'Puppet Master II,' 'Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge,' plus many more cult classics are in the works for Blu-ray in 2012!
For over thirty years Charles Band has been creating modern day horror classics such as 'Puppet Master,' 'Trancers' and 'Subspecies.' According to Charles Band, Chairman and Founder of Full Moon Features, “After testing the Blu-ray market with the original 'Puppet Master,' and 'Subspecies,' Full moon will move forward with additional Blu-ray releases of the best selling titles in the Full Moon catalog. The fan response has been overwhelming in support of Blu-ray, and they are demanding more. Featuring wide-screen 16:9 fully remastered picture and sound, these transfers have never looked more beautiful, and we’ll re-release the titles on DVD as well.”
On September 18th, 2012, the premiere Full Moon Blu-ray releases will be the first three 'Puppet Master' films, available individually and as a three-disc set. Subsequent releases will include sequels from the 'Subspecies' and 'Trancers' franchises, as well as classic films directed by Stuart Gordon such as 'Pit and the Pendulum' starring Lance Henkrisen and 'Castle Freak' starring Jeffrey Combs.
Other Full Moon classics seeing release on Blu-ray for the first time include 'Dollman' and 'Dollman vs. The Demonic Toys' starring Tim Thomerson, 'Vampire Journals,' 'Doctor Mordrid,' 'Demonic Toys,' 'Head of the Family' and more to be announced later in 2012. They will be available for the low price of only $14.98! Plans are to release two Blu-rays a month with an exact release schedule announced shortly.
Special features for 'Puppet Master,' 'Puppet Master II,' and 'Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge' include: Brand new Introductions by Puppet Master creator Charles Band; Never-before-heard audio commentaries by Charles Band, PM 3 writer C. Courtney Joyner, and PM 3 director David DeCoteau; Behind the scenes VideoZones; Killer Puppet Master montage; Rare Puppet Master promo; and Full Moon Trailers.
