This film just came up recently that Doc and I were having and it is great to bring you the news that the often overlooked ghost story shocker The Entity is about to get an amazing Collector’s Edition release for those fine folks at Scream Factory.
The announcement came via Facebook – not a ton of details but we do get a date and a look at the new artwork. From the announcement:
“Based on the novel by Frank De Felitta,1983’s intense, terrifying and woefully underrated supernatural thriller THE ENTITY is finally getting the attention it deserves in an all-new Collector’s Edition release this June!
Here are the early details we have at present time:
– National street date for U.S. only (Region A) is June 11th.
– Release will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date).
– The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Joel Robinson (10 to Midnight, Silent Night Deadly Night, Candyman). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will the original theatrical poster design (aka: the big glowing title treatment).
– Extras are pretty much finalized but will confirm more on a later date. What we can announce today though is that all extras from the prior DVD will be ported over and we have new exclusive interviews with actor David Labiosa, Film Editor Frank J. Urioste, legendary genre Composer Charles Bernstein (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Cujo) and the star of the film herself, Academy-Ward nominee BARBARA HERSHEY!
Pre-orders on our site begin today. Includes the Blu-ray plus a rolled 18″ x 24″ poster of the new art. The poster exclusive to us and will be made at a limited-run: https://www.shoutfactory.com/product/the-entity-collector-s-edition?product_id=7078
