This day and age – not a lot of titles that have yet to make a Blu-ray debut but one title that many hardcore fans have been waiting for is the often overlooked sequel – Return Of The Living Dead Part II. Scream Factory has built quite the reputation when it comes to these “Collector’s Edition” presentations and they appear to be once again looking to top themselves. While it’s still a little early in the game for complete details – they did tease us with the following info:
- This will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date). U.S. and Canada territories (Region A).
- The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Graham Humphreys (who also illustrated our original ROTLD cover back in 2016). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will the original theatrical poster design.
- Extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced later in early July. However, we can confirm today that we will be doing a brand-new HD film transfer and will be correcting the soundtrack issues that were present on the previous DVD release.
- National street date is planned for August 14th. However, if you pre-order now for early shipping directly from us you will also receive an 18′ x 24″ rolled poster of the newly-commissioned art. We’ll be only be producing 1,000 of the posters so act fast!
Here’s that new artwork they mention – and check back cause I’ll have all the special features info as soon as they let it loose.
