USA More "Full Moon" Classics Hitting Blu-ray and Being Remastered!

Quote:
There's nothing like a good old fashioned Full Moon feature to conjure up the chills and laughs of days gone by. The studio announced today that even more of its library is going high-def! I'm clearing a spot for Castle Freak right now!

From the Press Release
For over thirty years Charles Band has been creating modern day horror classics such as Puppetmaster, Trancers and Subspecies. According to Charles Band, Chairman and Founder of Full Moon Features, “After testing the Blu-ray market with the original Puppetmaster, and Subspecies, Full moon will move forward with additional Blu-ray releases of the best selling titles in the Full Moon catalog. The fan response has been overwhelming in support of Blu-ray, and they are demanding more. Featuring wide-screen 16:9 fully remastered picture and sound, these transfers have never looked more beautiful, and we’ll re-release the titles on DVD as well.”

On September 18th, 2012, the premiere Full Moon Blu-ray releases will be the first three Puppetmaster films, available individually and as a three-disc set. Subsequent releases will include sequels from the Subspecies and Trancers franchises, as well as classic films directed by Stuart Gordon such as Pit and the Pendulum starring Lance Henkrisen and Castle Freak starring Jeffrey Combs.

Other Full Moon classics seeing release on Blu-ray for the first time include Dollman and Dollman vs. The Demonic Toys starring Tim Thomerson, Vampire Journals, Doctor Mordrid, Demonic Toys, Head of the Family and more to be announced later in 2012. They will be available for the low price of only $14.98! Plans are to release two Blu-rays a month with an exact release schedule announced shortly. Here are the details for the first installment:

Puppetmaster BD $14.98
Puppet Master 2 BD $14.98
Puppet Master 3 BD $14.98
Puppet Master BD 3-disc set $39.98
Puppet Master remastered DVD $9.98
Puppet Master 2 remastered DVD $9.98
Puppet Master 3 remastered DVD $9.98
Puppet Master DVD 3-pack set $24.98

I'd like to see the original Trancers on blu-ray, but it sounds like they're skipping it? Huh?

I might be interested in Pit and the Pendulum or some of the other earlier films, but don't these guys usually have lousy transfers?

I would be thrilled with a true, pristine remaster of all the Subspecies films.

I'll definitely pick up Puppet Master 2 and the Subspecies Sequels. I haven't seen Castle Freak or The Pit and the Pendulum since the 90's though.

I'm in for the 'Subspecies' sequels as well. Blind bought the first one on blu for $5 at 7/11 last week and really enjoyed it!

Compared to other blu-rays, yes. But compared to the previous DVDs, they're a huge improvement.

I'm hoping for Tourist Trap and Dead Hate The Living.

I'm with you all the way on that one!

I would also love to see some of Charles Band's other pictures on blu ray such as DOLLS, TERRORVISION, PREHISTERIA!, THE DAY TIME ENDED, GHOULIES, AND ARENA

But this is still great news! Can't wait for Castle Freak, Demonic Toys, and Trancers! Maybe now I should finally check out The Pit and the Pendulum as well...

I'm in for Castle Freak all the way. I was actually considering getting the UK DVD as I heard it has much better PQ than the US DVD, so I'm glad I didn't get it. Definitely gonna wait for the BD.

And though I think that may be the only Stuart Gordon film that Full Moon owns, I hope to see more Gordon flicks on BD soon. Re-Animator, From Beyond, Dagon, Dolls (which I'm pretty sure I saw in HD on Netflix and remember it looking good)... I'm drooling at the thought.

Great news! I wonder if it's safe to assume that PM 1 will be the same version that's already available? I was fairly impressed with the quality of that one.
Keep The Faith!

Both will be part of a Second Sight box in the UK with Bride of Re-Animator and Society.
