OCTOBER TITLES FROM SHOUT! FACTORY

Looking forward to seeing what Shout! Factory and their horror imprint Scream Factory will announce at their now annual Comic-Con 2017 panel (July 21st at 8PM), they've already announced a few doozies in the past few days (DAWN OF THE DEAD, LAND OF THE DEAD, THE POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES) as detailed below, including some fun titles from the Shout! Select - my favorite being the cult-comedy THREE O'CLOCK HIGH! 

There's been speculation that Scream will announce the much sought after HELL NIGHT (1981), even rumors of George A. Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978), both of which would be fantastic, but I guess we'll find out in just a few short weeks...


DAWN OF THE DEAD (2004)

Release Date: October 24th 2017  

Yesterday we announced George A Romero’s Land of the Dead and today we bring you even more zombie action in the form of Zack Snyder’s thrilling 2004 remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD!

Project is still in progress but here’s what we can tell you so far:

- The Blu-ray release will be branded as a "Collector's Edition" that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date.)
- The newly-commissioned front-facing artwork you see pictured comes to us from Nathanael Marsh (Carrie, The John Carpenter steelbooks). The reverse side of the wrap will showcase the original theatrical poster art design.
- Bonus features & specs are still in progress and will be announced sometime in Sept but we can confirm today that this will be a 2-disc set and will sport new extras (including interviews with Ty Burrell, James Gunn, Jake Webber, David Anderson & Heather Langenkamp Anderson) plus the theatrical and unrated versions of the film.
- Official street date is 10/24/17. However, if you pre-order now directly from our website @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/land-of-the-dead-collector-s… you’ll get it two weeks earlier plus you’ll received a free 18” x 24” rolled poster of the newly-designed key art (while supplies last)!


LAND OF THE DEAD (2005) 

Release Date: October 24th 2017 

We’ll thrilled to add another George A Romero film to our sinister roster this year in the form of LAND OF THE DEAD!

The reverse side of the wrap will showcase the original theatrical poster art design.
