Starz Home Entertainment has unveiled a unique release strategy for what was originally expected to be its first Blu-ray title, the acclaimed Showtime anthology series 'Masters of Horror.'

Although early indications were that Starz was planning to release 'Masters of Horror' to Blu-ray as a complete first season box set, the company has instead decided to break up the series' first season into a series of four stand-alone volumes.

Each of the volumes will feature three to four episodes on a single BD-50 dual-layer disc, with Starz staggering the release of the complete first season throughout the fall.

First up is 'Season One - Volume One' and 'Season One - Volume Two' on October 16, followed by 'Season One, Volume Three' on November 13, and finally 'Season One - Volume Four' on December 11.

Tech specs include 1080p transfers (codec TBA), as well as uncompressed PCM 5.1 surround audio.

Supplements will mirror those found on the current standard-def DVD versions of 'Master of Horror,' which Starz (formerly Anchor Bay) released last year.

Retail price will be $29.98 per volume.

As with all Starz Blu-ray releases, 'Masters of Horror' will be distributed under the MGM Home Entertainment banner.

We've added all four volumes of 'Masters of Horror' to our Blu-ray Release Schedule, under their respective dates. Stay tuned for final details including box art in the days ahead.
