Three New Blu-Ray Releases From Scream Factory Bring John Carpenter Classics Home

Going to be another huge year for John Carpenter fans – it would appear.   A new chapter in the Halloween franchise hits this fall but before that – it’s time to visit some of the modern masters earlier and in some cases – overlooked works.   Enter Scream Factory who have made their name in giving the fans kick ass releases of their favorite genre fare.

One fan-favorite title that fans have been clamouring for is Carpenter’s In The Mouth Of Madness.   Check out how Scream Factory pays their respect with this incredible Collectors Edition release:

And last but certainly not least – the made for TV Someone’s Watching Me – this one originally seen the light of day back in the fall of 1978 and now thanks to Scream Factory you can watch it in all its Blu-ray glory.   Specs you say?   Check them out!
