Masters of Horror: Season One - Homecoming

Arriving one week earlier than expected, the fourth and final volume of 'Masters of Horror: Season One' will include the highly controversial episodes "Homecoming" and "Imprint."

Originally announced for Blu-ray release on December 11, Starz has confirmed that 'Masters of Horror: Season One - Vol. Four' will instead street a full week earlier, on December 4.

Containing four episodes instead of the three on all previous Blu-ray releases of the series, 'Volume Four' is easily the most highly-anticipated of the bunch. In addition to 'Haeckel's Tale' (directed by John McNaughton) and 'Chocolate' (Mick Garris), the set includes Takishi Miike's 'Imprint' -- which proved so graphic that even Showtime refused to air it during the series' original broadcast run -- and Joe Dante's politically-charged 'Homecoming,' which both fans and critics have hailed as not only the best episode of the entire series, but also one of the best horror short films ever made.

Tech specs mirror the previous three 'Masters of Horror' Blu-ray releases, including 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 transfers (at 1.78:1 widescreen) and uncompressed PCM 5.1 surround audio tracks (48kHz/16-bit/4.6mbps).

Supplements include the same audio commentary tracks for each episode that were included on the previous DVD releases, but none of the previously released video-based supplements.

Retail is $29.98.
