We keep telling you cats to keep an eye on the Scream Factory’s Facebook page, but for those of you who are too lazy or don’t listen, be thankful that we’re here so that you don’t miss anything.

In the first bit of news, SF has posted the artwork for two newly announced titles hitting Blu-ray and DVD! No specs or even a release date were given, but we are extremely happy that they’re coming!

Death Valley – This 1982 film stars Peter Billingsley (before he wore a pink bunny suit as ‘Ralphie’ in A Christmas Story) and has never been on DVD or Blu-ray before. Paul Le Mat, Catherine Hicks, Stephen McHattie, and Wilford Brimley co-star.

Synopsis
A divorced mother, her young son, and her new boyfriend set out on a road trip through Death Valley and run afoul of a local serial killer.

The Island – Peter Benchley’s swashbuckling The Island (1980) starring Michael Caine is coming soon! Here’s an exclusive first look at the official DVD & Blu-ray combo pack design which incorporates the original theatrical key art.

Synopsis
David Warner leads a band of modern day pirates who raid yachts and sail boats of people on vacation out in the Caribbean. Michael Caine is a reporter who goes out there with his son to investigate the mystery of the disappearing boats. He runs across Warner and his band of raiders, and they decide to induct them into their tribe.

      I almost bought the Halloween 2 and 3 Blurays through Shout!, but then after watching Collection Intervention on tv, I realized I didn’t really need to own one of the first 500. I could live without a mini poster and stupid paper nurse’s hat. My collection is out of control.

      The same movies, minus the two “limited” useless extras, is available on Amazon for ten less dollars. That’s the ones I ordered…
