• The Curse of Candyman Continues With Three 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Mediabooks Exclusive From Turbine - May 23rd

    Candman - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray - Turbine Mediabook

    Clive Barker's tale of love, tragedy, and visceral gore calls out for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray with three new Mediabook Limited Editions from Turbine Media Group on May 23rd, 2022! 


    Directed by Bernard Rose and starring Virginia Madsen and the now-iconic Tony Todd, Candyman was a diabolically twisted and unnerving piece of modern gothic horror. With three additional sequels, the original remains the best film of the series. Not a single frame is wasted in this terrifying film. And now we get to enjoy it in full native 4K with Dolby Vision HDR (and HDR10)! And true to form, the good folks over at Turbine Media Group are giving fans three different covers to chose from.  

    Candyman - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ay Turbine Mediabook Cover A 

      

    Limited to 1000 Copies

    Candyman - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ay Turbine Mediabook Cover B 

     

    Limited to 666 Copies

    Candyman - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ay Turbine Mediabook Cover C 

     

    Limited to 333 Copies 


    All are pretty slick and I dig Turbine's original artwork and the Original Theatrical artwork design for Cover B, but I have to tip my hat to the far more limited Cover C. I love that mirrored poster art. I once had the chance to pick up an original poster of that artwork in excellent condition at a convention and I hemmed and hawed debating far too long and it got bought out from under me. So that's probably the route I'm going for with this release. 

    Now, we do expect this one to come out on this side of the pond at some point, but when and where is always a question. It could get announced today for all we know. BUT for now - this is a pretty exciting release. So far I have yet to be disappointed by a Turbine disc release. Now, in their specs they say "Unrated" cut which doesn't run longer just has alternate gore footage that plays a little different than the U.S. release. 

    Which one are you grabbing for? Here are the full specs for these Candyman sets: 


    We dared to say "Candyman in 4K" five times... Now it's coming true:


    CANDYMAN appears on Ultra HD Blu-ray for the first time! UNRATED, of course. With brand new 4K restoration from the original negative as well as HDR and Dolby Vision . The milestone of the horror genre, about which not many words need to be lost, is available from May 23rd in three limited media books with UHD, Blu-ray (with film and tons of bonus) and a 24-page book section with a text by Tobias Hohmann. Cover A – unmistakably penned by Timo Wuerz – is limited to 1,000 pieces, cover B to 666 pieces and cover C (the mirrored motif is based on the cinema poster of the time) to just 333 pieces.

    The advance sale starts now exclusively in the Turbine Shop.
