The direct-to-video horror chiller 'Bell Witch: The Movie' has apparently hit a high-def release snag, with the Blu-ray and HD DVD versions receiving a last-minute street date delay.
As first announced earlier this year, 'Bell Witch: The Movie' was expected to debut today, August 15, becoming the first direct-to-video feature film in history to make its premiere in high-definition (a full two weeks before its standard-def DVD debut September 1).
Apparently, however, some other title will end earning that distinction, as we've just received word from indie distributor Big River that both the Blu-ray and HD DVD editions of 'Bell Witch' have been postponed, although the film's planned September standard-def release remains on track.
A new street date for the high-def versions is expected in the near future, but no date has been officially set. As always, we'll keep you posted as as further information comes in.
