Scream Factory is up to their shenanigans again. They will be releasing Blu-ray versions of THE BURNING and THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN on May 21, 2013.
Check out the official press release:
Disfigured and hooded mad killers are on the loose this spring as SCREAM FACTORY invites loyal fans and collectors to embark on a nostalgic trip filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense and terror! On May 21, 2013, the gory summer camp slasher The BURNING created and produced by Harvey Weinstein and features Fisher Stevens (The Cove), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) and Holly Hunter (The Piano) in their early film roles and Charles B. Pierceâ€™s long sought-after THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN starring Oscar-winner Ben Johnson and Dawn Wells (Gilliganâ€™s Island) , arrive on home entertainment shelves everywhere from Shout! Factory.
Both movies debut for the first time on Blu-ray. The BURNING will be presented as a Collectorâ€™s Edition Blu-ray + DVD Combo pack that boasts insightful bonus content, and a reversible wrap with original theatrical key art. THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack contains director Charles B. Pierceâ€™s rare cult movie classic THE EVICTORS as a bonus movie presentation on the DVD plus more extras to be announced at a later date.
Preliminary special features for THE BURNING include an Audio Commentary with director Tony Maylam, moderated by Alan Jones and “Blood n Fire Memories.” Both are already on the DVD, so you can expect some addition supplements to be revealed soon.
THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN’s special features have not been revealed yet. However, the fact that they’re including another of Pierce’s films, THE EVICTORS, is kind of special enough.
Scream Factory will soon be releasing THE NEST, PRISON, TERROR VISION/VIDEO DEAD double feature, PHANTASM II, FROM BEYOND, THE VAMPIRE LOVERS and LIFEFORCE on Blu-ray. They’re the best, simple as that.
