield-featuring “Terror Train,” Tobe Hooper’s “The Funhouse,” the fantastic “Phantasm II” as well as the more obscure “The Island” from Peter Benchley, the Wes Craven-directed “Deadly Blessing” and “Death Valley,” which stars “friend of Favreau” a.k.a. Ralphie from “A Christmas Story,” Peter Billingsly!

Shout! promises that most Scream Factory releases will be presented as “Collector’s Editions” in anamorphic widescreen with new bonus and archival goodies!

The “Halloween II” and “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” Blu-ray and DVDs both come out September 18, 2012. Pre-order them at ShoutFactory.com
