Sean and Brad are powering through the Scream Factory catalog. This week it’s a HOSPITAL HORROR double feature of Bad Dreams and Visiting Hours with special guest Brian Saur (@bobfreelander).
On February 27th, Clive Barker spilled the beans via his Facebook page that Scream Factory would be releasing 1995’s Lord Of Illusions on Blu-ray. This wasn’t an official announcement, so Shout! had to counter with a quick announcement via their own Facebook pages. There is no official details on what will be included in the […]
On 5/13, Scream Factory is releasing two 80’s oddities, EVILSPEAK and FINAL EXAM. We’re really excited to add these to our collections and are happy to hear that there will be some special features on these discs.
