It’s official; We now live for Scream Factory announcements. After making geeks pant in anticipation for HALLOWEEN II and III on Blu-ray (coming on Sept. 18th), the bloody Scream crew is now re-entering the Jamie Lee Curtis archive for another hidden gem. TERROR TRAIN is going to be making its way to your player along with Tobe Hooper’s THE FUNHOUSE. Both of these films are favorites here at DG HQ. TERROR TRAIN is a really underrated piece of horror filmmaking. I think after ROAD GAMES it is probably the Curtis film that is too often over-looked. As for THE FUNHOUSE, I think this is one of Hooper’s best, I would probably put it at 3 after TCM and POLTERGEIST. Anyway, here is the skinny on the release. Be sure to click on the cover art to pre-order these today!
Just in time for Halloween, we dare you to hop on board for a gruesome good time and rediscover two enduring thrillers filled with edge-of-your seat suspense and terror when SCREAM FACTORY™ presents the TERROR TRAIN Collector’s Edition Blu-ray + DVD combo pack and THE FUNHOUSE Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and DVD on October 16, 2012.

Climb aboard the Terror Train for a frightening combination of blood-curdling horror and intriguing mystery.

TERROR TRAIN (Blu-ray/DVD combo)
THE FUNHOUSE Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and DVD
Director Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist) pays affectionate tribute to various classic horror movies in this tale of two teenage couples who spend the night in a sleazy carnival funhouse.
On her first date with Buzz (Cooper Huckabee, True Blood), Amy (Elizabeth Berridge, Amadeus) disobeys her father and goes to the carnival with Richie (Miles Chapin, Hair) and Liz (Largo Woodruff), but their first date may end up as their last. After witnessing a murder, the four terrified teens are trapped in the maze of the funhouse and stalked by a real monster, a horribly deformed killer who lurks among the freakish exhibits to butcher them one by one. Also stars Sylvia Miles (Midnight Cowboy) and Kevin Conway (in three roles). Featuring special makeup designs by Academy Award®-winner Rick Baker (An American Werewolf In London, Ed Wood).
