Mark your calendars, Mel Brooks fans: Fox has announced a Halloween arrival for the comedy classic 'Young Frankenstein.'

Widely considered one of Brooks' best satires, 'Young Frankenstein' will make its much-requested Blu-ray bow on October 7 (the studio previously released a special edition DVD back in 2001).

As Fox has only just alerted retailers to the date, there are no tech specs or supplement details as of yet. But given the wealth of bonus materials found on previous DVD releases, expectations are high for an equally feature-laden Blu-ray edition.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.98.

You'll find preliminary specs for 'Young Frankenstein' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under October 7. Stay tuned!
