There’s cool stuff happening over at Scream Factory.
Beyond their much anticipated release of Clive Barker’s original cut of Night Breed (what was known as The Cabal Cut is now the Extended Director’s Cut), here’s a few forthcoming titles to get psyched about. So imagine these on your shelf…
1) The Vincent Price Collection II (Blu-ray)
A few days ago, Scream Factory debuted illustrator Joel Robinson’s artwork for this Blu-ray set, which will be released on October 21st.
The collection includes: The Last Man on Earth (’64), The Raven (’63), Return of the Fly (’59), Tomb of Ligeia (’64), The Comedy of Terrors (’63), Dr. Phibes Rises Again (’72) and William Castle’s The House on Haunted Hill (’59).
The sets’ extra features are still TBD.
2) George P. Cosmatos’ Leviathan (Blu-ray)
Released during Hollywood’s breif, 1989 love affair with “underwarter aliens” (its sisters being of course The Abyss, Deep Star Six, and Roger Corman’s Lords of the Deep [roll eyes, palm to forehead]), and in the wake of star Peter Weller’s Robocop popularity, Leviathan features a lovely Ms. Amanda Pays and a very not lovely creature, that you know, disposes of nearly everyone.
It’s Leviathan‘s Blu-ray debut, and it comes with new extras: interviews with Hector Elizondo, Ernie Hudson, creature effects artist Alec Gillis, and creature effects artist Tom Woodruff Jr.
Street date is August 19th.
3) Motel Hell: Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray)
It’s also Motel Hell‘s debut on Blu-ray, and Scream Factory went all Let’s Make That Motel Hell Disc Our Bitch with a nice collection of special features:
• New: Audio commentary with director Kevin Connor, moderated by filmmaker Dave Parker
• New: “It Takes All Kinds: The Making of Motel Hell” featuring interviews with director Kevin Connor, producers/writers Robert Jaffe and Steven Charles Jaffe and actor Marc Silver

• “From Glamour to Gore” – An interview with actress Rosanne Katon
