Thanks to Amazon, horror and sci-fi fans got to take an early gander at Scream Factory's thus far unofficially announced May 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray lineup!
While Scream Factory has yet to comment - and we expect them to formally announce soon enough - Amazon has listings for new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Collector's Editions ofJohn Carpenter's Escape From New York, Bernard Rose's Candyman, Andrew Fleming's The Craft, and Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce.
I'm not at all surprised with the Candyman news - after Friday's spur of Arrow and Turbine Media Group announcements for the title, it's a no-brainer that Scream Factory is dropping theirs nearly the same time. Escape From New York was already released in the E.U. markets by Studio Canal so that's more of a question of a "when" and not an "if" Scream would update their release. But the welcome surprises on this list is Tobe Hooper's nutso sci-fi horror flick Lifeforce and The Craft.
Lifeforce was a title I'd heard grumblings about a 4K release for a couple of years now so it's nice to see a rumor become a reality. Of the four listings, Lifeforce and The Craft are the only ones actually up for pre-order albeit at the egregiously high not-yet-on-sale price point. Now we don't have final specs for any of these as of yet, but with everything breaking so quickly, expect final details in the next day or two and when they come in we'll update this article and our listings accordingly.
Scream Factory is now posting up the official announcements for each of these. As they come in, we'll be updating each title with the full list of specs and bonus features if listed.
DISC ONE (4K UHD — THEATRICAL & UNRATED CUTS)
DISC TWO (BLU-RAY — THEATRICAL CUT)
DISC THREE (BLU-RAY — UNRATED CUT)
DISC ONE (4K UHD):
DISC TWO (BLU-RAY):
And with that, that is all the news that's fit to print, for the moment. Obviously, this is a developing story so as details come in we'll be updating listings and informing you cool kids about all the happenings and goings-on round these here parts.
