Just in time for Halloween, Lionsgate Home Entertainment will scare up the Rob Zombie fearfest 'House of 1000 Corpses' on Blu-ray.

Due in stores September 18, 'House of 1000 Corpses' earned instant notoriety during its original 2003 theatrical release, thanks to Zombie's reverence for '70s exploitation cinema and over-the-top Grand Guignol violence. The film has since earned a devoted cult following on video, and spawned the 2005 sequel 'The Devil's Rejects' (which Lionsgate already released on Blu-ray last August).

'Corpses' will hit high-def in particularly bloody fashion, featuring a 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 transfer and both uncompressed PCM 7.1 Surround and Dolby Digital EX Surround tracks.

Extras will mirror most of what is currently found on the standard-def DVD version, including audio commentary with Zombie and friends, a featurette, cast and crew interviews, a still gallery and theatrical trailers.

Lionsgate has set a $29.95 list price for the Blu-ray.

You'll find full specs for 'House of 1000 Corpses' in our Blu-ray Release Schedule, under September 18. Proceed at your own risk...
