In news that could be very bad for the bank accounts of many of our readers (and several of our writers, if I’m being honest), Scream Factory is celebrating its five year anniversary in a big way.



Starting today through June 19, their entire catalog is fifty percent off (with free shipping on orders of sixty dollars or more)! So if you have had your eye on the Blu-rays of THE THING, LIFEFORCE, or ARMY OF DARKNESS, now is your chance. In addition, they are giving away five different prize packs in an enter to win competition. But perhaps the biggest news is the announcement of steelbook editions of three of John Carpenter’s best films: ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, THE FOG, and THEY LIVE. Those editions will be available in August.



From the press release:


Los Angeles, CA – Scream Factory, the horror brand that answered the call of fans for dream-worthy releases of the most crucial films in the genre (such as HALLOWEEN, CARRIE, CHILD’S PLAY, THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, MAD MAX, ARMY OF DARKNESS, THE HOWLING, THE AMITYVILLE HORROR and BLACK CHRISTMAS) as well as some of the deserving cult-favorites that might not have been made available otherwise (e.g. CAT PEOPLE, LIFEFORCE and TALES FROM THE HOOD) is now celebrating its 5th anniversary!


To celebrate, Scream Factory™ is offering three limited-edition steelbook versions of John Carpenter classics ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, THE FOG and THEY LIVE in August, and in addition, Scream Factory will be slashing prices this summer through a brand-wide sale, starting today, June 12.


Scream Factory is also celebrating by hosting a special screening event titled 5 Nights of Fear, airing on Shout! Factory TV, presenting 5 nightly screenings of the cult favorite films NIGHTBREED, BAD MOON, THE EXORCIST III, HELLHOLE and RABID. 5 Nights of Fear will air from Monday, June 12 through Friday, June 16 each evening at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT at ShoutFactoryTV.com and on Pluto TV Channel 512


Additional exciting announcements regarding 5th Anniversary celebrations will be made throughout the year.


Happy shopping, folks!
