We recently announced that Scream Factory will be unleashing the long-overdue The Poughkeepsie Tapes this October but, it appears as if these guys aren’t set to take a break as they have just also announced that they will be unleashing George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead in October, too.
Land of the Dead will branded as a “Collector’s Edition” Blu-ray, and it is expected to be released this October 24th. At this time we have no word on special features but, this is what Scream Factory had to say via Facebook;
We’ll thrilled to add another George A Romero film to our sinister roster this year in the form of LAND OF THE DEAD!
Project is still in progress but here’s what we can tell you so far:
– The Blu-ray release will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” (of course!) that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date.)
– The newly-commissioned front-facing artwork you see pictured comes to us from The CRP Group (Rabid, Firestarter, Serial Mom). The reverse side of the wrap will showcase the original theatrical poster art design.
– Bonus features & specs are still in progress and will be announced sometime in Sept but we can confirm that this will be a 2-disc set and will include new extras plus the theatrical and unrated versions of the film.
You can pre-order your copy HERE and not only will you get the film two weeks early, you’ll also receive a free 18” x 24” rolled poster of the newly-designed key art (See below).
