The Shout! Factor horror imprint Scream Factory sprung to life around the films of John Carpenter and they're continuing the Carpenter love with a trio of new Blu-ray releases coming July 24th with new 2K scans for the TV movie Someone's Watching Me (1978) and the Chevy Chase vehicle Memoirs of An Invisible Man (1992) plus a new 4K scan of Carpenter's last (in my opinion) masterpiece, In The Mouth of Madness (1995), plus we get new extras! 

On July 24th, Scream Factory will release three excellent films from the canon of John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) on Blu-ray, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, Someone’s Watching Me, and In The Mouth of Madness, the latter in a new Collector’s Edition.

Synopsis: Inspired by the tales of H.P. Lovecraft, this shocking story is, in the words of its acclaimed director, "horror beyond description!” Sutter Cane (Jürgen Prochnow, Dune, The Seventh Sign) is the best-selling author whose newest novel is literally driving readers insane. When he inexplicably vanishes, his publisher (Charlton Heston, Soylent Green, Planet Of The Apes) sends special investigator John Trent (Sam Neill, Daybreakers, Dead Calm) to track him down. Drawn to a town that exists only in Cane's books, Trent crosses the barrier between fact and fiction and enters a terrifying world from which there is no escape.

Synopsis: Chevy Chase takes center stage in 1992’s Memoirs of an Invisible Man. Thanks to a nuclear accident, Nick Halloway (Chase) has become invisible. Invisibility makes it easier to spy on agents (particularly chief adversary Sam Neill) who've put him in his predicament.

Synopsis: In 1978’s Someone’s Watching Me, Los Angeles newcomer Leigh Michaels moves into a chic high-rise apartment building. She loves the view. So does the Peeping Tom who lives somewhere in the adjacent tower. John Carpenter writes and directs this thriller where the breath-catching suspense starts at the moment Leigh (Lauren Hutton, American Gigolo) is framed in the lens of a telescope. For Leigh, it's the beginning of terrors that escalate from anonymous calls and gifts to lights that mysteriously flicker to prove that someone watches every moment of her life. Leigh fights back, matching her tormentor's obsession with her own relentless drive to uncover his identity. The prey is now predator – and that escalates the stalker's game to a deadly new level. Someone is watching.
