Andrew Davis' cult 1983 horror flick is in the works for Blu-ray in July, and you can pre-order it now.
As previously reported, Scream Factory will be releasing 'The Final Terror' on Blu-ray. The release date has now been announced for July 1.
Three young campers out for what they hope to be a fun-filled weekend find their plans spoiled by a maniacal killer who stalks the forest in search of fresh victims.
Specs have not been detailed yet, but Scream Factory has addressed challenges related to the film's digital transfer, stating: "This release was a challenge for us to execute. All of the original film elements (negative and inter-positive) were lost and we searched for them for months. In order to create this new HD transfer, we sourced five film prints from collectors and used the best reels. The film looks better than ever (considerably more than its VHS release, of course) but we do feel it is important to disclose that there is some mild discoloring some reels. We have done everything possible to minimize it (for some viewers, it will barely be noticeable) but wanted to communicate it all the same beforehand and know that we did the best we could with what we had to work with." Supplements will include: New Audio Commentary with director Andrew Davis; New interviews with actors Adrian Zmed and Lewis Smith, Post Production Supervisor Allan Holzman and composer Susan Justin; and Original Theatrical Trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $26.99.
