The 1999 remake of House on Haunted Hillfinally making its way to Blu-ray this fall wasn’t the only exciting recent announcement Scream Factory had in store for fans anxiously awaiting fall’s arrival this year.
They’ve also revealed that a new Collector’s Edition Blu-ray for Michael Dougherty‘s instant Halloween classic horror anthology Trick ‘r Treat is coming on the very same day.
You can find more info on the Collector’s Edition and check out the new cover art below, along with a trailer for those who might not be familiar with the movie.
A creepy, darkly comic celebration of the scariest night of the year from writer-director Michael Dougherty (Krampus, Godzilla: King Of The Monsters), Trick ‘r Treat takes the Creepshow/Tales From The Crypt approach to nefarious new depths with four interwoven tales set on Halloween night. A high school principal (Dylan Baker) moonlights as a vicious serial killer; the quest of a young virgin (Anna Paquin) for that special someone takes a gruesome turn; a group of teens carries out a cruel prank with disastrous consequences; and a cantankerous old man (Brian Cox) battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon.
The fourth of July may be approaching but we’re already gearing up for Halloween as we plan to give the modern-day horror anthology classic TRICK ‘R TREAT the deluxe treatment this Fall!
Details we have at present time are as follows:
• This will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date). U.S. and Canada territories (Region A).
• New extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced later in September. Extras from the previous DVD and Blu-ray release will be ported over and more new interviews are underway. We’re happy to report that Director Michael Dougherty is very-much involved!
• The newly-commissioned artwork pictured is Director approved and comes to us from Devon Whitehead. This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will be a theatrical art alternative that Mr. Dougherty asked if we could include.
• National street date is planned for Oct 9th. However, if you pre-order now for early shipping directly from us @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/trick-r-treat-collector-s-ed… you will also receive an 18′ x 24″ rolled poster of the limited-edition newly-commissioned art. (NOTE: Only 1,000 of the posters will be made so secure one soon!)
Hopefully there’s enough bonus content to hold us over as the painfully long wait for Trick ‘r Treat 2 continues on.
