Ever since bursting onto the scene four years ago, horror home video label Scream Factory has filled our collections with all kinds of Blu-ray treats, notably giving a large majority of John Carpenter’s films their illustrious Collector’s Edition treatment. Joining previous releases like Prince of Darkness and The Fog, the company has just announced that The Thing is up next!
Finally, friends. FINALLY.
The news broke over on the Scream Factory Facebook page earlier today, where it was revealed that a 2-disc Collector’s Edition release of The Thing will likely be hitting store shelves in September of this year, just in time to watch the high-def monster mayhem on Halloween night. Of course, the film is already on Blu-ray, but this release will be packed with new features.
Because of course it will. This is Scream Factory we’re talking about!
“We couldn’t let this special day go by without some exciting news that we hope will rock you to the core: John Carpenter’s classic THE THING will be getting a 2-disc Blu-ray Collector’s Edition treatment this Fall!” the company wrote, celebrating their fourth anniversary in style. “We are truly honored to have the chance to pay the ultimate respect for this popular and iconic film. Release date is planned for September. Stay tuned to this page within the next week for all the details including new artwork extras and more.”
“Lastly, we want to take this time on our anniversary to once again thank you guys for so much support over the last four rewarding years,” they added. “It’s been an amazing ride and we look forward to more of the rollercoaster for more years to come.”
