The Serpent and the Rainbow


Street Date: February 23, 2016
Quote: After a couple of street date delays, we can finally share with you more concrete news about our upcoming Blu-ray release of Wes Craven’s underrated and thought-provoking voodoo film. We thank you for being patient. This of course is a bittersweet release for us due to the passing of Mr. Craven (who we still mourn). Originally, Craven was set to be involved in the project and the title was scheduled for Aug of last year. This had to be pushed back because of reasons we now all know.

We were then set for its new street date in Jan. However, when we saw the HD transfer that was provided to us, we were not satisfied and felt strongly that our release deserved better (it being our last Craven film). Therefore, we moved the date to 2/23 so that we could create an all-new HD transfer from the inter-positive film element. Serpent and the Rainbow has never looked better and we hope you will agree.

Extras will include:
  • NEW audio commentary with actor Bill Pullman
  • NEW The Making of The Serpent and the Rainbow featuring new interviews with actor Bill Pullman, author Wade Davis, director of photography John Lindley and special makeup effects artists Lance Anderson and David Anderson
  • Original Theatrical Trailer and TV Spot
  • Still Gallery

Death Becomes Her


Street Date: April 26th, 2016
Quote: Director Robert Zemeckis was recently kind enough to do a new interview for us! Because of this and since we have plenty other extras in progress (to be announced at a later date) we have upgraded the release to “Collector’s Edition” status--meaning it will now have a limited-edition slipcover added.

As thrilled as we are (and suspect you are too) about the new “CE” status, we unfortunately will not be able to create new key art on this release due to complicated legal and likeness issues. Therefore, the classic home video art you see here will be on the slipcover and front-facing on the packaging wrap. The reverse wrap will sport the “purple potion” original theatrical artwork.
