Lots of Horror Going Blu on September 8th!

Every year there’s at least one day on which a bunch of horror classics all come out of the woodwork. For Blu-ray owners that day is September 8th, 2009, as Warner Bros unleashes Snakes on a Plane, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (remake), Freddy Vs. Jason and even the classic King/Romero collaboration Creepshow into the high definition arena!

Below you’ll find the specs and artwork for each release with the exception of Creepshow because nothing has been confirmed except the date. We did, however, hear from Michael Felsher of Red Shirt Pictures via his Facebook page that unfortunately none of the stellar features from the UK import will make it. Talk about a travesty! In any event, read on!

      Well, that sucks… The only disc in the lot I’m excited about is Creepshow. I could care less if I see any high-def snakes on a motherfuckin’ plane.

      I am surprised the Creepshow disc won’t have the special features since they’re already done. I’m sure they’d have to pay for the rights to use them but it would be cheaper than producing new ones from scratch and the sales would be higher because fans like myself that already have the UK DVD would get a Blu-ray of it in a heartbeat. Hopefully there is still time to change that. Can we get a petition or something to them? MGM was always pretty good about listening to fans. Maybe Warner Bros. will be. Maybe?

      Re Creepshow, it is indeed a travesty! Talk about having your head up your ass!
