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.

    Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

    Published

    on

    As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which is why I’m looking forward to Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and if you are too, check out the film’s new trailer and poster.

    Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, and Mel Brooks.

    Look for it in theaters on July 13, 2018.

    Synopsis:
    In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

    But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

    Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

    Published

    on

    The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

    The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

    Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

    We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.
